About Red [Deluxe Download Version]

Red is the fourth studio album by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. It was released on October 22, 2012, by Big Machine Records. Inspired by past romantic relationships evoking "red" intense, tumultuous emotions that Swift was experiencing during conception of the album, Red touches on Swift's recurring themes of romance and heartbreak, but represents a more mature perspective and also explores the pressure of being in the public eye. Featuring collaborations with Gary Lightbody and Ed Sheeran, the album musically experiments with new genres for Swift such as heartland rock and dubstep. Various commentators described Red as a pop album, while some others said it was Swift transitioning from her country roots to mainstream pop, which they found to be subsequently complete with its follow-up 1989 (2014). Red was generally well received by critics, who complimented Swift's songwriting craftsmanship, but were divided on the incorporation of various genres, which received praise regarding Swift's emerging versatility and criticism for being inconsistent. The album is included on several year-end and decade-end lists by numerous publications. Red received nominations for Album of the Year and Best Country Album at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards. It was also nominated for Album of the Year at the 2013 Country Music Association Awards.
