Taylor Swift is giving her fans a surprise by putting out some new songs.
The Grammy winner said on Thursday that she will release four new songs at midnight before her The Eras Tour starts on Friday.
Swift, 33, wrote on her Instagram story, “To celebrate The Eras Tour, I’m putting out 4 songs that have never been out before tonight at midnight.”
What are the four songs? “If This Was a Movie (Taylor’s Version)” and “All of the Girls You Loved Before.”
Before The Civil Wars broke up, Swift wrote and recorded “Eyes Open” and “Safe & Sound” with Williams and White for The Hunger Games soundtrack in 2012.
Before that, “If This Was a Movie” was released as a bonus track on the deluxe version of her 2010 album Speak Now.
“All of the Girls You Loved Before” is a song that has never been on any of Swift’s albums before.

The musician also gave fans a sneak peek at her upcoming Eras Tour on Thursday by posting rehearsal photos on Instagram and writing, “In my Eras era.”
Swift also posted some cute behind-the-scenes photos of her getting ready for the tour.
She showed a backstage pass on one of her Instagram Stories that said “D.O.H. Pass (Dad of Headliner) All Access.”
She wrote over the picture, “Made my dad’s tour pass, we’re a small family business.”
In another post, Swift showed a picture of what looks like her mother Andrea, and father Scott putting jewels on her white guitar. She asked fans who made her “Eras Tour crystallized Fearless guitar” and gave them a few options.
She gave the following choices: “A) skilled artisans and craftspeople; B) a professional musical instrument maker; or C) my parents with super glue and an afternoon to spare.”
On the next slide, she wrote in jest, “…it’s not C,” while her parents added Swift’s lucky number 13 to the instrument.
Swift played the guitar with crystals on it during the tour for her Grammy-winning album Fearless in 2009 and 2010.
After her 10th studio album, Midnights, came out in September, the singer-songwriter announced in November that she would be back on the road with U.S. dates of her next tour.
Swift wrote on social media, “I’m thrilled to announce my next tour: Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour, a trip through the musical eras of my career (past and present!).”
A few days later, she added eight more dates to her tour, bringing the total number of shows to 35.
“UM. It looks like I’ll be able to see more of your lovely faces than I thought… We’re adding eight more dates to the tour, “Swift put up in a tweet.
On Friday, Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour started in Glendale, Arizona. In honor of this, Mayor Jerry P. Weiers temporarily changed the name of Glendale to Swift City.
“Now, therefore, I, Jerry P. Weiers, mayor of the city of Glendale, on behalf of our city council, do hereby proclaim that on March 17 and 18, 2023, the city of Glendale will be renamed Swift City,” he said at a ceremony press conference on Monday, as reported by Billboard.
“And all Swifties are encouraged to share their smiles that could light up this whole town on all social media platforms because the best people in life are free,” he said.
