If you weren't already excited for Taylor Swift's new album, get pumped, because, in a new interview with an outlet in Germany, she said that this record is definitely more political than the music she's made in the past.
"I definitely think there are political undertones in the new music I made," she said, according to translations. "I'm not planning to stop encouraging young people to vote and to try to get them to talk about what's going on in our country. I think that's one of the most important things I could do."
Taylor has been pretty quiet about her political views in the past, famously not endorsing a candidate during the 2016 presidential elections. That changed during the 2018 midterms when she posted a lengthy Instagram caption about who she was voting for in Tennessee.
"In the past, I've been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country," she wrote.
"I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening, and prevalent."
So it looks like she's not getting quiet about her opinions anytime soon, which is amazing. BRB, refreshing my TS7 countdown RTFN.
