Taylor Swift, an American singer-songwriter, is scheduled to release her newest album 1989 on Oct. 27 later this year. This will be the fifth studio album by the singer and her lead single "Shake It Off" will be included in the album.
Swift was already in the songwriting process for six months as of October 2013 last year and the month after that, she had already known which songs she wanted to include in the album. In February this year, she confirmed that she was once again working with Max Martin and Shellback, whom she had already collaborated with in writing three songs on her album Red.
Swift had revealed the title of her album during a global live stream which aired on Aug. 18, and it would seem that the title of the album correlates a lot to the year she was born as well as the music that rocked the music charts.
1989 will include 13 songs and will get a Deluxe Edition which includes three bonus tracks as well as three of Taylor's songwriting voice memos. The Deluxe Edition will only be available at Target.
A number of tracks have also been confirmed to be included in the album. Those songs are "All You Had to Do Was Stay," "Bad Blood," "I Know Places," "I Wish You Would," "Out of the Woods," "Style," "Wildest Dreams," and of course, her hit lead single "Shake It Off."
Swift has been mostly known for creating songs about her ex-boyfriends but "Shake It Off" was different. Though the lyrics are pretty straightforward, Taylor explained that she has been subjected to a lot of criticism.
"In the last couple of years I've had to come to terms with the fact that anyone can say anything about me and call TMZ or Radar Online or something, and it will be an international headline," she told The Guardian.
"You can either go crazy and let it make you bitter and make you not trust people, and become really secluded or rebellious against the whole system. Or you can just shake it off and figure that as long as you're having more fun than anyone else, what does it matter what anyone else thinks?" she added.
