American songstress Taylor Swift will switch on the Christmas lights at Westfield shopping centre, Shepherds Bush, on November 6, it was announced today.

Swift, 22, will perform her three of her latest singles including We are Never Getting Back Together from the album Red.

She will also be joined by youngsters from the Save the Children charity when they countdown in front of an expected crowd of 10,000 fans.

Westfield general manager, Myf Ryan, said: “The Christmas lights switch-on is one of the highlights of the festive calendar and we are incredibly excited that Taylor Swift is launching Christmas for us at Westfield London.

“Not only is Taylor such a globally recognised artist, she is also of enormous appeal to our shoppers. We look forward to putting on a memorable show for our visitors.”

Taylor Swift’s fourth studio album, Red, was released by Big Machine Label Group and Mercury Records. After writing her last album (Speak Now) entirely by herself, for this record Taylor collaborated with several artists, producers, and songwriters she had always wanted to work with.

Named by Time Magazine as one of the most 100 most influential people in the world, Taylor Swift has won over 110 awards including 6 Grammys. In 2010 she became the youngest artist in history to win a Grammy award for ‘Album of The Year’. Two years later, Swift became the youngest Billboard Awards ‘Woman of the Year’ winner in history.
