People need to keep sending encouraging and supportive messages to @swiftiebatch Hopefully when she’s back from hospital she will see that she has a network of support and that she can rely on us. Supporting fellow fans is, to me, the most important part of being a Swiftie.
I’d like to think that every one of my followers will send a message or show their support by reblogging.
One of the things you can expect is that I’m really trying to challenge myself in every single way possible to make music that doesn’t sound like music I’ve made before, when you get into the album there are a lot of late eighties sounds and vocal stylings and production elements. We were really just playing around with this album and didn’t limit ourselves, what ended up happening was we made an album that really sounds like an album, it’s really sonically cohesive, and I’m really proud of it. Ed has heard a lot of the songs on the album but he hadn’t heard the first single, because the time that I was going to play it for him it was the day that ‘Sing’ had just come out’. I said, ‘no, we’re not making this about my music today, it’s all about ‘Sing’ today’, so now he’s finally heard it alongside the rest of the world, he has heard a lot of the new album, he’s got the inside scoop. I doubt he’ll tell though!
It wasn’t a conscious decision for me to make a ‘pop’ record at first, but as I started writing more and experiencing all these different things, I realized that the songs I’d written in the first sort of year or so after Red was released, I’d outgrown. For me, I feel like there’s a period in-between albums where I start to become aware that the sound is changing and it stops becoming a continuation of the old record and evolves into a completely new project. With 1989, it was around this point that I sort of addressed the fact that the material I was just obsessed with, the songs I couldn’t not have on the record, well they had this really signature sound.. and so we just decided that 1989 would be my first official genre-stamped ‘pop’ album.
