    "Taylor has an incredible presence and when she decided to make Interscope her musical home we were thrilled," said Jimmy Iovine, Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records.

    Taylor, who stars as the fashion-forward Jenny Humphrey on "Gossip Girl," not only is the lead singer for The Pretty Reckless, but she also co-wrote all of the songs on the new album.

    "I'm so excited to be among the talented and respected artists signed to Interscope Records," Taylor,1 5, said in a statement. "Partnering with Jimmy Iovine is an honor."

    In a previous interview with AccessHollywood.com, Taylor talked about the bands she enjoys listening to in her down time.

    "I have an eclectic taste. One of my favorite bands is Garbage. I love Paramore. I love Avril Lavigne – and I still love Britney Spears. I love dancing to her stuff," she said in 2008.

    But Taylor isn't the only "Gossip" girl who is making a leap into the music business.

    As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Leighton Meester signed a record deal with Universal Republic through Time-Act Music last month.

    Leighton's album is slated to drop in the fall.
