Katy's Part of Me and Kelly's Stronger leaked months in advance and became #1 singles, so there's a precedent. But you're right in the sense that it's very impressive All of the Girls charted as high as it did with less than 24 hours notice of it being available and then it being buried on digital platforms. It probably would've gone Top 10 if people could actually find it!Nice to have a receipt for our faves when a very good song leaks and labels tells that makes it unable to officially be released now.
I am somewhat obsessed with both this parody and this man.
Lavender Haze acoustic has been released
I agree with this… the songs are great but the production is stale. I think she needs to work with someone new.This album's soundscape is not it and has limited replay value for me. It's trying to be a return to pop but it all sounds so...grey. Even if she's lyrically regressed from the folk singer/songwritery duology, she's still a great worthsmith overall on the album, but the soundscape is so blah.
I think You're On Your Own, Kid and Would've, Could've, Should've both fulfil this spot for me and then some. I'm surprised anyone doesn't find them significant in her discography.I think Midnights is just missing that absolutely massive banger of an album track that she usually has a couple of on each collection - New Romantics, Getaway Car, August, All Too Well, Out Of The Woods, Cruel Summer, All You Had To Do Was Stay, This Is Me Trying. Like when I think of my all time fave Taylor songs it’s mainly album tracks. There’s a handful of album tracks on Midnights which are good, but to me there aren’t any that are knock you off your feet incredible.
