Speak Now is the third studio album by American singer–songwriter Taylor Swift, released on October 25, 2010 by Big Machine Records. Production for the album took place during 2008 to 2010 at several recording studios, and was handled by Swift and country music producer Nathan Chapman. Written entirely by Swift, Speak Now expands on the country pop style of her previous work, and features lyrical themes concerning love, romance and heartbreak.

Speak Now received positive reviews from most music critics, who complimented Swift's songwriting and themes. The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart, selling approximately 1,047,000 units in its first week. Due to strong digital sales, all fourteen songs from the standard edition of the album charted on the Billboard Hot 100, with the lead single "Mine" having the highest peak of number three. It was also an international success, charting within the top 10 in several countries, including Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom. The album has sold 3.7 million copies in the United States and has been certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). As of August 2011, the album has sold over 5.5 million copies worldwide.

Background and recording

Swift worked on the album for two years prior to its release.[1] Swift wrote all of the songs on the album without co-writers. Speaking on a live webcast on July 20, 2010, she said, "I actually wrote all the songs myself for this record. It didn't really happen on purpose, it just sort of happened. Like, I'd get my best ideas at 3:00 AM in Arkansas, and I didn't have a co-writer around and I would just finish it."[2] She has described it as a "conceptual" project, with variations of the theme of "boy-crazy country starlet tries to stop dripping tears all over her guitar".[3] In an analysis of Swift's lyrics, The Oxonian Review noted themes of regret and solitude, highlighting that "December is a month to get through so we can return to the beginning, and is certainly not a month to relish. Yet, Swift goes there—'all the time'—in 'Back to December' by delivering an apology to an ex-boyfriend, which she never did on her prior two albums."[4] Music writer Stephen Thomas Erlewine viewed that the album musically is "no great progression from Fearless but rather a subtle shift toward pure pop with the country accents [...] used as flavoring".[5]

Recording sessions for the album took place at several recording locations, including Aimeeland Studio, Blackbird Studios, and Capitol Studios in Hollywood, California, Pain in the Art Studio, and Starstruck Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, and Stonehurst Studio in Bowling Green, Kentucky.[6] Some of the songs feature live strings, and some, a full orchestra.[7]

Title significance

According to Big Machine Records president/CEO Scott Borchetta, the album's original title was Enchanted. He explained: "We were at lunch, and she had played me a bunch of the new songs. I looked at her and I'm like, 'Taylor, this record isn't about fairy tales and high school anymore. That's not where you're at. I don't think the record should be called Enchanted." After the discussion, Swift then excused herself from the table at that point. By the time she came back, she had the "Speak Now" title, which comes closer to representing the evolution that the album represents in her career and in her still-young understanding of the world.[8]

Release and promotion

Marketing

Speak Now was released worldwide on October 25, 2010 by Big Machine Records.[9][10] It was made available for digital download by iTunes.[11] The album's official cover was premiered through Us Weekly on August 18, 2010.[12] It was also released on vinyl LP on November 22, 2010.[13] On December 20, 2010 a karaoke version of the album was released featuring the album as a CD+G and a DVD.[14]

Swift performed the song "Innocent" at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards on September 12, 2010. Some of the tracks were previewed in advance of the release date: "Speak Now" on October 4, "Back to December" on October 11, and "Mean" on October 18, 2010.[15] These three were subsequently released to the iTunes Store the following day, respectively.[16] Additionally, "The Story of Us" was previewed October 22, 2010, through Comcast on-demand and XfinityTv.com.[16] "Speak Now" debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at number eight and on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart at number sixty the week of October 11, 2010, selling 217,000 digital downloads.[17][18][19] "Back to December" debuted at number six on the Billboard Hot 100, with 242,000 digital downloads.[20] "Mean" debuted at number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 with 163,000 downloads.[21] All fourteen songs on the standard edition of the album have charted on the Billboard Hot 100, with ten tracks debuting the week of the album's release. The highest-charting of these was "Sparks Fly" at number seventeen with 113,000 downloads.[22][23]

On July 15, 2011, Swift's official website announced that she had partnered with Elizabeth Arden to launch a fragrance, which was released in October 2011. The fragrance's name, "Wonderstruck", is a reference to the song "Enchanted".[24] On November 8, 2011, Swift released two more promotional singles from the album, "If This Was a Movie" and "Superman", both were made available for digital download by iTunes.[25]

