It doesn't pack the same emotional punch as "Ronan," but Taylor Swift has come out with a new single.

Another relationship anthem, although one that actually gushes over its subject for a change, "Begin Again" is off Swift's new album, "Red."

The CD comes out on October 22, but Swift Tweeted yesterday that the latest track is available via iTunes RIGHT NOW. Give it a listen below:

Taylor Swift may croon about a love lost - and then found... and then lost again - in her latest hit track, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together."

But the wildly popular singer is anything but sad about the split in that single's just-released full-length music video.

Watch below as Swift makes multiple costume changes and parties it up with friends, all of whom sing along to the chorus and seem quite pleased their pal has left the mystery subject of the song behind.

In real life, of course, Taylor has a different reason to celebrate: she's totally in love with Conor Kennedy!

Sources even claim marriage may be in this young couple's future. EEK!

We still may not be sure about whom Taylor Swift is singing in her latest single, "We Are Never Getting Back Together," but we can be certain of one thing:

It's already a huge hit.

The track is on pace for 600,000 downloads in its opening week, meaning it will challenge Flo Rida (and "Right Round") for the largest debut of all-time and shatter the female record-holder: Lady Gaga with "Born This Way."

The song also broke in to the Billboard Hot 100 at number-72, but its initial seven days of sales, combined with its overwhelming airplay, make it a strong favorite to hold the top spot later this month.

SoundScan will post final scales figures tomorrow, but we don't need to wait until then to declare: the music world belongs to Taylor Swift. All other artists are just living in it.

So... who is it about?

That's the first question fans have for Taylor Swift, as the singer played host to a number of fans last night during a live Web chat and answered a number of questions about her career. To wit:

"I have a new album coming out October 22 and I wanted to tell you about it and I wanted to tell you all about it right now," she told the crowd, teasing them with the title of the debut single off the upcoming CD:

We Are Never Getting Back Together.

So, we ask again: Who is this breakup anthem about?

In the track - listen to "We Are Never Getting Back Together" now! - Swift croons about an on-again/off-again relationship, also mentioning an "indie record" that her ex sets out to make.

Any theories?

In her current personal life, Taylor couldn't be happier. She's dating Conor Kennedy and even just purchased a beach house right next door to his family.

Taylor Swift + Katniss Everdeen = Utter awesomeness.

Granted, the singer doesn't actually interact with the District 12 resident in the following video - which is for "Safe and Sound," the single by Swift and The Civil Wars that will be included on The Hunger Games soundtrack - but still. That notion makes us smile.

Swift and Civil Wars

Below, watch as Taylor wanders around the forest alone, barefoot and ragged, never actually meeting with The Civil Wars (who opened for her at the 2012 Grammys), but eventually picking up the iconic Mockingjay pin from the books and perfectly honoring the story we all know and love.
