Taylor Swift - 1989

Taylor Swift - 1989

So unless you have been living under a rock for the past few months you will know that Taylor Swift has just released a new album called 1989 that has already gone to number 1 on iTunes. 

I've been a fan of Taylor Swift since I first heard the song Love Story at the age of 12. And 6 years on and I still love her music just as much. I think that she is an incredibly talented songwriter and singer and performer (I was lucky enough to see her Red Tour!). She has a song for about every single emotion a growing teenage girl can feel and there where times when I was younger where I would hide in my room listening to her songs on my nano and her lyrics would speak to me like no other artist could.

Her music has changed a bit since her first few albums and she's slowly moving away from country. And while I do still love country Taylor I feel that as her music matures I'm also growing up with her. Her last album Red was quite different to her typical country songs but for me it was my absolute all time favourite album. Every single song was so beautifully written and to me it was just perfect.

1989 is another incredible album by Taylor Swift. There are some song you can dance to, songs to sing to and songs to cry to. She takes you on this emotional roller-coaster through the album as she pours her heart and so much emotion into every song. So if you think this might be your kind of music and you haven't checked it out yet then I really can't recommend this enough.

My favourite songs from 1989:
Blank Space
Out Of The Woods
Wildest Dreams
You Are In Love
Shake It Off
This Love

Also if you buy the Deluxe album you can hear a few voice memos of how Taylor begins to write a few of the different songs. I think it is so cool to hear such a talented artist write their music and then go back and listen to the completed song. Obviously this is not a sponsored post but I just wanted to talk about my favourite artists new album. 

Let me know in the comment below what you think of the album and what your favourite songs are :) xx

P.S. Happy Halloween everyone :D
