News Update: Sony All Access and Behind the Scenes of WANEGBT

(Source: Sony Electronics)

Hello Taylor Nation,

Here at the Swift Agency, still just a guy who thinks it’s strange you think I’m funny, I’ve always try to wait for a source… but this time is going to be pure twitter and tumblr for you, because this was an unpublicized event. Eventually we’ll get some sort of commercial from it weeks or month down the line, but you’re not waiting that long.

The Enchantress was part of the Sony All Access event with a select group of local fans at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, this Saturday, September 29. There was no contest or secret code for this one, exclusive events like this happen all the time around brand sponsored events with companies preferring to wait until the exclusive reveal.

If you want candids, you can found quite a few at tswiftdaily.tumblr.com. I’ve chosen to use two of the promo pics since they can be traced back to Sony.

There are a couple of clips of the event from YouTube. Thanks to carriefan14887 for posting! This is a Behind The Scenes look at We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.

Watch on YouTube

And here’s We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, the extended version! See if you can spot a familiar face from Mean and the reaction from the Sparkly Dressed.

Watch on YouTube

Now where is that picture of the llama? Yeah, major product placement there – I’m sure that’s the camera from Sony.

The  2012 MTV EMA takes place on November 11 and will be broadcast live on MTV channels worldwide at 9pm Central European Time. You can vote for Taylor here.

Taylor to appear on the Jonathan Ross show! The Princess in Red does rumor control

(Source: Big Machine Records)

Hello, Taylor Nation.

Here at the Swift Agency, still one guy who knows he’s not going to get any sleep once Swiftober begins, we’re getting ready by taking little naps between paragraphs. The Sparkly Dressed is going to have little to no downtime once she lands on her beloved Fundon. She’s already scheduled to do an interview with BBC Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw. She will also appear on TV to do the Jonathan Ross Show. A big shoutout to @tswiftfanatic29 for the heads up!

Zzz… oops sorry.

In an article dated September 24, Variety confirmed the Enchantress was going to take the role of Joni Mitchell in the latest biopic Girls Like Us based on the book of the same name. The magazine was also the one to fuel up the rumor of Tay taking a role in Les Miserables earlier this year which actually didn’t happen. Fortunately, the Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar did some rumor control of her own when she was asked by Country Weekly about it and took the chance to clear it up:

I’m not confirmed, actually. I’m not actually signed on to do a movie at this point. You never want to talk about something like that until it is a definite thing. I would love to tell that story. It would be amazing. It would be an interesting, fascinating, incredibly intelligent and wonderful character to play, but nothing is confirmed right now.

She wouldn’t turn down a role like that but she is not signed on to do a movie at this point. This doesn’t mean she wouldn’t mind taking on the part. However, for the most part stars don’t pursue roles publicly – that all happens behind the scenes. As some very observant Swifties once noticed, the book Girls Like Us once appeared in the background in one of her pictures (I can’t find it anymore). The only truth we know is that T-Swizzle is not doing any movies yet.

The Enchantress strikes a pose and talks about the United Kingdom with Marie Claire UK

Hello, Taylor Nation.

Here at the Swift Agency, still a guy in a suit who is never ever getting dressed up as a woodland creature so stop asking already, we’re glad to report that October is around the corner. That means a whole load of stuff is coming up. There’s a new song on Monday and CW will broadcast the iHeartRadio Music Festival, but the big one is coming on Sunday next week. On October 7 the United Kingdom Swiftdom will probably go completely bonkers as the Princess in Red will show up in their country to perform at the BBC Radio 1′s Teen Awards 2012.

The Sparkly Dressed will be Marie Claire UK’s November cover. She also has interviewed with them and talked about what she likes best from the UK (hint: it rhymes with “ned neeran”). The magazine has set up its own Taylor Swift page to keep track on all the RED news and her upcoming trip to that country.

Thanks to TaylorVideos for posting this. Let’s go to the video! Here is the photoshoot:

Watch on DailyMotion

You can read the original story at Marie Claire UK.

The Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar has not been idle. There’s a bunch of interviews she’s been doing that will probably see the light during release week. She was also seen been interviewed by Katie Couric and on site at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum where she probably took a look at her own exhibit and claimed her Sparkly Guitar back.

Hello, Taylor Nation.

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who one day thought he should get into blogging, we’ve always remain impartial and… ok never mind. I’m always on the side of the Princess in Red and The Agency 🙂

Brittany and Mike Meadows have an amazing of reason to celebrate! On Friday, September 21, they welcomed their first child together: Sophie. Mike, who plays banjo, guitar and basically anything with strings for The Agency was a very dutiful father. He was there for the birth on Friday and flew Saturday to Las Vegas to perform with the Sparkly Dressed and the gang at the iHeartRadio Music Festival.

Update: Well, since Taste of Country opted to post the pic, I think Brittany and Mike won’t mind. Here’s Sophie Meadows 🙂

Begin Again: The new single from RED is now available on iTunes

(Source: Big Machine Records)

Hello, Taylor Nation.

Here at the Swift Agency, still one guy who’s right now listening to this song in never-ending repeat, we’re glad to report that Begin Again is available now on iTunes. I can’t speak for every corner of the world, but I found it on the Canadian store too 🙂

I’m not going to spoil lyrics or give you a play by play. However I will say, this a really great song that is showing her potential and a transition in her songwriting. The song is a ballad with really great hooks and plenty of fiddle and it does have twang. I think I do hear a banjo in there too.

Here’s the preview from Good Morning America this morning:

Watch on YouTube

On another note, I’ve taken too much time accepting this myself… but the Queen of Sparks has taken in four new backup singers. If you know me, you know I’m as hardcore a fan as they come of Elizabeth Huett, but please give the new backup singers a chance. I will give this a proper blog entry soon but for now here’s the Agency Profile: The Backup Singers page. Big shoutout to @_Jencita_ for the research.
