Taylor Swift ends The RED Tour with a final show in Singapore on Thursday. She launched the trek back in March 2013 and has since played sold-out shows in North America and Europe before becoming the first woman in 20 years to headline stadiums in Australia late last year. The final string of Asian shows began June 4 in Jakarta. The RED Tour is Taylor’s third major outing following her Fearless and Speak Now treks.
Now that The RED tour is behind her, Taylor can turn her full attention to launching her fifth studio album later this year. Her record label president, Scott Borchetta, tells Rolling Stone she’s working with pop producer Max Martin on most of the new project, which promises to continue the pop leanings of RED. Taylor will still keep a foothold in the country market though.
Scott says, “Taylor fans are going to love it. Will country stations play a complete pop song just because it’s her? No. But when she comes to town, her friends at country radio will come and see her.”
As she did with the first single from RED, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” Taylor is expected to announce the lead track from her fifth album before summer’s end.
