Re: Taylor Swift -- Discussion Thread

Last US show until late 2024 tonight. Date is 8/9. Wide speculation that there will be some 1989 Taylor's Version news coming at the show. Also only one song from the album is left unperformed (New Romantics) so everyone expects it to be one of the two Suprise songs tonight.

A cool video though it seems he got her her from behind for most of the video which might probably be her best side.

The original album cover wasn't really that great compared to her other albums.

Nathan Hubbard feels it's intentional.

Re: Taylor Swift -- Discussion Thread

I wonder if she recorded all of her albums probably during the pandemic and conveniently releases them when she feels the time is appropriate?

Will the first album get a Taylor's version or maybe only two songs people know from that record unless you are a die-hard fan?

Re: Taylor Swift -- Discussion Thread

It's the only album that didn't get an "Era" on the Eras Tour.
Since it's by far the least popular of her albums, the owners of her catalog aren't making nearly as much off of the masters as they were on 1989 or Reputation. It makes much more sense to rerecord those albums and release them to devalue the catalog.
Rumor is she just finished re-recording Reputation last week.

Speak Now came out in July and 1989 in Oct 2023 and she is busy with the tour so she must have done those albums in the past.

Two things can be true at once. She almost certainly recorded 1989 ages ago. Wildest Dreams TV was in the Spirit Untamed movie in 2021. But she's been seen coming in and out of Electric Lady Studios in NYC many, many times during this tour on weekdays (tour dates were all weekends until these final dates)..

It would probably still sell a million copies or so with not much push so she might as well get it out there.

Damn, the new Fearless has sold 1.81 million units since release (compared to 500K of the original since the new one dropped) while the new Red has sold 3.32 million units compared to 390K of the original over that time period. This was all as of this July.

Also her debut has gone 7-times platinum so it is one of her higher sellers in the catalog.

Going to try to get tickets for myself and my fiancée for one of the Indianapolis shows. If possible I’m going to try getting four tickets and give two of them to a couple and we’d all go together.

My friend is going to try as well if he gets selected and I don’t. Probably a long shot at getting selected but we’ll see.

Wow, Max Martin working on 1989 TV is a really big deal and a huge surprise, after he sat out Red TV with its iconic “I Knew You Were Trouble” dubstep,

I assume that means he worked on Reputation TV as well. It would have been really hard to recreate that sound without him.

I think before she does her three tour stops in Mexico City, Swift will be staying at her Los Angeles home and help the final mastering of the music for Reputation (Taylor's Version) at Conway Recording Studios in Los Angeles, CA. And (in my opinion!) will be use the Conway Recording Studio to record all the songs for Taylor Swift (Taylor's Version) before she does the South American and 2024 tour stops.

Has the selection not already been done? I got 2 waitlist emails on Tuesday.

I hate verified fan. I never had trouble getting any ticket that I wanted when I was prepared ahead of time before this. Now I don't even get the chance to try.

I was waitlisted 3 or 4 times with verified fan before this, and never once got another contact after the waitlist email, but good luck.

Wow, she just ignored all the peasants - not even a wave to the "little people."

That's your takeaway? She can't go anywhere without being mobbed, and in one 5 second clip doesn't wave to the "peasants" and you're criticizing?

A simple wave at their general direction would have been cool. You can see there was a barricade and she had guards. Let them eat cake, I suppose.

It's pretty amazing to me, she has a (well-deserved) reputation as being very receptive and giving to her fans, and yet you decide she's Marie Aintonette based on a single 5 second clip. But a fair number of your posts in this thread are criticisms of her or her fans or comments on her appearance so I guess it's not surprising.

Criticisms? I'm actually a fan and it sucks that her tickets price out the majority of her fanbase, myself included. I would say the same thing about any band or singer, if they were being dismissive of their fans - 5-second clip or not.

Please post the criticisms I've made about her appearance. You might be confusing me with someone else.
