Grammy-winner Taylor Swift released four news songs yesterday at midnight and announced she would be going on an Eras tour, which kicks off today in Glendale, Arizona.
Her four latest tracks are re-recording of songs “Eyes Open”, “Safe & Sound” and “If This Was a Movie” and her previously-leaked song “All the Girls You Loved Before.”
Swift released “Eyes Open” and “Safe and Sound” for the Hunger Games soundtrack in 2011 and 2012, reports Yahoo Entertainment.
Meanwhile, “If This Was a Movie” was featured on the deluxe version of her third album Speak Now in 2012, which fans speculate will be her next album re-recording.
“All the Girls You Loved Before” is an unreleased track that was considered for her seventh studio album Lover. The song was leaked last month and went viral on TikTok, prompting fans to beg for its release.
In November 2020, she was legally allowed to re-record her first five albums, which Scooter Braun gained ownership of following his $330 million deal with Big Machine Label Group.
Swift previously spoke out after Braun sold her masters to Shamrock Holdings for $300 million.
After leaving Big Machine, Swift signed with Republic Records and Universal Music Group in an agreement to own the rights to her music going forward.
In 2019, she released Lover, followed by her two pandemic albums, Folklore and Evermore, in 2020. Then, in 2021, she released a “Taylor’s Version” for Fearless and Red.
