Taylor Swift has hidden "little codes in lyrics," of her new album 'Red'
Taylor Swift has hidden "little codes in the lyrics" of her new album.
The 'Speak Now' hitmaker is renowned for writing songs about her famous ex-boyfriends, and admits there are clues on her new album, 'Red', as to who she is singing about.
She told USA Today newspaper: "It's pretty difficult to come up with, because I know you guys are going to figure them out. With the last album, I thought I was much more clever and cryptic than I really was. [But I'm trying to] hide little codes in lyrics."
The first puzzle to emerge is on Taylor's first single 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together', a heartbreak song which features the line: "And you would hide away and find your peace of mind / With some indie record that's much cooler than mine."
Taylor - who has dated Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer and Taylor Lautner, among others - admits her love life is a central theme to 'Red'.
She added: "I tend to kind of skew in the direction of writing songs about love. That's kind of where I naturally go. [These songs are about] really dysfunctional and not good generally relationships.
"When I'm writing an album, my world becomes a big storyboard. Everyone around me has the potential to be a character."
'Red' is released on Ocotober 22.
