Listen to Taylor Swift on iHeartRadio
(Yahoo!) - It's a Red-letter day for Taylor Swift fans, as her fourth studio album finally hits stores after two years of breathless waiting that made die-hard fans blue in the face. Yahoo! Music sat with Swift in Nashville to talk about the making of the album and the stories behind the massive singles "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" and "Begin Again." Dig into the full text of our Q&A or watch the video footage to get the breakdown straight from the deeply red lips of the superstar herself...
YAHOO! MUSIC: When you played the iHeartRadio Music Festival recently, you were doing mostly older songs but ended the set with "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." And it seems like that song is such a phenomenon that it's this very rare thing: a brand new song so powerful that it could immediately become your new show-closer every night on tour, instead of "Love Story" or another familiar stand-by.
SWIFT: I think when I played "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" live, whether it was at the VMAs or it was at iHeartRadio, it was very apparent to me that it could possibly end up being one of those songs that you close the show with. And I'm always thinking about how we're gonna portray a song live, how we're gonna put together the set list. That song is one of the biggest group sing-along songs I think I've ever gotten to put out. So it's really exiting to look out into a crowd and see that everybody is signing the words to that chorus. It's the most gratifying feeling.
