Back in May, MTV asked Taylor Swift about the theme of her upcoming LP. “What do you think? Boys and love,” she replied matter-of-factly. And she wasn’t lying. Head below to have a listen to “Mine,” the lovey-dovey first single off Swift’s upcoming third album Speak Now (due out October 25).[wpaudio url="http://idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/mine__lBr.mp3" text="Taylor Swift - Mine" dl="0"]
Taylor wrote “Mine” and co-produced it with Nathan Chapman. And we’ll say this about the 20-year-old Grammy winner—she knows how to tap into nervous young adult angst over first love and still make your feet shuffle around while hearing about it.
That said, we can’t help feeling that, both musically and thematically, we’ve heard this song and dance before from Swift. We get it—if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. But hopefully there are more tracks like “Fifteen” on Speak Now to go along with all the “Love Story” sound-alikes.
What do you think—are you excited about Taylor’s first single from her new album? Or were you expecting something a bit different this time around?
UPDATE: If you’re ready to see Taylor in a wedding dress, check out the official music video.
