- The new LP is titled 1989 and will drop Oct. 27 via Big Machine.
- That’s the Polaroid-inspired album art up above.
- There will also be a deluxe edition of the album including three bonus tracks — all voice memos recorded to Swift’s phone that turned into actual songs.
- Check out Billboard’s review of 1989′s Max Martin-produced lead single “Shake It Off” here. The team that created I Knew You Were Trouble and We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together. Their goal, she said, was to created something that sounded “like nothing like anything I had done.”
- “Shake It Off” has already topped Billboard’s Trending 140.
- Taylor revealed that she’s been working on the new album for the past two years. “I woke up every single day that I was recording this album not wanting but needing to make a new style of music. What ended up happening was that we made the most sonically cohesive album I’ve ever made – my favorite album I’ve ever made”
- The idea, Taylor revealed, was to “get a huge group of professional dancers and throw me into the middle of them and see what happens.”
- This will be her “first documented, official pop album,”
