The first single to be released from this highly anticipated album, is “Mine.” The video for this was filmed in Portland Maine, earlier this month. “It’s a song about a tendency to run from love,” and incidently though Taylor doesn’t talk about her personal life, she definitely sings about it on this next album.

As she tried to read quickly through the questions coming in on the live web stream, we learned some new and not so new things about Country sweetheart, [lastfm]Taylor Swift[/lastfm]:
- Her favorite coffee: Iced Caramel Latte, is her favorite. She loves Starbucks.
- Was it hard to pick songs for the album? “Yes very hard” – have to be pretty aware of who is effected by your songs, and which songs give you the best reaction. she plays for her mom, her best friend Abigail and people she trusts to give her opinion. Taylor goes by the “may the best song win” rule when picking what songs make the record. Not necessarily her favorites, “although those (her favorites) also tend to be the ones people gravitate towards.”
- What is your favorite food? Taylor says she loves to cook, always loved to bake but is obsessed with cooking lately. Has lots of cookbooks. Her favorite food? Japanese.
- Any acting plans right now? “No, just focusing on the record right now, and wrapping up the final phases.” As far as acting – “I’ve had a blast acting, Valentine’s Day was so much fun.” She doesn’t miss a beat as she thanks her fans for Valentine’s Day Teen Choice Award nomination. Of course you know Taylor is “Obsessed with CSI – got to be in that – was really fun. . .”
