The 'Speak Now' singer makes live performances in the Big Apple during an intimate concert which was broadcast as a live streaming event.
Taylor Swift is excited to share her new music with fans as she took the stage to celebrate the release of her latest album "Speak Now". The country music singer invited some of her friends from throughout the world to spend quality time together on October 25 in New York. Taking place at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan, the gig was a live streaming event broadcast on various online platforms of MTV.
Wearing a cute little yellow dress, Swift strapped her guitar and began to entertain the attendees, who were the winners of Win With Taylor online contest, with such songs as "Mine", "Back to December" and title track of the album. She also talked about inspirations behind every song she wrote in it.
"I think for me, Speak Now was inspired by the last two years of my life. You can learn a lot of lessons in two years. You have all these revelations, and you figure out that all these things are happening in your life," the country music singer said.
"Writing songs kind of helps me make sense of things, especially love and relationships and growing up and trying to be 20 the right way. All of that really came into play on Speak Now. I just hope it means something to y'all's life because it was really a fun process to make this record."
"Speak Now" has already had two charting singles ahead of its release. Lead single "Mine" peaked at No. 3 on Billboard Hot 100 and then the title track debuted at No. 6 on the U.S. singles chart. The album itself is predicted to arrive on Hot 200 with big opening number around 650,000 - 700,000 copies and thus bow at No. 1 on the chart.
