Hello Taylor Nation,
Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s realize that when he has a headache he starts blogging and suddenly he’s feeling better, we’re trying to bring you interviews that stray away from the usual formulaic questions. Forever and always, it’s the Princess in Red who makes the interview interesting.
According to Australia’s newspaper, the Herald Sun, the Queen of Sparks searched the best collaborators both in production and songwriting for Red.
”I decided I need to learn more and as a 22-year-old musician,” said the Princess in Red. “I wanted to go and do almost like an apprenticeship with Max Martin and Shellback and Ed Sheeran and (Snow Patrol’s) Gary Lightbody.”
It would be Ed who would introduce T-Swizzle to the Snow Patrol frontman. “Ed and I had hung out with my friends having jam sessions and singing Snow Patrol songs and he knew I was a huge fan,” she told the Herald Sun. “Then one day he asks if his friend Gary could come by and Gary Lightbody came by and listened to the song Ed and I had written and he said he wanted to work on the record too. And then I passed out.”
You can read the full interview at the Herald Sun.
Here’s the Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar filming a Behind The Scenes look at the Begin Again video for OFF.tv in Paris, France.
Update! The video has been removed and I can’t find a replacement. I’ll put up a video when I find one.
By the way, the other day I was asked the name of the lead actor in Begin Again and it’s a bit hard to find. He’s the actor and model Vladimir Perrin. The music video was directed by Philip Andelman.
The Enchantress will attend and perform at the 2012 ARIA Awards on Thursday, November 29. She will present one of the top awards of the night.
