With her new album, RED hitting Target, it’s not wonder Taylor Swift covers the latest issue of Billboard magazine.
In true Taylor Swift fashion, the singer posed with her guitar for the Brian Doben shoot.
Check out what Swift had to say to Billboard below!
On RED’s sound:
“I’m 22. I’m all over the place, so my record is all over the place. All these emotions are very loud and very different. At one end of the spectrum you have ‘Sad Beautiful Tragic,’ which is a breakup song in the form of a funeral march, and you also have ‘Never Ever Getting Back Together’ again, which is a breakup song in the form of a parade.”
On not playing her music before it’s officially released:
“We’re really paranoid, knock on wood, about a leak. So we don’t even go near a song that hasn’t been released. We don’t even practice them.”
On methods taken to achieve big sales:
“The first step was to look at where we wanted the record to go. A worldwide release, really – we made that a priority. To me, the answer to every question of ‘Will you do this to promote the album?’ was ‘yes.’ My team has come up with brilliant ways to market this record, to expand the retail footprint. Selling an album in Walgreens, selling it at Papa John’s – these are all different ways that have so far been unexplored, so we’ll see what happens.”
