“Midnight” got even more exciting, as Taylor Swift revealed she would be releasing four previously unreleased songs at midnight ET / 9 p.m. PT, on the eve of the first night of her Eras Tour. Three of the songs are part of Swift’s massive re-recording endeavor, and one is a never officially released track that was written during the “Lover” era.
The singer made the announcement on her Instagram Story, writing, “In celebration of The Eras Tour, I’m releasing four unreleased songs tonight at midnight.” Tracks include “Eyes Open (Taylor’s Version)”, “Safe & Sound (Ft. Joy Williams and John Paul White) (Taylor’s Version)”, “If This Was a Movie (Taylor’s Version)”, and “All of the Girls You Loved before.
“All of the Girls You Loved Before” is an unreleased track that was considered for Swift’s 2019 album “Lover.” The song was leaked in February this year, only to go viral on TikTok and meet demands. fans for its official release. As it was recorded after she left Big Machine for Republic Records, a re-recording was not necessary, making it the only of the four tracks that does not carry the “Taylor’s Version” label.
The rollout of tracks includes two cuts from the “Hunger Games” soundtrack that fans might have feared were orphaned in its re-recordings because they never appeared on a Swift album. “Safe & Sound” had officially co-billed Civil Wars when it was first released in 2011; Since the two artists that made up this duo have long since split up, it appears Williams and White have re-recorded their parts separately and will be billed on the remake as respective solo artists. This song and “Eyes Open” were featured on “The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12” and were released in December 2011 and March 2012, respectively.
“If We Were A Movie,” meanwhile, precedes an as-yet-unannounced deluxe version of Swift’s “Speak Now” album, which many fans believe will be the singer’s next re-recorded album.
Swift’s Eras tour begins Friday night in Glendale, Arizona.
