In her new NME cover story, Swift told the U.K. magazine she can't expect her next album to be as big as 1989 has been. 

"How could the next one be as big?" she said. "Maybe the next album will be a bridge to somewhere else. Or maybe I'll just go ahead and change everything."

And talking about what comes next, it sounds like it's time for the pop star to recharge a bit. 

"I think I should take some time off," she said. "I think people might need a break from me. I'm going to… I don't know. Hang out with my friends. Write new music. Maybe not write new music. I don’t know."

The full interview will be published Friday with the new issue of NME
