The singer-songwriter announced plans for a new, upcoming, ‘80s inspired album, which will be called 1989—the year Swift was born.
The new album will be Swift’s first official venture into pop music. She also shared a brand new single, which will be included in the new record.
New Style, New Music
Swift made the announcement during a live stream hosted by Yahoo! on Monday, August 18. During the online event, Taylor dropped the news while surrounded by select fans, saying that in the two years following the release of her “Red” album, the singer-songwriter had grown and changed in a way that made it necessary for her to change her style of music—changes that reflects the transitions in her personal life.
"I woke up every single day that I was making this record, not wanting but needing to make a new style of music than what I had ever made before," the country superstar said. "Essentially what ended up happening is we made the most sonically cohesive album I've ever made. I made my favorite album I've ever made."
The new album, and the leaning towards pop music, was inspired by "a lot of late '80s pop," Swift said when asked about the songs for "1989.” She said she loved "the chances they were taking" in that era.
"I loved how bold it was," she said of the late 1980s music scene. "I loved how ahead of its time it was, so being inspired by that, I started delving into the late '80s and what that period of time actually meant."
Swift added that it was a time of "limitless potential and the idea that you can do what you want, be who you want, wear what you want and love who you want, and you get to decide where your life is going."
‘Shake It Off’
Swift also shared a new single, “Shake It Off,” which she danced to during the livestream. The new song is not seen as a typical Swift song, but more of a response to the false rumors and attacks haters are constantly throwing her way.
“People can say whatever they want about us, at any time … the only thing we can control is our reaction to it,” Swift said, saying that she chose to ‘Shake It Off.’
“The players gonna play play play play play / The haters gonna hate hate hate hate / I’m just gonna shake it off,” sings part of the chorus.
1989, named after Swift’s birth year, will hit stores on October 27. Pre-orders are available now at www.taylorswift.com.
