On October 25, Taylor Swift comes out with a new album titled "Speak Now."
We've already given readers a look at its cover art, but now we're excited to go even more in depth with the singer. What was the song-writing process like for the CD? What would she consider to be its theme?
Swift answers all these questions and more in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. Check out excerpts from it now:
On coming up with new tracks: It’s just such a fun challenge to constantly be writing and constantly be trying to top what you just wrote. It’s one of my favorite games to play - trying to beat what I’ve written last. What I wrote last is something I got really excited about when I wrote it, but I know I could write something better. It’s just a really fun thing to go through.On connecting to the material: I think that whatever I go through in life will be directly reflected in my music. If I have a bunch of different experiences with a bunch of different people and some of them are good and some of them are bad and some of them are confusing, you have an album like this... I like to feel like I’ve covered every emotion that I’ve felt in the last two years.
On the single "Sparks Fly:" It's a song that the fans have been talking to me about in meet-and-greet lines for the last two years. So I revisited it, and I breathed some new life into it, lyrically and from a production standpoint. I’m really excited about the way it turned out.
On a summation of the CD: It's a collection of confessions, things I wish I had said when I was in the moment.
