(AUDIO) Taylor Swift Is Working On The Next Chapter Of Her Life

September 1, 2013

Taylor Swift has begun working on the follow-up to her Red album, and just like all of her albums, whatever she comes up with next will represent the next chapter in her life. Looking back she says, “Fearless represents the breakthrough and all the discovery of, ‘Wow. There’s a big, wide world of music and I’ve just been thrown into it and I’m excited, and I’m scared.’” With Speak Now Taylor felt like she had something to prove to herself, so she wanted to write the entire album by herself and she says, “So it was – in my mind it was a little bit lyrically dark and it was something that I’m always gonna be really proud of.” When she approached her latest album, Red, Taylor says she wanted to learn and to get out of her comfort zone of writing songs alone. “So I called up all these people I’m a fan of; producers, writers, artists, and just said, ‘I want you to be in on making this record with me. I want your influence.’ So, I’d say it was me expanding and learning and taking risks I’d never taken before.” While Taylor hasn’t specified what will define her next chapter, it’s safe to say she will push herself to new heights.

“I think, for me, different albums represent different chapters of my life. Fearless represents the breakthrough and all the discovery of, ‘Wow. There’s a big, wide world of music and I’ve just been thrown into it and I’m excited, and I’m scared.’ We had incredible luck at the Grammy’s with that album. And then I felt like I really had something to prove on Speak Now, because that last album, Fearless, was so big. I wanted to write a record by myself to prove that I could do it. To prove to myself that I could do it. So it was – in my mind it was a little bit lyrically dark and it was something that I’m always gonna be really proud of. With Red, I wanted to learn. I wanted to take my comfort zone, which at that point was writing songs alone, and I wanted to throw myself into a different realm, where I was out of my comfort zone. So I called up all these people I’m a fan of; producers, writers, artists, and just said, “I want you to be in on making this record with me. I want your influence.” So, I’d say it was me expanding and learning and taking risks I’d never taken before.”
