The 'Blank Space' hitmaker decided to skip the patriotic bash this year because she wanted to focus more on her studio session, new romance and family.
Taylor Swift is serious about her decision to step out of the spotlight this year. Skipping annual 4th of July bash was apparently one of her plans to keep it low. The singer's decision to call the party off wasn't without reasons, though. She was reportedly too busy working on new music, focusing on her budding romance with Joe Alwyn and spending quality time with her family.
"[Taylor] really meant it when she said she didn't want to be seen or heard from much for the rest of 2017 after her Super Bowl weekend performance," a source told HollywoodLife.com. "She is hard at work on new album, working on her relationship [with Joe] and spending time with family and just relaxing as much as she possibly can before she starts to ramp up everything again in early 2018. So the hoopla surrounding her Fourth of July party was something she didn't want this year."
However, Taylor would make a grand comeback next year to make up all the things she had missed this year. She would release new music and "have future bashes to make up for not going all out this year" without question.
As previously reported, Taylor has been hitting the studio a lot for the past few months to work on the follow-up to "1989". A source shared, "Taylor has been writing and recording her new album in Nashville for the last several months. She has been working on it around the clock and will be making an announcement soon. She is really excited about her new music and can't wait to share it with her fans." The 27-year-old songstress was said to be working on her new effort with Jack Antonoff, Ryan Adams and Dashboard Confessional's lead singer Chris Carrabba.
