Taylor Swift Ready for ‘Recording and Obsessing Over Next Album’ After Speak Now Tour Ends
Taylor Swift is a workaholic. Right now, she's on the road on her Speak Now Tour, which runs through November in North America and has been going full speed for a few months now -- but the 'Love Story' singer wouldn't have it any other way. In a new interview with The Tennessean, Swift dishes that while she loves touring, she's really looking forward to making a new album for her devoted fans.
"Actually, I don’t know what I’m going to do when I’m not on this tour anymore," Swift admits. "I think I’m so in love with this tour that I just I love being on it. I love being a part of it. I love the schedule. I love the crowds. I love the feeling you get when you walk offstage and it was a good show."
Swift should love this tour. In the past few months, she's been able to play multiple back-to-back sold out shows in the same cities, with some -- like Los Angeles -- getting four-night runs. The 21-year-old superstar says that "shows a lot of dedication when a city has created four sold-out shows for us. It means a lot."
However, she would be just as happy in the studio as she is on the stage. "Of course, I’ll move on to the next thing after this tour’s over, and that will probably be overdrive recording and obsessing over my next album," Swift reveals. "That whole process kind of works naturally in a two-year phase. When you’re creating an album for two years and you’re finally ready to put it out, it’s all you think about. Hopefully we’ll get there, and there will be plenty to do at the end of this tour. There will be plenty of things to plan for, and then we continue in Australia in February, so I won’t have to say goodbye to it completely."
Taylor Swift's Speak Now Tour continues tonight, September 16, in her hometown of Nashville. She will close up shop in New York on November 22 before re-opening in Perth, Australia on March 2.