Singles

The lead single from the album, "Mine" was released on August 4, 2010. The single was released twelve days ahead of its planned August 16 release, due to an online leak of the song.[26] The music video for the song was shot in Kennebunkport, Maine, during July.[27] Swift said the single was about her tendency to "run from love".[1] The song has peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100.[28] "Mine" sold 1,734,000 copies becoming Swift's fifth best-selling song to date.[29] The second single, "Back to December", sold 1,027,000 copies in the US, becoming Swift's twelfth best-selling song to date.[29] "Back to December" was sent to US country radio on November 15, 2010.[30] The music video premiered on January 13, 2011, on CMT[31] and Great American Country.[32] Swift has said of the song's background, "[it] addresses a first for me, in that I've never apologized to someone in a song before. In the good, or bad, or the apology, the person I wrote the song for deserves this. This is about somebody who was incredible to me, just perfect to me in a relationship, and I was really careless with him, so these are the words that I would say to him -- that he deserves to hear."[33]

The third single, "Mean", was released for country stations on March 7, 2011.[34] The music video premiered on CMT on May 6, 2011.[35][36] The song would become Swift's eighth number one hit.[37] According to Swift the song "is about, well, when you do what I do, which is you put yourself out there for a lot of people to say whatever they want about it, there are a million different opinions from a million different people."[38] The fourth single, "The Story of Us", was released on April 19, 2011 to mainstream pop.[39] It was released in the UK on April 4, 2011.[40] The music video premiered on MTV on May 24, 2011.[41] Swift says that it "is a song that I wrote about an awkward situation where, well… Let me just preface by saying that I have happened to run into exes in strange places lately. This is about one of those situations where the strange place that I ran into him was an awards show."[42]

The fifth single, "Sparks Fly", was released on July 18, 2011 to country radio.[43] The song debut at number 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 8 on the Digital Songs Chart due to strong digital sales of 113,000 downloads.[22] "Sparks Fly" is the opening song of the Speak Now World Tour.[44][45][46] According to Swift, the song is about "falling for someone who you maybe shouldn't fall for, but you can't stop yourself because there's such a connection and chemistry. This is a song I wrote a few years ago and I have been working on it ever since. It's been awesome to see it change over the years. The fans have heard it before in concert, but there have been some really cool changes that I am very proud of and can't wait for them to hear."[47] The music video premiered on TaylorSwift.com on August 10, 2011.[48] The sixth single, "Ours" was released as a promotional single on November 8, 2011.[49] Billy Dukes of Taste of Country wrote that "Lyrically, 'Ours' is similar to 'Our Song' in that it’s cheesy and delicious."[50] Swift performed the song at the 2011 Country Music Association Awards on November 9, 2011.[51][52] The song will be released to radio on November 28, 2011.[53]

Tour

Swift performing on the album's supporting tour

To promote the album – a tour – entitled the Speak Now World Tour was announced on November 23, 2010 by Billboard.[1] The tour began with a six-day leg in Asia, from February 9 to February 21, 2011.[1] The tour then ventured in Europe during the month of March, before Swift began the North American leg of the tour on May 21, 2011. The North American leg is set to end in New York City on November 22, 2011, with a total of 80 shows.[54] In August 2011, Swift announced that the tour would be extended into 2012 in Oceania.[55]

Critics have praised the tour with Billboard.com claiming that "Swift’s two-hour production was an overwhelming experience. There's an enormous amount of detail that worked to make the Speak Now Tour a sort of next step in country concert presentation….it blended the pacing, the music and the artist's personality in a way that transfixed.” The Korean Focus Times praised it by saying, “Taylor Swift charms Korea in style, radiant...with pitch-perfect and sincere vocals. The dedication of the fans present was boundless, the cheers of the crowd were sometimes louder than the music itself.” The New York Times claimed the tour "went off, as did every number, with clockwork professionalism and thousands of voices singing along and screaming between the lines. Ms. Swift, 21, is their superstar....her songs are taut, tuneful narratives.” [56]

