Hello, Taylor Nation 🙂
Here at the Swift Agency, still one guy who knows it’s 172 days until October, we’re aware there’s some tracks from the Queen of Sparks coming up. I loved Taylor’s additions to Songs from District 12 and Beyond but I’m aware that the fourth album will not be done in that folk-americana style that I find so endearing when done by The Civil Wars.
The Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar has a very varied taste. She’s collaborating with B.o.B. and Justin Bieber on each of their albums. I often say, I wish she’d work with more of her fellow country artists, but that’s not to say I don’t trust her judgement. She knows what she’s doing.
As Billboard pointed out on December last year, the Enchantress has often said that she’s fine with an album every two years. Gives her time to work on it, tour with it, promote it and win some awards on the side. That being said, at this point she has material for two albums.
“I’ve had two co-writes, and I’ve written the rest of it by myself,” she once told Billboard. “Co-writing is so much fun when you have time to schedule it in, but for me, usually songs hit me in the middle of the night and I end up writing it before dawn, so there’s no time to call somebody. When there is time and you can get in a room and talk it out and work it out with somebody, it’s like the coolest form of therapy.”
The waiting is the hardest part. To tide us over, here’s the ACM Red Carpet from Ellen.
It was Scott Borchetta, CEO of Big Machine Label, who stirred up the Swiftie beehive online interview for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum when he answered that the tentative release for the Outspoken One’s fourth album was October 2012. The Sparkly Dressed tweeted a picture of herself and mentioned she was happily working on the fourth album yesterday, April 11.

“I often say, I wish she’d work with more of her fellow country artists, but that’s not to say I don’t trust her judgement. She knows what she’s doing.”
yes, every time I wish Taylor was doing something different……I later realize that there is a reason that Taylor is the songwriting genus and I’m just an admirer of everything she does….
I REALLY wish she would (eventually) gravitate towards a more folksy sound. Safe & Sound is definitely her best song and I remember I really enjoyed when she covered Mumford & Sons as well. Her voice is well suited for it and for me at least, I think folk music is very much about storytelling, something which she is quite good at.
