Taylor Swift Suits Up For NPR Tiny Desk Concert

Taylor SwiftThe country-turned-pop superstar demonstrates that she’s still in touch with her roots as an acoustic singer-songwriter in the intimate performance. Taylor’s latest album Lover is mainly based on her three-year relationship with Joe Alwyn. Pop and country phenom whose relationship-heavy songwriting and knack for a hook made her a superstar.

W wieku 14 lat podpisała kontrakt z wytwórnią muzyczną Big Machine Records. Swój debiutancki album tytułowy wydała w 2006 , zadebiutowała z nim na 5. miejscu prestiżowej listy Billboard 200 , pozostając w notowaniu aż do końca dekady. Trzeci pochodzący z płyty singel, “Our Song”, znalazł się na szczycie Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart, dzięki czemu stała się ona najmłodszą artystką, której singel numer jeden na tejże liście był napisany i wykonany samodzielnie.

Halsey, a surprise guest performer earlier in the evening on Oct. 19, took a moment to rave about Swift’s latest album and belt out the title track’s chorus herself.

Lol at @LAKings who thought they’d cover up the Taylor Swift banner in the stadium and end up winning. 😂😂😂. They did that and still…. LOST! Looooool. Seriously cracked me up.

Swift is blaming not just Braun but also Borchetta, whom she accuses of betraying her loyalty. She says she begged for the opportunity to buy her masters back from Big Machine Records. But the only offer Big Machine gave her, she says, was the chance to earn her masters back one record at a time, so that she would have to release an entirely new album through Big Machine in order to get back the masters to just one of her old albums.

During much of 2008, reports circulated that Swift was dating Joe Jonas from the popular musical group The Jonas Brothers. Neither Swift nor Jonas acknowledged the relationship. “He’s an amazing guy, and anyone would be lucky to be dating him,” Swift said at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards. Whatever their relationship, it seemed to turn sour by the time Fearless was released. The song, “Forever & Always,” is reportedly about Jonas.


Lover” is also Swift’s first release since signing to Republic Records, an imprint of the giant Universal Music Group, in a deal that gave Swift ownership of her master recordings — a treasured deal point , as she later revealed.

Big Machine Label Group says it was negotiating a new deal with Taylor Swift in this document. In 2018 the singer left Big Machine Records, her musical home since starting out as a teenager, for Universal’s Republic Records.

The connection to our fans is our highest priority and through our engagement they have made it clear that the banner shouldn’t be part of their Kings game experience,” Michael Altieri, senior vice president of marketing, communications and content for the Kings and AEG Sports, told the Times.

Go behind the scenes with Fit For An Autopsy as they track songs for their upcoming album, The Sea of Tragic Beasts. Taylor Swift performed Lover tracks acoustically in her NPR Tiny Desk debut.

Swift also received critical praise for her debut effort. She won the Horizon Award from the Country Music Association (CMA) and the Academy of Country Music (ACM) Award for Top New Female Vocalist in 2007. Swift next released Sounds of the Season: The Taylor Swift Holiday Collection that year. Her renditions of “Silent Night” and “Santa Baby” were modest hits on the country charts.

Swift recently posted a picture of her cats as part of what fans believed to be clues about her upcoming album. This next chapter of Swift’s career could very easily see new records set and old ones shattered.Taylor Swift


Taylor and Joe are photographed again, however, this time they’re really trying not to be. Pictures in the Mail Online show the couple wearing hoodies and keeping their eyes to the ground as they leave the singer’s New York City apartment.

However, Swift’s most lucrative gig comes after the album release. Her tours bring in the bulk of her income. Swift’s first “Fearless” tour brought in roughly $75 million. As Swift’s popularity has increased, so has the cost of her concert tickets. The “1989 World Tour” in 2015 was the highest-grossing tour of the year. And in 2018, Taylor Swift’s “Reputation” tour broke records as the highest-grossing US stadium tour of all time. The record was previously held by The Rolling Stones, whose “A Bigger Bang Tour” from 2005 to 2007 grossed $245 million across 70 shows. Swift shattered their record with $345 million from just 38 shows. That’s a $9-million-per-show average.

