Following her infectious pop tune of the summer, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," Taylor Swift has released the brand new promotional single from her upcoming album, "Red." The track titled "Begin Again" undeniably has a more mellow feel to the prior, with prominent country strings and an (as usual) revealing opening line: "Took a deep breath in the mirror. He didn't like it when I wore high heels, but I do." The pop-country crooner debuted the song on "Good Morning America" earlier this week, with the plan to debut a new track from her upcoming album each week on the early morning talk show until its official release. Swift's "Red" drops on Oct. 22.
