Taylor Swift's Red tour is going strong all summer long, with the next stop coming up in Philadelphia on July 19 and 20. The tour is set to run through September 21 in Nashville, but despite having several months on the road still ahead of her, Swift is plotting her Red follow up album. At a tour stop in New Jersey last weekend, Swift told Rolling Stone that the "floodgates" have opened for new music.
"The floodgates just opened the last couple weeks," she told the magazine. "I'm getting to that point where I'm irritating to be around because I'll be with you for half the conversation and then the second half of the conversation I'm clearly editing the second verse of whatever I'm writing in my head."
Just as she did with Red, Swift plans to collaborate with a number of different producers and artists on her next album. However, that doesn't mean she will do a Red repeat.
"I think that the idea of having a different approach to every single one of my albums is so exciting to me," the singer/songwriter explained. "I never want to make the same record twice. Why do it? What's the point? It's so overwhelming that when you're starting a project there are such endless possibilities if you're willing to evolve and experiment. If you're willing to become a different version of yourself, you can really go anywhere with it. And that's kind of where I am. The kind of the laboratory experimental stage of really catching onto a new thing that I'm liking."
