Taylor Swift Still Hard at Work on New Album

At the end of last year, we reported that Taylor Swift was getting to work writing for her 2012 record, a follow-up to her massively successful ‘Speak Now.’ The October 2010 release grew into the international phenomenon that was her Speak Now World Tour, sparking a series of sold out shows and all-star collaborations. And while we haven’t heard much in the past few months as far as album details, like a title or a release date, Swift did take to Twitter Wednesday night (April 11) to post a photo of her in a pair of headphones playing guitar in the studio.

“Recording the next album. So happy,” the starlet wrote. While Swift’s camp has remained pretty hush-hush on the specific details of the upcoming project, the ‘Ours’ singer has hinted at some of the material fans can expect to her from her this time around. Speaking to MTV, she said, ”So far, I’ve been writing so much in the last year and the label keeps telling me, ‘All right, we’re finished; all right, we’re satisfied; OK, this is done now.’ And then I just keep writing and I keep turning it in in different versions.”

Speaking to the theme of the new record, she dished, “I think that love is always going to be a huge theme in what I write about just because there are no two similar relationships, there are no two times that you feel love the same way or hurt the same way or [feel] rejection [in] the same way. It’s all different and I’m fascinated by that. I really love to go back to human interaction and the way we make each other feel. But that at 22 is different than it was at 18 or 19 when I made my last album and 16 and 17 when I made ‘Fearless.’ As you grow, you change in the way you process emotion.”

In her February Vogue cover story, Swift said her fourth studio record will delve into “this earth-shattering, not recent, but absolute crash-and-burn heartbreak” she experienced. Could it be the scars of ex-beaus John Mayer or Jake Gyllenhaal?

While Swift fans — sorry, Swifties — are still waiting on pins and needles to hear some concrete details about this record and when they can get it in their hands and on their iPods, they can rest assured knowing their favorite country celeb is hitting the studio and the “record” button.
