    TAYLOR SWIFT’S HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM 1989 IS OUT TODAY

    October 26, 2014 0 Comments

    TAYLOR SWIFT, seven-time GRAMMY Award winner and Billboard Magazine’s recently named Woman of the Year (the only artist to have been awarded this honor twice), releases 1989 today, the most anticipated album to rave reviews.

    “On this new stage, Ms. Swift is thriving. And crucially, she is more or less alone, not part of any pop movement of the day. She has set herself apart and, implicitly, above…Ms. Swift is aiming somewhere even higher, a mode of timelessness that few true pop stars — even bother aspiring to. Everyone else striving to sound like now will have to shift gears once the now sound changes. But not Ms. Swift, who’s waging, and winning, a new war, one she’d never admit to fighting.” – Jon Caramanica, NEW YORK TIMES

    “Deeply weird, feverishly emotional, wildly enthusiastic, 1989 sounds exactly like Taylor Swift, even when it sounds like nothing she’s ever tried before. And yes, she takes it to extremes. Are you surprised? This is Taylor Swift, remember? Extremes are where she starts out.” – Rob Sheffield, ROLLING STONE

    “The expertly crafted sound of 1989 that marks her most impressive sleight of hand yet—shifting the focus away from her past and onto her music, which is as smart and confident as it’s ever been. Who are these songs about? When they sound this good, who cares?” – Sam Lanksy, TIME MAGAZINE

    “On 1989, she matches deceptively simple, irresistibly catchy melodies with lyrics that can seem by turns confessional and elusive, playful and aching.” – Elysa Gardner, USA TODAY

    “Swift's best work -- a sophisticated pop tour de force that deserves to be as popular commercially as with Robyn-worshipping blog--gers; an album that finds Swift meeting Katy and Miley and Pink on their home turf and staring them down.” – Jem Aswad, BILLBOARD

    “The really striking thing about 1989 is how completely Taylor Swift dominates the album: Martin, Kurstin et al make umpteen highly polished pop records every year, but they’re seldom as clever or as sharp or as perfectly attuned as this, which suggests those qualities were brought to the project by the woman whose name is on the cover." – Alexis Petridis, THE GUARDIAN

    “Her all-pop effort is impossibly irresistible” – Ian Drew, US WEEKLY

    Taylor Swift, who writes all of her own songs, is a global superstar, seven-time GRAMMY winner and the youngest winner in history of the music industry's highest honor, the GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year. She is the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at #1 in the U.S. with three consecutive studio albums. Taylor has an album on Rolling Stone's prestigious The 50 Greatest Albums of All Time (by women) list, Time magazine has named her one the of the 100 Most Influential People in the world, and she is Billboard's youngest-ever Woman of the Year and the only artist to have been awarded this honor twice. Taylor has career record sales in excess of 30 million albums and almost 80 million song downloads worldwide, and has had singles top both the pop and country radio charts around the globe. Taylor's album RED, released almost two years ago on Big Machine Records, has sold more than 6 million copies worldwide to date, including more than 1.2 million copies in the U.S. in its first week, scoring the highest first-week sales debut of any album in over a decade. Taylor is the only female artist in music history (and just the fourth artist ever) to twice have an album (2010's Speak Now and 2012's RED) hit the 1 million plus first-week sales figure. ”Shake It Off” is the first single off her fifth studio album 1989 (Big Machine Records), which will be released on October 27, 2014. The single has topped Billboard’s Pop, HotAC and Hot 100 charts and has earned double Platinum-status by the RIAA for exceeding sales of two million downloads in the U.S., and has peaked at No. 1 in 64 countries on iTunes.

    TAYLOR SWIFT UNVEILS "WELCOME TO NEW YORK" FROM 1989 EXCLUSIVELY ON ITUNES TOMORROW (10/21)

    October 26, 2014 0 Comments

    TAYLOR SWIFT, seven-time GRAMMY Award winner and Billboard Magazine’s recently named Woman of the Year (the only artist to have been awarded this honor twice), will exclusively unlock "Welcome To New York" on iTunes on Tuesday, October 21, giving her fans a new track and a peek at what is to come from the most highly anticipated album this year, 1989 (Big Machine Records). "Welcome To New York" is written by Taylor Swift and Ryan Tedder (One Republic) and produced by Ryan Tedder, Noel Zancanella and Taylor Swift. This is the third song revealed from 1989, Taylor’s forthcoming fifth studio album, while the current single, “Shake It Off,” remains atop the charts across the globe.

    “I started the album with “Welcome To New York” because New York has been an important landscape and location for the story of my life in the last couple of years,” said Taylor. “It’s like an electric city, and I approached moving there with such wide-eyed optimism. I saw New York as a place of endless potential and possibilities and you can hear that reflected in this music and in this song.”

    TAYLOR SWIFT ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM 1989 AVAILABLE FOR PRE-BUY

    August 18, 2014 0 Comments

    Global superstar and seven-time GRAMMY® winner, Taylor Swift, announced her new album 1989 (Big Machine Records) is available immediately for pre-buy on TaylorSwift.com, iTunes and Target. In addition, Taylor released “Shake It Off,” the first single and video from her fifth studio album.

    1989 is a touchstone; Taylor's songwriting and sonic evolution surprises us more than ever before. Heavily keyboard and beat driven, the pop sensibilities that have always been the hallmark of Taylor’s music now move front and center on 1989. "I spent two years making 1989. Two years gives you enough time to grow and change and let things inspire you. I was listening to a lot of late 80's pop music and how bold those songs were and how that time period was a time of limitless possibilities. In thinking about that, this album is a rebirth for me. This is my very first documented, official pop album. 1989 is the most sonically cohesive album I have ever made and my favorite album I have ever made," said Taylor. Taylor debuted “Shake It Off,” the first single, available at iTunes now, and video (which can be viewed at TaylorSwift.com) from 1989 in a worldwide Live Stream on Yahoo, where she told fans, “Over the last few years I've learned a very important lesson. We cannot control what people say about us but we can control how we react to it. We can let it get to us, make us bitter, even drive us insane or we can shake it off.”

    Taylor surprised fans by revealing the 1989 Swiftstakes™ that gives fans an opportunity to win prizes that include 1,000 tickets and 500 meet and greets.

    The songstress also explained that a Deluxe version of the album will include three additional songs and three songwriting voice memos.
