Taylor Swift's highly-anticipated third studio album will be released on October 27.
Aptly titled, 'Speak Now', the new album contains 14 tracks, all written solely by Taylor. The young star also co-produced the project with Nathan Chapman, and the first single from the new record is 'Mine' - an instant add to radio across the board.
Taylor says of Speak Now: "These songs are made up of words I didn't say when the moment was right in front of me. These songs are open letters. Each is written with a specific person in mind, telling them what I meant to tell them in person."
Taylor Swift is a Four-time Grammy award winner and the top-selling digital artist in music history. She had the #1 best-selling album in any genre of music in both 2009 and 2008 in the US. 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. Taylor has more than 7.4 million Facebook friends, more than 3.6 million followers on her Twitter account, and has had more than 273.8 million music plays on her MySpace page.

After becoming the highest-selling artist of 2008 and 2009, Taylor Swift returns in 2010 with her third album, having written all the material without outside help. Speak Now finds her sticking close to the country-pop hybrids that made her famous, although a full orchestra is also used on several songs.

I really liked this album. I actually wake up with the songs in my head. Taylor Swift has done well.
Taylor swifts third albumn, Speak Now, is a must have for Taylor Swift fans. It toppled the charts, sold over a million copies in America alone, & bet the famous Fearless album. All songs, written by her, tell a story, of life, love, and learning, and some would say it's as if reading the pages of her diary. Theres a variety of songs, some slow, with other fast paced ones that will have you up and dancing. If you like Taylor Swift as much as me, I'm sure you will enjoy it. Theres something for everyone on this amazing cd. It will blow you away.
The first thing that impressed me about the CD was that Taylor had written all of the songs herself. That to me indicated that I would be listening to a heartfelt, honest and deep CD and this is true. Fans of Taylor will not be disappointed as she stays true to her roots. 'Mine' is the first single released from the album and has had huge success and she will continue to have more success with this album. It's definitely one I am listening to again and again at the moment.
