Taylor Swift is still riding the success of singles “Red” and “Everything Has Changed,” but that hasn’t stopped her thoughts from drifting toward her next album and the songwriting process.
“The floodgates just opened the last couple weeks,” she tells Rolling Stone. “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 album will be Swift’s fifth, and one she promises will be totally new.
“I think that the idea of having a different approach to every single one of my albums is so exciting to me,” she said. “I never want to make the same record twice. Why do it? What’s the point?”
“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.”
