“The tone is a little different. This one is focused on an all-encompassing, heartbreaking thing that happened, about the rise and fall of a relationship.”—Taylor Swift talking about her new album (via illneverleaveyoualone)
Taylor Swift’s Speak Now topped the 4 million mark in U.S. sales last week. This week it advances to 4,015,000. All three of Swift’s regular studio albums have reached this plateau.
