The 20-year-old phenom will follow up her Grammy-winning Fearless with Speak Now, which will be released October 25. Swift made the announcement in a live web chat Tuesday afternoon in which she explained the title “pertains to the album as a concept, and as an entire theme of the record, more than I can even tell you.” First single “Mine,” which will be out in mid-August, sounds like it will stick closely to the Taylor Swift template: “[It’s about] my tendency to run from love. It’s a recent tendency. Every example of love in my life has ended in goodbye. The song is about finding the exception to that.”
Swift explained that she’s been writing nonstop since Fearless was released: “… In the past two years I’ve experienced a lot of things that I’ve been dying to write about. A lot of things that I’ve wanted to say in the moment that I didn’t… Track by track, each song is a different confession to a different person.” We’ll have to wait for the tracklist to see if “Dear Kanye (Imma Finish Right Now)” makes the cut.
