Taylor Swift has revealed that her next album will be more mature, with a confessional storyline.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly she revealed some details about her upcoming fifth studio album, "Describing it is difficult. At the core of what I do, it's always going to revolve around a confessional storyline and filling my fans in on what my life has actually been.

"It's become this lifeline between me and my friends and they know that no matter what they read in some magazine, they're going to hear the actual accounting of it when the album comes out."

Swift added that her music will mature as she grows older, "I've always written songs for the same reason - to sort through my emotions. As I grow up, the lessons I learn in love and relationships and how we treat each other are hopefully maturing."
