The album Speak Now by Taylor Swift is not due to hit stores until a week from Friday on October 22, 2010, but she has now released a fourth track for digital download. This time the song "Back To December" is the first apology to a romantic partner ever in a song for Taylor Swift. Fans may try to guess who the apology is intended for, but at this point she is not revealing that information. Taylor Swift says, "The person I wrote this song about deserves this. This is about a person who was incredible to me, just perfect to me in a relationship, and I was really careless with him." In less than a day the song has topped the iTunes digital sales chart. The first single "Mine" has already reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Back To December" musically has a bit more of a rock feel than the previously released songs. Listen below, and let us know what you think.
