Taylor Swift will release her third album, Speak Now, worldwide on October 25.
The singer announced the date to her fans through a live web chat.
It's been two years since Taylor released her last album Fearless. She said: "You've got to give yourself a little bit of time to live a lot of things so you can write about a lot of things."
Taylor said the title, Speak Now, is also the theme, and that "track by track, each song is a different confession to a different person".
She wrote all 14 tracks herself. The first single Mine will be released on August 16. Taylor also plans to launch a world tour following the release.
Fearless was the top-selling album of 2009 and earned Swift every major award, including four Grammys.