On August 10, 2011, Swift released a music video for "Sparks Fly", which featured clips taken from four different locations of the tour, which includes one from the show in Newark, New Jersey. The footage with the rain was captured during one of the summer shows in a stadium.[57] A live album of the tour is set to be released on November 21, 2011. The DVD and Blu-ray included with the CD will feature all seventeen song performances taken from the North American leg of the tour.[56]

Speak Now received positive reviews from most music critics.[67] At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 77, based on 20 reviews, which indicates "generally favorable reviews".[67] Allmusic writer Stephen Thomas Erlewine gave it four out of five stars and commended Swift for her lyrical maturity, stating "she writes from the perspective of the moment yet has the skill of a songwriter beyond her years".[5] Los Angeles Times writer Ann Powers stated "she makes memorable music by honing in on the tiny stuff: the half-notes in a hummed phrase, the lyrical images that communicate precisely what it’s like to feel uncomfortable, or disappointed, or happy".[61] Elysa Gardner of USA Today complimented Swift's "youthful" perspective, stating "At its best, Speak Now captures the sweet ache of becoming an adult, as only those who are still in the process can articulate".[68] Eric R. Danton of The Hartford Courant commended her for "balancing the wistful teenage puppy-love mindset of her previous albums with more grown-up themes".[69] Dave Heaton of PopMatters noted "a richer array of narratives and even more songs about that process of turning your life into a narrative".[70] Rudy Klapper of Sputnikmusic gave the album four out of five stars and called it "the best pop record of the year".[71]

Entertainment Weekly's Leah Greenblatt praised Swift's songcraft and called the album's tracks "perfectly contained snow globes of romance and catharsis, whole cinematic narratives rendered in four-to six-minute miniatures".[59] Jon Caramanica of The New York Times called it a "bravura work of nontransparent transparency... the most savage of her career, and also the most musically diverse. And it's excellent too, possibly her best".[62] Rolling Stone writer Rob Sheffield perceived "a minimum of country schmaltz" and commended Swift for "slipping more grown-up details into her love stories".[63] Despite finding its "bubblier tunes [...] the album's dullest, most forgettable moments", Mikael Wood of Spin wrote that "Swift taps into something nervy and intense when she goes nasty".[65] Theon Weber of The Village Voice perceived Swift's songwriting strength as "not confessional, but dramatic" and stated "Like a procession of country songwriters before her, she creates characters and situations—some from life—and finds potent ways to describe them".[66] Weber described the album's songs as "iceberg songs" and elaborated on Swift's musical approach and progression with the album, stating:

Swift enjoys slipping in and out of identities, and her best songs are constructed from multiple, superimposed points of view. She also likes using a tossed-off phrase to suggest large and serious things that won't fit in the song, things that enhance or subvert the surface narrative. [...] She's more comfortable inside these new songs, and cleverer. [...] She can still sound strained and thin, and often strays into a pitch that drives some people crazy; but she's learned how to make words sound like what they mean. [...] Speak Now proves her talent's expanding in proportion to her freedom.[66]
—Theon Weber

Allison Stewart of The Washington Post called the album "ridiculously entertaining [...] a lengthy, captivating exercise in woo-pitching, flame tending and score-settling", but found it "long: 14 wordy, stretched-thin, occasionally repetitive songs".[72] Chicago Sun-Times writer Thomas Conner gave the album two out of four stars and stated "The topicality of 'Speak Now,' plus Swift’s penchant for screwing a big, diesel-powered chorus into every song [...] makes the album a little exhausting".[73] Slant Magazine's Jonathan Keefe found her singing "technically poor" and commented that "her lyrics generally lack the variety and sophistication of her compositions", but complimented its "expertly crafted pop music" and called it "a studied, smart album that is easily the best, most dense work of Swift's career so far".[64] Alex Macpherson of The Guardian commented that "At times the self-consciousness of an artist forcing herself into new modes shows – but mostly, Speak Now is a triumph".[60] In his consumer guide for MSN Music, critic Robert Christgau gave Speak Now an A- rating,[58] indicating "the kind of garden-variety good record that is the great luxury of musical micromarketing and overproduction".[74] Christgau found the songs "overlong and overworked", but ultimately stated "they evince an effort that bears a remarkable resemblance to care‑-that is, to caring in the best, broadest, and most emotional sense".[58] The album was ranked number 13 on Rolling Stone's year-end best albums list for 2010.[75]
