Taylor Swift shared that she’s already starting the writing process for her fifth album.
The 23-year-old singer, who is currently in tour to promote her fourth album Red, revealed that it takes her about two years to write songs for an album, so she’s already working her way to her next album.
At the backstage of the CMA Music Festival in Nashville on Thursday, Swift told reporters that her creative juices has started to pour. She said: “It’s starting. All the anxiety is starting. When the anxiety starts, the writing happens right after, usually.”
This comes less than eight months after the release of her fourth studio album, Red, but Swift says she learned from past albums that it takes her about two years to write the songs. She explained: “Whatever I write in the first year is going to get thrown away. I’m going to like it, but it’s going to sound like the last record. The second year usually sounds like the next project.”
Swift continued: “Making each album sound different from the previous one is important. I think you need to change up your influences. I think you need to be inspired by different things than you were inspired by before.”
