Fans will be happy to know that Taylor Swift is progressing nicely with her fourth studio record. The pop star tells the Hollywood Reporter she’s been pumping out plenty of new material in preparation for her next project.
“I’ve written 25 songs so far, so it’s coming along really well,” the 21-year-old singer revealed during an interview Tuesday.
“I’ve been writing a lot, and I like to take two years to make a record,” Taylor says of her follow up to 2010’s “Speak Now,” which she notes is “looking really great.”
“We’re at the end of year one and I still have a year left to go write,” Swift says. Taylor’s next effort could be released in the fall of 2012, considering the drop dates of her three previous albums.
Her first album, “Taylor Swift,” made its debut on October 24, 2006, followed by sophomore album “Fearless” two years later, on November 11, 2008. “Speak Now” hit stores on October 25, 2010.
The singer is currently on her “Speak Now” world tour, plus, she's busy promoting her new scent, Wonderstruck. Where does she find the time?
