After wrapping up her latest blockbuster world tour, Swift is already thinking about cutting the follow-up to 2010's megasmash, Speak Now. "I have the entire summer just to finish up the record," says Swift, "so that will be awesome." Expect some new tricks: "There are a few songs that are completely from another person's perspective," adds the singer. "I really like the feeling of making little departures musically."
