Taylor Swift Drops New Merchandise for ‘Swiftie Summer Collection’ – Billboard

My sincere apologies to the Taylor Swift fans who thought the new music was coming on Friday (May 13). While Swifties haven’t (yet) received any re-recorded songs or vault tracks this week, there’s one thing they have to look forward to now: new merchandise.

Taylor Nation, Swift’s management account, posted an unspecified countdown via Instagram Story on Friday, leading many fans to believe that the release of another album, her 1989 re-recorded version or Speak Now, was on the way. on my way. Speculation that the album (or albums) was scheduled to arrive is due to her releasing the “Taylor Version” of the 1989 song, “This Love”, which formally arrived with the release of The Summer I Turned trailer. Jenny Han’s Pretty last week.

Instead, the countdown was to new summer-themed products at Taylor’s official store, appropriately titled Swiftie Summer Collection. The new collection of products features a variety of beach towels, pool floats, sunglasses, muscle shirts, drink cups, portable fans, bum bags, an activity kit and more. Accessories prices start at $15, while wearable clothing starts at $40. “The clear blue water high tide is here and it brought you this new merchandise just in time for #SwiftieSummer! Available now while supplies last at store.taylorswift.com,” Taylor Nation tweeted.

In light of the merchandise drop and no update on the upcoming re-release, Swifties took to Twitter to voice their complaints and the embarrassment they felt for holding their hopes for the album’s release. “Giving us merch instead of #1989TaylorsVersion, talk about a cruel summer,” one fan wrote, referencing Swift’s song from 2019’s Lover, in response to Taylor Nation announcing the new fan merch.
