Pop superstar, Taylor Swift, announced some big news during a Yahoo live stream today. The singer world premiered her new single “Shake It Off” for fans around the world.
Also, Taylor announced the name of her new album. During her live chat, she revealed that the music is heavily influenced by 80s pop. She appropriately titled the new record “1989” which also happens to be her birth year.
The album cover is a very retro looking polaroid with the title 1989 scrawled on it. Takes you back, doesn’t it? Actually, it reminds me a little of the cover of Vampire Weekend’s debut album.
The new album is available for pre-order and will be available everywhere on October 27.
Oh yeah, there’s a video that’s heavily inspired by candy coated 80s pop girls, Cyndi Lauper, Toni Basil.
And the song? “Shake It Off” is all about HATERZ. Because. You know. Taylor has NEVER EVER EVER mined that theme before! Heh. Also, I’m fairly certain she will never ever ever EVER be singing country music again….
