Taylor Swift fans have something to celebrate today. In a live Ustream chat, the new queen of country music announced that her upcoming album, Speak Now, will hit stores on October 25.

Swift is the sole songwriter on the album, which was largely recorded in co-producer Nathan Chapman’s basement in Nashville.

“You gotta give yourself time to live a lot of things so you can write about a lot of things,” said Swift, who’s still only 20 years old. “Thankfully, in the past two years I’ve experienced a lot of things that I’ve been dying to write about. A lot of things that I’ve wanted to say in the moment that I didn’t… Track by track, each song is a different confession to a different person.”

The first single, “Mine,” will hit radio in August. As for the album’s title, Swift says it “pertains to the album as a concept, and as an entire theme of the record, more than I can even tell you.”

What do you think, readers? Are you excited for the followup to Fearless, the country album that would not die?
