Taylor Swift’s new album will be more pop and less country.
Scott Borchetta of Big Machine Records, told Rolling Stone: “Taylor fans are going to love it. Will country stations play a complete pop song just because it’s her? No. But when she comes to town, her friends at country radio will come and see her.”
Borchetta also said that Max Martin who produced albums for Britney Spears, N’SYNC, and Christina Aguilera is also teaming up with the “We Are Never Getting Back Together” singer on her upcoming album.
The shift to pop should not be surprising: her last effort Red featured “I Knew You Were Trouble” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” which peaked at No. 2 and No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, respectively, but neither song was what one would consider country music.
Ed Sheeren recently told Perez Hilton about Swift’s new album, “”She has to evolve. If she makes another Red everyone will be like, ‘It sounds like Red.’ But she’s evolved and I think it’s a positive step.”
Swift cooked with Ina Garten for a feature for the July/August issue of Food Network Magazine, hitting newsstands on June 24.
The 24-year-old singer, along with her brother Austin, 22, and mom Andrea, met up with Barefoot Contessa host Ina Garten at her home in the Hampton to cook a mustard-roasted fish and a Pavlova.
Garten told Swift a story about a big television star who once came to her house but didn’t eat anything. She then offered the woman a sip of a whiskey sour, and the actress downed the whole drink and asked for another.
“Oh, I’ve never had a whiskey sour,” Swift said.
“I have some in my refrigerator!” Garten replied.
“Hey, Andrea,” Taylor calls to her mom. “Come over here. We’re day-drinking!”
Garten and Swift also bonded overing have the same pet peeve: people who don’t eat.
“I’ll cook for these boys, and they’ll be like, ‘I’m on a diet,'” Swift complained. “I’m like, ‘I can’t hang out with you.'”
