The 'Sweeter Than Fiction' singer says that the follow-up to Grammy Awards-nominated 'Red' album will feature songs about her stories.
Taylor Swift has revealed more details about her fifth album, which is currently in the works. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, she said that the highly-anticipated project would feature songs about her own stories.
"Describing it is difficult. At the core of what I do, it's always going to revolve around a confessional storyline and filling my fans in on what my life has actually been," the 24-year-old pop/country superstar told the site.
"It's become this lifeline between me and my friends and they know that no matter what they read in some magazine, they're going to hear the actual accounting of it when the album comes out," she continued. "I've always written songs for the same reason - to sort through my emotions. As I grow up, the lessons I learn in love and relationships and how we treat each other are hopefully maturing - hopefully."
In another interview, the "22" hitmaker who has worked with the likes of Fun.'s Jack Antonoff and Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody in the past told Billboard earlier this month that she's open to collaborating with other musicians for her upcoming album. "I'm really loving collaboration right now," said Swift.
"I see it as a bit of an apprenticeship. I want to be around people who love writing songs and have done it for years. Every time I'm in a studio I'm learning, like how to build a drum track, and getting a new perspective on things. It's so thrilling to keep learning on your fifth album," she added.
Swift's next record will serve as the follow-up to 2012's "Red". The album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard 200 and stayed atop the chart for several weeks. It's currently up for Best Country Album award and the coveted Album of the Year award at the upcoming Grammys.
