Taylor Swift talks new music

With Speak Now more than a year behind us, fans are already eagerly anticipating Taylor Swift’s next release. Her recently released live CD/DVD certainly helps tide everyone over, but when Swift talked about some of the songs she’s been writing at Billboard’s Women of the Year event, fans and press alike couldn’t help but pounce on the tidbits. When MTV News asked Swift which emotions she would be pulling from on the new album, she said:

I can’t tell you, because it’s a secret. It will be unveiled when it all comes out, because they all seem to have a theme to them, the records that we’ve put out so far, and this one is no different. It’s very different in what it’s about, but it’s no different in the fact that it has its own name.

This just adds more fuel to the fire. In October, Swift was profiled in a New Yorker article and said that the songs she was writing were sad, but didn’t elaborate further.

What do you think this means, Taylor Nation? Sound off in the comments below!

This past weekend Taylor Swift’s Speak Now Tour rolled through Nashville, Tennessee, and the two-night stop at Bridgestone Arena turned into a party of Swift’s music friends.

On Friday night, Swift was joined on stage by country music legend, Ronnie Dunn, to sing his hit song, “Bleed Red.” Swift also brought out Hayley Williams of Paramore to help her perform the band’s “That’s What You Get.”

Last night, the duets continued. Swift brought to the stage superstars, Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney, as well as upcoming singer-songwriter, Andy Grammer. Chesney joined Swift for his single, “Big Star,” and Grammer accompanied her for his song, “Keep Your Head Up,” while McGraw took the stage with Swift during the encore to sing his track, “Just To See You Smile.”

Swift’s next show is Tuesday, September 20, in Bossier City, Louisiana.
