As I write this, Taylor Swift is on Yahoo streaming a live interview , answering questions from fans worldwide, but what do I care? I don’t because the two pieces of information I want I have:
1. The release of any album is in the works (big shocker)
2. The first single will be released soon
3. She is going to play it for us.
Which Taylor did and it is killer. Another collaboration with Dr. Martin, “Shake It Off” is the catchiest thing she’s ever done, gorgeous fluff… except for one misstep, a spoken word portion which doesn’t match the one on “We Are Never Getting Back Together”. Otherwise, it is so awesome , the living breathing embodiment of awesomeness. Catchier than it is humanly possible for a song, I taped it onto my cell and I can’t still stop listening to it. So bubblelicisious it sticks to your fingers and so jumpy you can’t stop moving to it.
There is nobody like Taylor and this will start at number one in the charts and it will never never come down.
I found the video and watch it below and you can buy the newbie because “there’s no sale like a presale” as the funny girl noted , on taylorswift.com. Though I tried to buy it and something got screwed up somewhere or the other. The album drops October 27. A Monday for some weird reason. Taylor claims it is inspired by late 1980s pop but let’s be honest, Taylor always sounds like Taylor. here is the album cover
What else? The live stream is over and I give it an “A” and hope she plays Jingle Ball again this year.
