Taylor Swift’s new single off her fourth studio album, RED, will be “22,” her sixth track on the release.
Since its release in October of 2012, the album has already seen three singles, including “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” “Begin Again,” and “I Knew You Were Trouble.”
“22,” which opens with “It feels like a perfect night to dress up like a hipster / and make fun of our exes,” is a candy-coated pop anthem to girl’s night out.
The track was co-written by Max Martin and Shellback. It has already peaked at number 44 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. Red has been certified four-times platinum in the U.S.
On the song (and the age), Taylor previously told Billboard magazine:
“For me, being 22 has been my favorite year of my life. I like all the possibilities of how you're still learning, but you know enough. You still know nothing, but you know that you know nothing. You're old enough to start planning your life, but you're young enough to know there are so many unanswered questions. That brings about a carefree feeling that is sort of based on indecision and fear and at the same time letting lose. Being 22 has taught me so much.”
