Taylor Swift’s upcoming record Red seems to have a decidedly eclectic vibe, combining everything from country to pop to dubstep.The chaotic vibe and mixed genres on her newest single “I Knew You Were Trouble” complements the lyrics of the song perfectly.
She said about the track on Good Morning America yesterday: “It’s a song that’s one of my favorite songs on the album because it sounds just as chaotic as the feeling was when I wrote it. It’s a song about kind of being frustrated with yourself because you have your heart broken and you knew when you first saw that person you saw all these red flags and you just went for it anyway.”
Her new single has a dubstep vibe, though it’s not so much Skrillex dubstep as it is Taylor Swift dubstep. The track was written by Swift, along with Max Martin and Shellback. The duo also helped her with “We Are never Ever Getting Back Together.”
We’re in love! The track will be on her upcoming album Red, out on Oct. 22.
