With a year to go before Taylor Swift expects to put a new album in stores, the singer says she’s already recorded enough tunes to fill a double disc CD. During an interview with Ryan Seacrest Thursday morning, Swift revealed that she’s been writing and recording since her last album ‘Speak Now’ was released. 

“I’ve recorded 25 so far, and we have a year to go,” Swift said. While most of the material on ‘Speak Now’ came within six months of the album’s completion, the singer says she’s been active for over a year. Many of the songs were written on her own, just a girl and her guitar with pen and paper at three o’clock in the morning.

“Being so busy there’s not a lot of time to stop in the middle of the day and just kind of think about this feeling that you just realized about a relationship you had a year ago,” Swift commented when asked why her best ideas come so late at night. “The ones I love the most end up happening very quickly.”

Two weeks ago, an article in the New Yorker shared that Swift hasn’t been happy lately. When asked about the songs she’d written for the new album, she said, “They’re sad? If I’m being honest.” The most recent one, she revealed, “is about moving on.” There’s speculation that Swift has gone through a tough breakup this summer.
