Taylor Swift Songs Return to TikTok One Week Before The Tortured Poets Department Drops

 

All of the 14-time Grammy winner’s music had been removed from the app on Feb. 1 due to a failed licensing agreement between TikTok and Universal Music Group.

 

 

Taylor Swift is back in action on TikTok.

On April 11, TikTok users were happy to see that the singer’s catalog had returned to the app, with songs ranging from her most recent album, Midnights, to her re recorded albums, including 1989 (Taylor’s Version) and Red (Taylor’s Version). The only albums not included are 2017’s Reputation and her debut, self-titled album from 2006, both of which fans still eagerly await the re recordings for.

Since Feb. 1, her songs, along with the work of many other chart-topping artists, have been missing from TikTok after Universal Music Group (UMG) and the app failed to come to a licensing agreement. According to a statement released by the label, TikTok was unwilling to “strike anything close to a market-rate deal” in order to fairly compensate artists and also failed to “meaningfully address its obligations as a social platform” on hot-button issues like the rise of AI. The agreement expired on Jan. 31, prompting the removal of all UMG artists’ catalogs from the app the following day.

The statement said that UMG was abiding by their “responsibility to our artists to fight for a new agreement under which they are appropriately compensated for their work, on a platform that respects human creativity, in an environment that is safe for all, and effectively moderated.”

Swift’s catalog is the first to return to TikTok, more than two months after its removal.

Of the 13-time Grammy winner’s collection, some of the most frequently used songs on the app include Folklore’s “cardigan,” which has been used in over 1.3 million videos, as well as Lover’s “Cruel Summer,” and “Style (Taylor’s Version)” from 1989 (Taylor’s Version).

The return of the 34-year-old’s repertoire on the app comes just one week before her 11th studio album, The Tortured Poets Department, is set to premiere. Earlier this week, Swift teased some lyrics from the forthcoming album in honor of the solar eclipse on March 8.

On her Instagram Story, she shared a link to preorder the album as well as a video of a typewriter typing out a set of what seemed like lyrics off a new song: “Crowd goes wild at her fingertips/Half moonshine, Full eclipse.”
