Taylor was interviewed by HITS Daily Double. She talked about making a pop album, working with Max Martin and Imogen Heap, songwriting and more. You can read the full interview below!
How does it feel to be on the verge of your self-described first pop album? Are you afraid that having made the statement, it’s a whole other scale of judgment?
I’m excited and thrilled and filled with more energy than I know what to do with! There is something so electric about getting to make the record that you want exactly the way you want it.
This is a record where I got to go exactly where I thought each song needed to be, and we didn’t think about anything except that. There were no considerations other than the music—and that was great.|
Were you surprised by some of the responses to your announcement? Some of the outcry about you leaving the format seemed to miss the point.
I don’t really think people were surprised I made a pop album; I think they were surprised I was honest about it.
