Papa John’s announced today that they are getting together with Taylor Swift for the highly anticipated release of the six-time Grammy-winning superstar’s latest CD, Red. Papa John’s is offering customers the opportunity to engage with the brand and Taylor’s new CD through a variety of channels, including the ability to purchase Red and a large one-topping pizza for $22 in-store or at www.papajohns.com beginning Oct. 22.
Taylor said, “I’m excited to be partnering with Papa John’s for the launch of my album, Red. I love the idea that fans can order my CD with their pizzas.”Red contains 16 tracks, all written or co-written by Taylor – 10 penned solo and six with co-writers. The album’s lead single, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” set the record for the biggest digital sales week ever for a female recording artist.
