Taylor Swift introduced Thursday that she’s giving Swifties a significant shock within the type of 4 new songs forward of her tour kickoff.
“In celebration of The Eras Tour I’m releasing 4 previously unreleased songs tonight at midnight,” she revealed on her Instagram Stories. The 4 tracks embody rerecordings of Swift’s twin contributions to the 2012 soundtrack to The Hunger Games — “Eyes Open” and “Safe & Sound” that includes Joy Williams and John Paul White — in addition to “If This Was a Movie (Taylor’s Version)” and never-before-heard track “All of the Girls You Loved Before.”
Notably, the celebrity’s rerecording of her Hunger Games collaboration with The Civil Wars marks the primary time Williams and White have appeared on report collectively for the reason that duo’s contentious 2014 breakup.
“If This Was a Movie” was initially launched as a bonus monitor on the deluxe model of Speak Now, maybe lending credence to the rampant fan theories that the 2010 album would be the subsequent rerecording Swift plans to drop following each Fearless (Taylor’s Version) and Red (Taylor’s Version) in 2021.
The Eras Tour is ready to start on Friday with back-to-back reveals in Glendale, Arizona, which has briefly been renamed Swift City in honor of Swift’s imminent arrival.
Rachel Zegler advised The Hollywood Reporter at Tuesday’s Shazam! Fury of the Gods premiere in Los Angeles that she wasn’t capable of safe tickets to Swift’s tour and blamed the Ticketmaster snafu.
“I got screwed by Ticketmaster, too, guys. Celebrities are just like us — no, I don’t have tickets,” the actress and Swift fan mentioned. “I just want everybody who worked really hard to get those seats, to get them and get to see it. I will see her some other time.”
