Taylor Swift gets personal

Four-time Grammy award winner Taylor Swift is the top-selling digital artist in music history, has had singles top both the Country and Pop radio charts, and had the #1 best-selling album in any genre of music the last two years running.

If that wasn't enough, this year, at the age of 20, she became the youngest artist in history, and the first female solo country artist ever, to win the music industry’s highest honor, the Grammy Award for Album of the Year as well as bringing home the awards for Country Album of the Year, Best Country Song, and Best Country Female Vocal Performance!

Now, Taylor Swift’s multitudes of fan can expect a new musical follow-up with her highly-anticipated third studio album which will be released worldwide on October 25th. Taylor herself announced the news during a recent web chat with her fans and the collection promises to be a personal look-see into the heart of the pop-star.

Entitled "Speak Now," the album will be released on Big Machine Records and contains 14 tracks, all written solely by Taylor. Taylor co-produced the project with Nathan Chapman, and the first single from the new record, “Mine,” will be released on August 16th.

“Saying the right thing at the right moment is so crucial that most of us start to hesitate, for fear of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. But lately what I've begun to fear more than that is letting the moment pass without saying anything,” Taylor says of the very personal collection that is Speak Now.

“These songs are made up of words I didn't say when the moment was right in front of me," she continues. "These songs are open letters. Each is written with a specific person in mind, telling them what I meant to tell them in person.”

Starting on August 20th, Speak Now will be available for special pre-sale on the site
