The 'Call Me Maybe' star also spoke about the reasons behind her naming the record Kiss.
"I was at an interview once, and someone just came out and asked me, 'What's your album going to be called?' and I was like, 'Kiss', and that was how I decided," she told MTV.
"It really is an album about love, flirtation and the beginnings of things and it felt like it really suited it. There's a track called 'This Kiss' on the album, which I think is probably my favourite song so that's probably why."
She added: "I waited for my first kiss. I waited until I was 17, and he was a jazz singer named Brenden Call. Nice guy, sweet guy. We still keep in touch on Facebook."
Kiss is out on September 17 in the UK and a day later in the US.
