Taylor Swift Stands Tall On 'Billboard' Cover

Billboard (October 27, 2012), Taylor Swift

Her new studio album 'Red' blazes into retailers today and is expected to ignite the charts on fire, so it should comes as no surprise that Taylor Swift is featured on the cover of this week's issue of Billboard magazine.

In the issue, the "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" singer talks about the new album, her fear of the album leaking ahead of its release date and her marketing plans to hit the one million mark again. Peep quotes from her interview beneath:

On Her New Album, 'Red':
"I'm 22. I'm all over the place, so my record is all over the place. All these emotions are very loud and very different. At one end of the spectrum you have 'Sad Beautiful Tragic,' which is a breakup song in the form of a funeral march, and you also have 'Never Ever Getting Back Together' again, which is a breakup song in the form of a parade."

On Her Fears of the Album Leaking:
"We're really paranoid, knock on wood, about a leak. So we don't even go near a song that hasn't been released. We don't even practice them."

On Her Marketing Efforts For the Album:
"The first step was to look at where we wanted the record to go. A worldwide release, really - we made that a priority. To me, the answer to every question of 'Will you do this to promote the album?' was 'yes.' My team has come up with brilliant ways to market this record, to expand the retail footprint. Selling an album in Walgreens, selling it at Papa John's - these are all different ways that have so far been unexplored, so we'll see what happens."
