Singer and Grammy Award winner Taylor Swift announced on Thursday, March 16 that she has a surprise to her fans in the form of four new songs ahead of her upcoming The Eras Tour.
“In celebration of The Eras Tour I’m releasing 4 previously unreleased songs tonight at midnight,” she revealed on her Instagram stories. The four tracks include “Eyes Open” and “Safe and Sound” featuring Joy Williams and John Paul White from The Hunger Games soundtrack, as well as “If This Was a Movie (Taylor’s Version)” and the never before heard track “All of the Girls You Loved Before.”
The superstar’s re-recording of her Hunger Games collaboration with The Civil Wars marks the first time Williams and White have appeared on the record together since the duo’s contentious 2014 breakup.
Her song “If This Was a Movie” was originally released as a bonus track on the deluxe version of her album Speak Now, perhaps there have been very strong fan theories circulating around that the 2010 released album would be the next re-recording Swift plans to drop following the release of Fearless (Taylor’s Version) and Red (Taylor’s Version) in 2021.
The Eras Tour is set to kick off on Friday, March 17, with back to back shows in Glendale, Arizona, which has temporarily been renamed Swift City in honor of the singer’s arrival.
Ahead of the singer’s highly anticipated tour, Billboard staffers ranked her 100 best songs for the very first time in Billboard history from “Look What You Made Me Do” (No. 100) and “Death by a Thousand Cuts” (No. 74) to “White Horse” (No. 34), “The Last Great American Dynasty” (No. 17) and so much more.
