She has a lot of feelings, Taylor Nation.

Here at the Swift Agency, still that guy who still shows up in a suit and dark glasses at concerts. we’ve been on a bit of a break lately. Actually, we’ve been working on another blog project of mine, not really Taylor-oriented. Writing is still how I prefer to spend my free time.

On that note, it seems the Princess in Red has been unable to stop herself and has been writing songs for what will eventually become the fifth album of her illustrious career. “The floodgates just opened the last couple weeks,” she tells Rolling Stone magazine. “I’m getting to that point where I’m irritating to be around because I’ll be with you for half the conversation and then the second half of the conversation I’m clearly editing the second verse of whatever I’m writing in my head.”

The Queen of Sparks has always kept a two-year distance between studio album releases. Taylor Swift, 2006. Fearless, 2008. Speak Now, 2010. Red, 2012. According to that, the fifth album should be released in the fall of 2014. But how different will it be?

“I think that the idea of having a different approach to every single one of my albums is so exciting to me,” she adds, hinting at this new album exploring unchartered territory. “I never want to make the same record twice. Why do it? What’s the point? It’s so overwhelming that when you’re starting a project there are such endless possibilities if you’re willing to evolve and experiment. If you’re willing to become a different version of yourself, you can really go anywhere with it. And that’s kind of where I am. The kind of the laboratory experimental stage of really catching onto a new thing that I’m liking.”

“I can’t tell you,” says the Enchantress.

And with a smile, she goes back to her writing… and I go back to mine 🙂
