Taylor Swift has announced that she will be releasing her first full-length pop album on October 27, 2014.
The 24-year-old revealed in a livestream via Yahoo! on Monday that “1989,” named for her birth year, is her “first documented official pop album.”
The first single is the upbeat jam “Shake It Off,” which she debuted during the livestream and was released Monday. She danced happily in a cropped white top and skirt with the audience as the song played.
Swift called her upcoming fifth album a “rebirth.”
“We made the most sonically cohesive album I’ve ever made,” she said of “1989,” which was available for pre-order on Monday.
Swift’s last effort was 2012’s “Red,” which sold 1.2 million copies in its first week. Swift said she was mainly inspired by late ’80s pop music when recording “1989” over the past two years.
