Nashville: Taylor Swift will release her third album, ‘Speak Now,’ worldwide on Oct. 25.

She announced it to her fans Tuesday through a live web chat.

It`s been two years since Swift released her sophomore album ‘Fearless.’ She says, "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."

Swift explains that the title, ‘Speak Now,’ is 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 Aug. 16. Swift 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.
