Swift unleashes phone app

Thursday, June 10, 2010 – Taylor Swift announced today she would work with Mix Me In2, a music technology by Atlanta-based Fried Green Apps, to develop an iPhone App.

Executives from the company will be on hand Sunday 6/13 at Swift's 13-hour meet and greet as part of the Country Music Festival in Nashville to unveil Mix Me In2 Taylor Swift. Fans can use the app to create hundreds of different versions of their favorite songs. They can remove or change instruments. They can mix themselves into the music by replacing existing instruments and vocals with their own.

"I love playing music, and I love creating music," Swift said. "And, as somebody who is also a big music fan, I always love finding acoustic versions of my favorite songs. I think Mix Me In2 will be a great way for fans to have fun interacting with my music and to listen to new versions of my songs."

Each song in Mix Me In2 Taylor Swift comes with five new versions: rock, acoustic, urban, piano, and coffee house. The will cost $2.99 and comes with two of Swift's biggest hits, Love Story and You Belong With Me. Additional songs will cost $1.99 each.

Fans can upload their versions of the songs to TaylorSwift.com and share them via Facebook and Twitter.

"It's more than an iPhone app," said Grammy-winning producer Dallas Austin, a key player in the creation of Mix Me In. "It turns every music fan into a music producer."

The biggest difference is that Swift's singing, spotty on previous releases and live performances, is far far superior here. Swift wrote all 14 songs here, which like her other albums tend to deal with relationships that have gone south. Swift's songwriting always has been one of her strengths, and that continues to be the case here - both lyrically and musically. Put simply, Swift knows a lot about penning ...
CD review - Fearless Taylor Swift took the county world by storm with her huge selling debut and its five hit singles. With a huge marketing push and myspace, Swift was on her way. Kind of like an Avril Lavigne for the teen female country set. Sophomore slump? There's no indication of that. Swift once again writes her material - all 13 songs here with help sometimes from Liz Rose, Colbie Caillat and John Rich. Swift writes of what she knows about - relationships and teen love come and gone in songs speak to her fans. ...
