Taylor Swift Working on Songs for New Album
Taylor Swift certainly likes to keep busy. The songstress, who is currently crossing the globe on her worldwide Red tour, announced that she is also writing songs for her next album.
"The floodgates just opened the last couple weeks," she tells Rolling Stone magazine. "I'm getting to that point where I'm irritating to be around because I'll be with you for half the conversation and then the second half of the conversation I'm clearly editing the second verse of whatever I'm writing in my head."
The 23-year-old's latest album, 'Red,' sold more than one million copies in the first week it was released, but she insists she doesn't want to repeat that success.
"I think that the idea of having a different approach to every single one of my albums is so exciting to me," Swift maintains. "I never want to make the same record twice. Why do it? What's the point? It's so overwhelming that when you're starting a project there are such endless possibilities if you're willing to evolve and experiment. If you're willing to become a different version of yourself, you can really go anywhere with it. And that's kind of where I am. The kind of the laboratory experimental stage of really catching onto a new thing that I'm liking."
The 'Everything Has Changed' singer, who penned her previous album, 'Speak Now,' by herself, co-wrote much of 'Red' with several different songwriters, but she says she may branch out even more for the next set of tunes.
"I really loved collaborating," she admits. "You work with a lot of different people and you find the people you have this dream connection with in the studio. I know those people and I know the ones I want to go back to. But I also have a really long list of the people I admire and I would really love to go and contact. So that's kind of where that is."
For now, Swift will have to do much of her writing while on the road. She will play in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Iowa and Missouri this summer, and recently added several shows in Australia this fall. Keep track of her complete schedule here.
