Taylor Swift offers live and remix versions of “Cruel Summer” to her fans

Music news

Taylor Swift has just released “The Cruelest Summer” which brings together three versions of her flagship track, including the live version and an unexpected remix.

Wednesday October 18, Taylor Swift wanted to address her fans. In the caption of her last post she wrote to them: “ You turned the concert film “The Eras Tour” into something truly breathtaking. I’ve watched videos of you in movie theaters dancing, strutting, choreographing, cracking jokes, casting spells, getting engaged, and generally creating exactly the type of joyous chaos we are known for. “.

But that’s not all since as a token of her gratitude she gave them the most beautiful surprise. “ One of the things I loved the most was when you guys were so supportive of “Cruel Summer” that I ended up starting the Eras Tour show with that song. For old times sake, I’m releasing the live audio from the tour so we can all scream it from the comfort of our homes and cars, plus a brand new remix by (LP Giobbi). Thank you very much, forever, wow, just thank you! !! “.

A week after the release of her film in theaters and its phenomenal success at the box office, Taylor Swift knows how to spoil her Swifties. With this live version recorded with the Los Angeles audience, the singer made thousands of people happy who will once again sing with her at the top of their lungs the famous: “ And it’s new, the shape of your body/ It’s blue, the feeling I’ve got/ And it’s ooh, whoa, oh “. As a reminder, “Cruel Summer”, which became the opening title of the “Eras Tour”, was recorded in 2019 but the pandemic took its toll. Never mind that his success throughout the North American tour motivated the young woman to put him on the radio this summer. And it looks like he still has a few more years of success ahead of him.
