Faces & names: Swift announces her first official pop album
During a worldwide live stream on Monday, Taylor Swift announced that she’s releasing her first official pop album, titled “1989,” on Oct. 27 and debuted a new song, “Shake it Off.”
“I woke up not wanting but needing to make a new style of music,” said the songstress.
The singer had been dropping plenty of hints via Twitter before Monday’s Yahoo/ABC live stream in New York, and went so far as to say that “1989 is the “favorite album I’ve ever made.”
While previous songs from Swift have been considered pop, her albums still qualified for honors such as Country Music Awards. She also won titles such as “top country artist” at the Billboard Music Awards and several countryGrammys.
