Taylor Swift recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about Christmas songs in front of a fireplace while sitting cross-legged on the floor. Because Taylor Swift.

But the "Red" singer also opened up about her upcoming new album, which she revealed we'll be hearing more about "this next month." 2014 already rules!

On the '80's-inspired "Sweeter Than Fiction," her recent Jack Antonoff collaboration that appears on the soundtrack to One Chance (and earned her a Golden Globe nomination), Taylor said to expect more where that came from. "There’s a huge chance of that happening again," she told EW. "This is the first time that Jack Antonoff and I had collaborated. We had been friends for awhile, because I’m really good friends with [Antonoff's girlfriend Lena Dunham] and the three of us are always hanging out. And one time we were together, we were going over tracks and stuff, and there was a lightning bolt that went off between both of us that we should work together."

Another possible collaboration? Singer-songwriter Sia. "I'm kind of obsessed with [her]," Taylor said. "Always have been."

As for the sound of the new album, Taylor couldn't spill too many beans, but yes, it's still going to be about horrible dudes who broke her heart (more or less). "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."

"I’ve always written songs for the same reason—to sort through my emotions," Taylor continued. "As I grow up, the lessons I learn in love and relationships and how we treat each other are hopefully maturing—hopefully."

The best part—fans could be hearing news about the new album as early as January. "For me writing the next record, it usually takes me a while to find the new sound. It usually takes me a year to shed the last album’s sound and start anew. And this one just started on new territory... A great deal of what will happen this year has to do with what will happen this next month."

Time to get to work on your sweet dance moves, Swifties!
