On Thursday, the singer of "Anti-Hero" announced on Instagram that in honor of her upcoming Eras Tour, she will be releasing four never-before-heard songs. These songs are scheduled to debut at midnight and include "Eyes Open (Taylor's Version)," "Safe & Sound (Taylor's Version)" featuring Joy William and John Boy Music, "If This Was a Movie (Taylor's Version)," and "All of the Girls You Loved Before."
It appears that three of the four songs are remastered versions, as they have the "(Taylor's Version)" tag in their titles. This is due to Swift's previous label, Big Machine, selling the master recordings of her music catalog in 2019, leading the artist to record new versions of her previous albums. Swift has already released "Fearless (Taylor's Version)" and "Red (Taylor's Version)" in 2021.
One of the tracks, "If This Was a Movie," was originally featured on a deluxe version of her 2010 album "Speak Now." Swift is known for hiding Easter eggs in her music, videos, and social media, leading fans to speculate that "Speak Now" may be the next album she plans to release.
"Eyes Open" is from "The Hunger Games: Songs from District 12 and Beyond" soundtrack, which was a companion album for the 2012 film "The Hunger Games." The song was not included in the film but was on the soundtrack along with "Safe & Sound."
Finally, "All of the Girls You Loved Before" is a previously unreleased track that was recorded during Swift's "Lovers" era in 2019.
Swift's Eras Tour, which fans have been eagerly anticipating, will begin in Glendale, Arizona, on March 18th, marking her first tour in five years.
