Taylor Swift New Pop Album Titled '1989' Announced & Releasing October 27th, Pre-Orders Available Now
Taylor Swift has been teasing a Yahoo live stream for several weeks and it finally came today and did not disappoint.
In the extended personal interview, Swift answered fan questions from all over the world on social media and from the audience.
"I have three big surprises for you today," the 24-year-old singer shared and played "Shake It Off", the first single from her much-anticipated fifth album. Swift says she wrote and produced the song with Max Martin and Shellback, the team that created I Knew You Were Trouble and We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together. Their goal, she said, was to created something that sounded "like nothing like anything I had done."
Taylor also announced the big news that she is releasing a new album and it will be titled 1989. She revealed the album art as well, which you can check out above. She admits that she loves polaroid cameras and the 'tangible' feel that they give. Her album cover was from one of those polaroid cameras.
She shares that the reason for the title was that it is her birth date (December 13, 1989) but also that she likes to have two years in between albums to see her growth. She shared that her new album would be her first full on pop album and inspired from the music of the 80's that she has been listening to.
"I really loved the chances they were taking. I loved how bold it was," she said. "It was, apparently, a time of limitless potential. ... The idea of endless possibility was kind of a theme in the last year of my life."
She announced that she is releasing her new album 1989 on October 27th and she revealed that you can pre-orders the new album at her website starting today.
She answered a fan question that there would be a deluxe edition of the album and it will include three bonus tracks that are "just voice memos from my phone" to help her fans see into her writing process that she gets asked about so much.
