Taylor Swift will be keeping a lower profile in the next few months following her four Grammy wins over the weekend. Her record label president, Scott Borchetta, tells USA Today that Taylor most likely won't make another major appearance on U.S. television until April, at the Academy of Country Music Awards.
Taylor's been trying to avoid overexposure lately, and she's used the time away from the spotlight to work on her third album. It turns out, she's already got enough songs for a full album release in the can, but any killer songs written between now and July will make the final track listing. Expect the first single from that album to hit the airwaves in late summer or early fall. The full album is expected to come out in time for Christmas.
While most everything has gone Taylor's way in the past few years, her "pitchy" TV performances have caused some critics to cry foul. Taylor's collaboration with Stevie Nicks at the Grammys on "Rhiannon" and "You Belong With Me" is a prime example, and Scott Borchetta says Taylor is working to fix the problem. He tells USA Today, quote, "She's a very intelligent girl. She's going to keep addressing it and keep getting better." While Taylor is keeping a lower profile in the U.S., she's ramping up the publicity machine in Australia and Japan in a big way. Taylor's Fearless tour launches Down Under on Thursday.
What else can people do but complain about a pitch problem when there isn't much else to complain about when it comes to Taylor. I think she does sound pitchy live but I've chalked it up to her being young and inexperienced and it hasn't bothered me much. There are MANY very experienced artists who sound horrible live but I chalk that up to nerves and being live, no biggie. ~Vanessa
