TS1Superstar Pop songstress Taylor Swift unveils the video for ‘Shake It Off’, the first single and video from her fifth studio album, ‘1989’ (Big Machine Records).

Taylor explains: “Over the last few years I’ve learned a very important lesson. We cannot control what people say about us but we can control how we react to it. We can let it get to us, make us bitter, even drive us insane or we can shake it off.”

On her songwriting and sonic evolution of the new album, Taylor says: “I spent two years making 1989. Two years gives you enough time to grow and change and let things inspire you. I was listening to a lot of late 80’s pop music and how bold those songs were and how that time period was a time of limitless possibilities. In thinking about that, this album is a rebirth for me. This is my very first documented, official pop album. 1989 is the most sonically cohesive album I have ever made and my favourite album I have ever made.”t swift 1989Details of the 1989 Swiftstakes are available at TaylorSwift.com, including the opportunity for fans to win prizes like 1,000 tickets and 500 meet and greets.
