Taylor Swift to release new album on Oct. 27

NEW YORK (AP) — Taylor Swift is saying goodbye to country music, for now: The singer says she's releasing her first full-length pop album on Oct. 27. 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," released Monday and debuted during the livestream. Swift said her upcoming fifth album, which was mainly inspired by late '80s pop music, is the "most sonically cohesive album I've ever made." "1989" was available for pre-order Monday. The singer also premiered the music video for "Shake It Off" during the livestream. Swift's last effort was 2012's "Red," which sold 1.2 million copies in its first week.
