“[With ‘Red’], one thing I liked about it, but one thing that’s very different than ‘1989,’ is that you’d hear mandolin on one song, and then on the next song you’d hear dubstep, and you’d just sort of think, ‘What?’ And it was also emotionally — it was a very devastating record. It was about dealing with an intense heartbreak, and ’1989′ is about the phase after that where you brush yourself off, and you’re okay, and you write about what your life is like then.”
