Taylor Swift’s 1989 album is out. The singer-songwriter said that the album booklet includes secret messages.
It turns out the secret messages are like a short story.
When Swift announced her transition from country to pop music, people worried if she’d be able to pull it off. However, she was able to pull off “Shake It Off.”
Now, critics are saying her album 1989 is her best album to date. Rolling Stone’s Rob Sheffield writes she is extreme, and great.
Deeply weird, feverishly emotional, wildly enthusiastic, 1989 sounds exactly like Taylor Swift, even when it sounds like nothing she’s ever tried before. And yes, she takes it to extremes. Are you surprised? This is Taylor Swift, remember? Extremes are where she starts out.
Last week, the singer opened up to E! News about what inspired this change.
I was gravitating towards those pop sensibilities with my last album. And when people would ask me, what’s your favorite song off of Red…I’d always say, ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ was my favorite. And I started kind of thinking about that and going, ‘All right. I learned a lot when I was making Red. I collaborated with a lot of people. And I kind of learned who I wanted to go back to, and those collaborations were all with the pop producers and writers that I had been working with.
I was just kind of following a natural inclination as a songwriter, and as I got further in, I just realized this isn’t gonna be something where I have a few pop songs on this album. This is a full pop album. It’s sonically cohesive. It has its own sound and I couldn’t be happier about it.
