Taylor Swift announced the release of Red in an online video chat with fans, in which the country singer shared her thoughts on the new album's name.

"It was really simple. I wrote a song called 'Red,' and thinking about what that means to me and all the different emotions that are written about on this album, they're all pretty much about tumultuous, crazy, insane, intense, semi-toxic relationships that I've experienced in the last two years," Swift said.

"All those emotions -- spanning from intense love, intense frustration, jealousy, confusion all of that -- in my mind, all of those emotions are red. There's nothing in between -- there's nothing beige about any of those feelings -- so I called the record Red."

The album's lead-off single, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," rapidly climbed up the charts. When the record was released, it more than met expectations, selling over a million copies by the end of the year.
