I was revisiting some old posts in this thread, and this comment was made exactly two years ago today. It's crazy we've been having this conversation for two years, literally.
I think the success of the long slow draw out campaign for Red, and the unexpectedness of Midnights had more to do with the delay of Speak Now that the trademark issues
Yeah, I've given up on all Easter Eggs and conspiracy theories, especially about dates. Like, there's no doubt in my mind that Speak Now is definitely the next re-recording, but I have no time and energy to keep up with all the crazy theories the TikTok Swifties come up with about the *when*.Exactly this. I remember a year ago at this time there was that whole Damon Albarn controversy where she called him out for claiming she doesn't write her own songs and we were all like MEAN TV IS COMINGGG. When that didn't happen, I completely gave up on theorizing when we were getting any TV. Then May's drop of This Love TV came, 1989 and SN merch, but nothing.
She was so quiet, then dropping Midnights out of nowhere, but Bejeweled had sooooo many easter eggs it sparked the chatter again (which was in October at this point), I truly gave up on any theory for her roll out plans. It's exhausting.
If this isn’t exactly what’s going on in that video I’ll be really surprised, cant wait!I’m going to put my Swiftie theory hat on one last time…
The video she shot in Liverpool is obviously for Karma, but it’s going to be about her “taking back” Speak Now for herself, which ties in with what we’ve seen/read about the video. Maybe the cover will be on the painting she’s seen running with in the gold dress?
I think this was the plan until Red. With all due, both evermore and Fearless TV were modest successes by her standards and I think she recognised that and was probably anticipating all of the re-recordings to perform similarly and slipping into the routine until Red and All Too Well hit it all out of the park.I’m still a bit baffled by how drawn out she’s made the TVs. Two a year made sense. It’ll be half a decade - if not longer - by the time she’s done at this pace. 1989 definitely should’ve come last summer, and we probably should’ve had Speak Now to coincide with the tour. Just a bit strange.
Can someone enlighten me how a copyright on a calendar means anything? If they use photos from that time is doesn't have to connect to music in any way. Not saying it isn't coming but I just do not see the connection here.
