Country and mainstream crossover
superstar Taylor Swift drops her third studio album Speak Now on 25 October.
The follow up to the mega huge Fearless already has a smash single on the radio
called Mine and is poised for a strong sales debut just in time for holiday shopping.
Taylor has said she has been
working on writing the material since Fearless in 2008, and the time and effort
she has put in shows.
She has a gift for turning key
moments in her life, both good and bad, into pop tunes that make sense and that
listeners can relate to. The track Innocent is based on her MTV Video Music
Awards run-in with Kanye West. The first single Mine is based on remembering a
relationship that felt like it would last forever.
Taylor wrote the entire album on
her own. All 14 tracks will speak to or hit home to someone. From the ballads
to the fun track Better Than Revenge, Taylor Swift has churned out another hit
album that would make a great stocking stuffer.
