TAYLOR SWIFT TALKS ABOUT SIGNING WITH FADED RECORDS + NEW MUSIC ON Z100


Taylor Swift is definitely one of the strongest and one of the most talented pop stars in the music industry. Her ability to compose melodically strong music and write lyrics that paints a strong metaphorical picture makes her stand out from the rest in this cutthroat industry. Despite being one of the most formidable pop stars, she faced her first challenge in 2016 when she released ‘Beautifully Disturbed’. Although the album received critical acclaim from both the critics and fans alike, it fell short of Taylor’s commercial potential. Still, despite being in her “flop era”, as some fans would call it, the album still managed to debut at #1 with over 600,000 copies sold, and ended up being certified Platinum.

However, Taylor managed to rise triumphantly when she released a brand new single ‘Eden’, which saw a peak of #1, giving Taylor her third #1. Following the massively successful campaign from her lead single ‘Eden’, which saw a massive comeback for her, Taylor suddenly vanished from the music scene. Although there were rumors of Taylor making a decision to take time off circling across the web, many didn't know where Taylor went. During this period, her album (The Way I Used To Think We Were) was leaked to the media, with the two main highlights being ‘Touch and Go’ and the Lorde collaboration ‘Crosses to Bear’.

After disappearing from the music scene for over a year, Taylor Swift is made a surprise appearance on Z100 and revealed that she has signed with Faded Records. She also revealed during her interview that new music is coming soon enough as well. This would definitely hype up the fans for her forthcoming release, which is expected to come soon enough.

Her disappearance for almost a year
Honestly, it’s really a therapeutic experience for me, to just take a step back and recollect myself. A lot was going through my mind last year, and a number of factors made things worse for me. So I made the decision to go to somewhere secluded where no one would know who I am. I know that it might have been kinda selfish of me to do something like this, but I really needed it because I felt like I was losing myself. I loved ‘Eden’ a lot though and if given the opportunity, I would release it again and promote it now. Same goes with the album as well. It’s a shame that it got leaked but what has happened has already happened. I guess now I can only move forward and look into the future. Hopefully the fans are as excited as I am!

Signing with Faded Records
It was funny because I was actually thinking about coming back to the music scene again as I thought it was time to make a comeback, when their team reached out to me. They expressed their interest in managing me as an artist. Before I signed with them, I got the chance to talk to the team at Faded Records and they have been extremely supportive of me. I even remember the CEO of Faded Records (Jonathan) meeting me in person, telling me that they support me no matter what music I decide to put forth in the future. It’s really nice to have that sense of support and trust again to be honest. That was the reason why I made the decision to sign on Faded Records and be part of their artist roster.

Working on brand new music

Despite being in a hiatus, I’m always working on new music because creating music has always been a therapeutic output for me. Whenever I have a burst of inspiration, I would record it or I would write it down so that I won’t forget it. Also, I find the process of creating new music extremely fascinating because sometimes I create melodies and lyrics on my piano or on my guitar, and slowly build the structure of the song as I go on. That’s definitely the most organic way for me. But sometimes, some of the producers I work with would show their own beats and I would use that as a base, and work around it to create a finalized song. That’s another way I go about it. Personally, I think that although both of these methods work differently, it definitely helps impact how I work on a record because it helps me grow as an artist and as a songwriter.

Her main inspirations lately
I’ve been listening to a lot of different artists in preparation for this forthcoming record actually. One of my main inspirations lately is also a close friend of mine, Lorde, mainly because she’s bold in what she does musically. She isn’t afraid of exploring and diving into different genres of music and I think that’s amazing to be honest. Another main inspiration of mine lately is Britney because she’s really persistent and doesn’t give up no matter the circumstances. I mean, she went through so many disposed album cycles and has finally come out triumphantly. Plus, her music is pretty amazing too!

Her current love life
Well, I haven’t been seeing anyone yet because after everything that has happened, I decided to focus on myself first. Because if I’m not happy deep down inside, even if I happen to find a “perfect” boyfriend, I would not be happy at all. That’s also one of the reasons why I decided to take a year long hiatus, so that I could just find myself again. Would I want to find new love in the future? Yes! But for now, I’m fine being single for now (Laughs).