To pursue her music career, Swift often visited Nashville, Tennessee, the country music capital. There she co-wrote songs and tried to land a recording contract. Noting her dedication, Swift and her family moved to nearby Hendersonville, Tennessee, in an attempt to further Swift’s career.

With her next effort, Swift seemed to step further away from her country music roots. She released 1989, her most pop-sounding record to date, in October 2014. “Shake It Off” proved to be one of the catchiest tracks of the year, reaching the top of the pop charts, and she immediately followed with a second chart-topping single, “Blank Space.” In an age of low album sales, 1989 moved more than 1.2 million copies in its first week, making Swift the first artist to top the 1 million mark in opening-week sales for three albums.

The fourth song from Reputation drops and this time it’s ‘Call It What You Want’ which fans think seems to include a mix of references about both the Kimye feud and Joe.

Swift’s accusations are twofold: Braun, she says, is a bully, and now he owns her master recordings. And Borchetta is a traitor for selling them to Braun behind her back without giving Swift a fair opportunity to buy her old masters for herself.

Below are predictions and hopes for who might join the stage with Swift this summer and most have pretty different musical styles than Swift… whether we’re right or not, one thing’s for sure there will be someone accompanying the popstar that each person will be excited about.

Fans have anxiously been waiting for the singer to take part in this popular NPR music series , and before heading out on her 2020 world tour, she found some time to make it happen.

Appearing in November 2008, Fearless was certified gold by the RIAA in its first week of release, and the record gained momentum throughout 2009, earning several platinum certifications as “Love Story,” “White Horse,” “You Belong with Me,” “Fifteen,” and “Fearless” all scaled the upper reaches of the country charts while “You Belong with Me” nearly topped Billboard’s Top 100. Along with the success came some headlines, first in the form of an infamous appearance at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards where her acceptance speech was interrupted by Kanye West , who burst on-stage to declare that Swift’s rival Beyoncé deserved the award more, but her romances also started gaining attention, notably a liaison with Twilight star Taylor Lautner, who appeared with the singer in the 2009 film Valentine’s Day.


She has been one of the 21st Century’s great pop-cultural icons, while enduring a backlash like few others. With her new album Lover, can she recapture the zeitgeist, asks Nick Levine.

The Kings have decided to cover the pop star’s most sold-out performances” banner for their home games this season, amid speculation the tarp has cursed the organization, who last won the Stanley Cup in 2014.

Swift was then romantically linked to actor Taylor Lautner , one of the stars of the successful Twilight saga. The pair reportedly met while filming Swift’s big screen debut Valentine’s Day, which hit theaters in February 2010. Unfortunately, the couple didn’t make it long enough to see the premiere as a couple, having broken up in late 2009. Swift then dated singer John Mayer for a brief period, which ended on bad terms when she wrote the tell-all song “Dear John” about the womanizer.

Swift also shed light on the process of making the album as a whole. She told the crowd that she “wrote everything on one instrument first” and was pleased about getting the chance to play the songs the way they sounded “when she first wrote them.” Now those are some lucky Swifties.

For his part, Borchetta wrote a lengthy post on Big Machine’s website with the foreboding title, So, It’s Time For Some Truth… ” In that post, which came out a few hours after Swift’s, he responds specifically to Swift’s accusations against him.

Another song from Taylor’s forthcoming album Reputation drops and it’s called ‘Gorgeous’. A banner honouring Taylor Swift is seen during the ‘1989′ world tour at Staples Center on Aug. 22, 2015.

Over the years, Taylor Swift’s influence has only grown. In 2018, she was even named the most influential person on Twitter, despite only tweeting 13 times. Whether it’s pulling her music from Spotify, negotiating fairer royalties with Apple Music, or signing a reportedly $200 million contract with Universal, Swift has been strategic in building her empire.

But as the tour rumbled on, Swift’s roll call of special guests became increasingly random and bewildering. Both Hollywood icon Julia Roberts and counterculture icon Joan Baez joined Swift at her gig in Santa Clara, California in August. Beloved British actor Ian McKellen later revealed that he’d turned down his own opportunity to appear on stage with Swift. These unannounced special guests must have felt like an added bonus for fans who’d paid to see her show. But to others, it also looked like a canny way for Swift to keep herself in the daily showbiz news cycle and underline her superstar pulling power.
