(AUDIO) Taylor Swift Writes Until She Can Write No More

May 26, 2013

Taylor Swift spent about two years working on her RED album, writing dozens and dozens of songs. There was a point at which her label thought she had enough material to release an album, but Taylor wasn’t done writing. For a while she couldn’t stop. But eventually she found her stopping point. “I wrote for two years and I wrote until I couldn’t write anymore. That was the stopping point for this album. I knew when I couldn’t think of one more thing that I needed to write about, couldn’t conjure up one more emotion that hadn’t already been conveyed on the album somehow.” Taylor says she eventually got to a point where she had to tell herself, “Put the guitar down. We’re done,” and that’s when the album was finished. Needless to say, for someone like Taylor it didn’t take long for the urge to write to come again, which she has been doing in the last few months, for her next album, which will be released sometime in the future, when she reaches that stopping point once again. For now, you can hear Taylor singing with her label mate, Tim McGraw, on his latest top ten hit, “Highway Don’t Care.”

Taylor Swift – know when done :24

“I wrote for two years and I wrote until I couldn’t write anymore. That was the stopping point for this album. I knew when I couldn’t think of one more thing that I needed to write about, couldn’t conjure up one more emotion that hadn’t already been conveyed on the album somehow. So when I finally got to a point where I was like, “(Sigh) Put the guitar down. We’re done.”
