Taylor Swift to present top gongs at the ARIA’s
SUCCESS may be the best revenge for heartbreak but Taylor Swift’s lovelorn anthems have created an elite fan club of the world’s top songwriters.
Swift, who is in Australia to perform at the ARIA awards on Thursday, said she sought out the world’s hitmakers to help her compose the songs for her multi-platinum smash record Red.
But it turned out they were already lining up to work with her, including Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody and Swedish legend Max Martin.
One of the first to approach her for a studio session was British balladeer Ed Sheeran, who has also penned songs for One Direction’s two records.
”I decided I need to learn more and as a 22-year-old musician, I wanted to go and do almost like an apprenticeship with Max Martin and Shellback and Ed Sheeran and (Snow Patrol’s) Gary Lightbody,” she said.
