Listen: Taylor Swift Debuts New Single "Red"; Donates Concert Tickets to Internet-Pranked School

Nothing beige aboutTaylor Swift 's new music!

On Tuesday, the 22-year-old country-pop princess released her new single "Red" from her forthcoming album of the same name. In the upbeat song, Swift reminisces that "Loving him is like driving an old Maserati down a dead-end street…Faster than the wind/Passionate as sin/Ended so suddenly."

And you know T.Swift's breakups don't go over well!

Don't ask Taylor Swift too much about her love life!

She then goes through myriad colors to describe her feelings—"Losing him was blue," she croons, while "missing him was gray, all alone."

"Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met," she sings, and then makes her point that "Loving him was red."

We're not sure what color Swift's heart is, but we're sure it's pretty. Per the Boston Globe, the "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" songstress is donating $10,000—and concert tickets!—to students at Allston, Mass.'s Horace Mann School for the Deaf.

Internet pranksters reportedly voted for the hearing-impaired students to win a concert from Swift in a contest sponsored by Papa John's and textbook company Chegg. Horace Mann's principal, Jeremiah Ford, told the Boston Globe his students love live music and he'd be happy for the school to win even if the win were brought about by online trolls.

Ford confirmed Sunday that Horace Mann was the winner, but because of the way the voters were garnered, Swift, Papa John's and Chegg decided to remove the school from the contest and give the students concert tickets to her next local show instead.

Her album, Red, will be released Oct. 22.
