On March 17, Taylor Swift kicks off her Eras Tour in Glendale, Arizona (also known as “Swift City”), and to add to the excitement, she shared four previously unreleased songs. Three of the songs are “Taylor covers”, meaning they are re-recorded editions of well-known tracks, and one, “All of the Girls You Loved Before”, will be released for the first time. She listens to the new songs below.
Two of the new songs on “Taylor’s Version” come from the 2012 soundtrack for The Hunger Games: “Eyes Open” and Civil Wars, with “Safe & Sound”. The other re-recorded track, “If This Was a Movie”, was originally on the deluxe edition of Speak Now, marking Swift’s first review of the album.
