Shortly before her live "Red" single performance at the just concluded CMT Music Awards in Nashville, country music superstar Taylor Swift disclosed in a backstage interview that she's just about ready to start working on her follow-up to her Billboard chart-topping album "Red". That project will then become the 23-year-old entertainer's fifth studio album.
"It's starting, the anxiety is starting, and when the anxiety starts, the writing happens right afterwards usually," Swift revealed. Describing her songwriting process, she continued, "I like to write for two years before I finish an album," explaining further that "whatever I write the first year is going to get thrown away because I'm going to sound [like what I've done before.]."
Fans of the "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer may think it's still quite early for Swift to be already thinking of her next album, considering her album "Red" hasn't even run its full course yet. Swift even released a new single yet again from the LP, premiering an adorable music video of "Everything Has Changed" featuring her tour partner Ed Sheeran.
Apart from her CMT Music Awards performance, Swift is also coming off a memorable duet with Mick Jagger on The Rolling Stones' Chicago concert. The young country-pop star revealed the collaboration was "everything you think it would be but better," adding, "They handwrite notes thanking you for being there...you get pictures with them."
