Released: 12th March 2013.
Released as the fourth single from her massively successful, one-week-million-seller, 'Red' LP, Taylor's latest release "22" speaks about the joy of being a twenty-two year old. Who in heavens saw that one coming?
While it lacks the stadium-worthy, anthemic chorus of "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together", the edginess of dub-step influenced "I Knew You Were Trouble", and the masterful songwriting of "Begin Again", "22" is a solid track still. Whatever it lacks in creativity, it makes up for with a sugary sweetness that Taylor delivers best and it should help maintain Taylor's hold on pop radio. The only danger is that it further alienates her country audience but this really just serves as an appetizer to Taylor's true next multi-format smash: title track, "Red".
