The “Shake It Off” hitmaker’s post included a photo of her rocking a red hat and looking great, along with a longer message about the upcoming album.
“I’ve always said that the world is a different place for the heartbroken,” Swift explained. “It moves on a different axis, at a different speed. Time skips backwards and forwards fleetingly. The heartbroken might go through thousands of micro-emotions a day trying to figure out how to get through it without picking up the phone to hear that old familiar voice.”
“In the land of heartbreak, moments of strength, independence, and devil-may-care rebellion are intricately woven together with grief, paralyzing vulnerability and hopelessness,” she added. “Imagining your future might always take you on a detour back to the past. And this is all to say, that the next album I’ll be releasing is my version of Red.”
“Musically and lyrically, Red resembled a heartbroken person,” the “Me!” hitmaker continued. “It was all over the place, a fractured mosaic of feelings that somehow all fit together in the end. Happy, free, confused, lonely, devastated, euphoric, wild, and tortured by memories past.”
Taylor said she ended up going into the studio and “experimented with different sounds and collaborators.” and the result was healing.
“And I’m not sure if it was pouring my thoughts into this album, hearing thousands of your voices sing the lyrics back to me in passionate solidarity, or if it was simply time, but something was healed along the way,” the superstar explained.
We can hardly wait!
