Taylor Swift's fairytale world, built on a strong foundation of diary-like entries, might be experiencing a few chips. The songwriter, 23, recently released a romping pop tune called "Sweeter than Fiction," a cut from James Corden's upcoming film "One Chance." As with her previous work, the new tune, which is featured in the film's end credits, takes on the complicated topic of relationships. Regardless of its success thus far, it was a project her label Big Machine wasn't too keen on doing.
"I had to fight to do this because I try to take a break in between albums and try and give people a minute to not hear me on the radio," she explains to BBC Newsbeat. "I had to go around and ask people, 'Can I please, please put something out?' even though we're supposed to be going quiet."
Swift released her fourth studio album "Red" last fall, and the project spawned two No. 1 pop hits ("We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," "I Knew You Were Trouble.") and one country chart-topper ("Begin Again"). The album's latest entry is "Red."
She adds, "My management, my label were like, 'No new music until the next album comes out.' Then I saw the movie and I was like, 'I have to be a part of this.'"
Swift leads this year's nominees for the 47th Annual CMA Awards with six nods, including Entertainer and Album of the Year. The show will be co-hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood for the sixth year running live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Nov. 6.
