Taylor told Rolling Stone that he new album RED has a ‘dubstep inspired bass breakdown’ track: ‘I have so many playlists full of Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown. I love Wiz Khalifa.’ Wa MTV on Sept. 6 to see the premiere of ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ which Swift will perform at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards. I went through a few roller coasters [relationships].
Trying to chronicle each step of the way was challenging, because you go to some really dark places with the lyrics. Then in the next track, you’re talking about how amazing it is to meet somebody new.’ On RED, Taylor co-wrote with pop hitmakers such as Max Martin and Adele collaborator Dan Wilson. She wound up with nearly 40 potential songs:
‘I felt like an apprentice. They taught me so much about melodic sense, and they let me do what I love, which is the lyrics.. I know general things about love. How to treat people well, what you deserve and when to walk away. Other than that, love is a complete mystery, and that’s why I like to write about it.’
Result is Swift’s most eclectic set ever, ranging from ‘State of Grace,’ a howling, U2-style epic with reverb-drenched guitars, to a sweet acoustic duet with U.K. singer Ed Sheeran.
Taylor looked into buying a house near the Kennedy compound: ‘That would be so amazing.’ On her upcoming tour: ‘I really want to go out on the road in the spring. After I write a song, I always end up laying awake at night thinking, ‘What are the lighting cues going to be on this? How big is the pit going to be?’ I have been thinking of some big moments that are going to happen.’
