Taylor Swift Reveals The Most Important Message Behind 'Me!'

Taylor Swift Reveals The Most Important Message Behind 'Me!'

Taylor Swift is opening up about her brand new music in a new interview with The Independent.

The 29-year-old singer talks about everything from Easter eggs to when her latest single, “Me!”, actually came into existence. Check it out:

On fans finding the Easter eggs: “I trust them to eventually unravel all of them, even if it isn’t until they hear the full album. That’s how I designed these clues, so that different ones would reveal themselves over time. I know this makes me sound like a frustrating, magical elf making people guess my name or something. If the fans tell me they’re not having fun with it anymore, I swear I’ll stop!”

On the most important message she wanted to send to fans with “Me!”: “I wanted them to see that I’m heading in a different direction musically than they’ve seen in the past few years. This song was to change expectations and be a bit of a palette cleanser before they hear more of this new project. Plus, the chorus just makes me happy and lifts my mood when I sing it. I never want to be presumptuous, but I hoped it might do the same for someone who’s having a s***ty day.”

On when “Me!” was actually written: “I wrote the song this past winter, but I’ve known for quite a while what I wanted this album to look like, feel like, and evoke. I wanted it to be like the sky looks after a storm. Colourful, calm, somehow more beautiful than it ever had been before.”

    Me is a basic song that w/o pay for play promo w ClearChannel would have been a non event.

    Uh, we’re absolutely not having fun with the clues anymore Miss Taylor.

    It’s the same 30 going on 13 shtick she’s always brought out so it’s not that much of a change in direction. I’m not a fan but will admit to liking some of her stuff….this song was not among them.
