American pop singer Taylor Swift announced that her next album, called Speak Now, will be released on October 25. During a live chat on ustream.tv, the songstress spoke to her 58,000 viewers about the album, about the singles, about what this new album means to her.
She said that this album, which was written exclusively by her, is about her life experiences from the past year.”Each song is a different confession to a different person, and I’m very excited for you to hear them. I’ve been working on it for two years, so ever since we put out Fearless, I’ve been writing for this record and sort of conceptualizing it and putting it together in my head and sort of figuring out what I want it to be,” she added. “I like to take a lot of time in between albums to work up the next one and see what it is.”
Taylor Swift said that she actually wrote everything she lived.”For me, I write everything that I live […] and my only option is to write about what I’ve been through and what I’ve lived, so thankfully, in the past two years, I’ve experienced a lot of things that I’ve been dying to write about and a lot of things that I wanted to say in the moment that I didn’t,” she explained.
The singer also spoke about some of the tracks included in the album. “Mine,” for instance, which is about the songstress’s “tendency to run from love” is due to be released sooner, in mid-August. “The song is sort of about finding the exception to that [the pattern of running away when it comes time to fall in love and stay in a relationship] and finding someone who would make you believe in love and realize that it could work out, because I’m never ever going to go past hoping that love works out.”
Taylor gave some good news during the live chat, saying that the song called “Sparks Fly” will be included on the forthcoming album because her fans really showed interest in it, and that she will hit the road for a new tour after she releases the album. But until October, the singer will be very busy in her studio, recording the last songs. “I’ve been writing it for the last two years, so this summer it’s all about the finishing touches and getting in there in the studio and recording the last couple songs,” she said.
