In an interview with German outlet RTL, Swift confirms that her political outspokenness will continue on her upcoming seventh studio album.
"I definitely think there are political undertones in the new music I made," she said, according to translations in multiple outlets. "I’m not planning to stop encouraging young people to vote and to try to get them to talk about what’s going on in our country. I think that’s one of the most important things I could do."
Swift's focus on political activism started with the midterm elections last year, when she shared a post supporting the Democratic candidates in Tennessee.
"In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country," she wrote at the time. "I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent."
