Celebrations for Taylor Swift’s “The Eras Tour” have started, with Glendale, Arizona, the first stop of the whole tour, temporarily renaming their city to “Swift City” as a tribute to the star. But Swift has a surprise of her own, and it comes in the form of four new songs.
Swift, who hasn’t toured since 2018, announced on her Instagram Story her treat to fans everywhere. “In celebration of ‘The Eras Tour’ I’m releasing [four] previously unreleased songs tonight at midnight,” she wrote on March 16, adding that it will include Taylor’s versions of “Eyes Open” and “Safe & Sound,” both of which were included on “The Hunger Games” soundtrack, and Taylor’s version of “If This Was A Movie.” There is also an original track titled “All the Girls You Loved Before Me,” which Variety reports was originally supposed to be part of her album, “Lover.” Meanwhile, the release of “If This Was A Movie,” which was a track on her “Speak Now” album, may be Swift’s way of hinting that she would re-record it next.
“The Eras Tour” is set to kick off on March 17th, and per Swift herself, it’s “a journey through the musical eras of my career.” She’s set to bring a bunch of musical guests, including Paramore, Phoebe Bridgers, MUNA, HAIM, Gracie Abrams, and more. And in true Swift fashion, the setlist is strictly kept under wraps, so get excited!
