Taylor Swift has surprised fans by making ‘You're Losing Me (From The Vault)’ available on streaming platforms, in celebration of being named Spotify's Top Global Artist of 2023.
‘You're Losing Me (From The Vault)’ was previously only released via Taylor Swift's online store as a digital exclusive, as well as being included on the Late Night Edition CD of the ‘Cruel Summer’ hitmaker's widely acclaimed 2022 album, Midnights.
Featuring Taylor Swift's trademark lyricism and her unrivalled ear for a captivating melody, ‘You're Losing Me (From The Vault)’ has undoubtedly held a special place in Swities’ hearts ever since it was first shared by the global megastar in May 2022. Many have speculated that the lyrics concern Taylor's ex, Joe Alwyn.
The single artwork pursues a similar creative direction to that of Midnights, and given the fact that the track originally appeared as a bonus song on a special CD edition of the project, it's perhaps unsurprising that the hazy, subtle production and intricate narrative that pervaded Midnights also colours ‘You're Losing Me (From The Vault)’.
It gives listeners a chance to re-immerse themselves in the enchanting world crafted on Midnights, with fans championing the singer-songwriter's decision to officially release the song.
Taking to her socials, Taylor Swift explained why she had decided to make ‘You're Losing Me (From The Vault)’ available to stream at long last, paying tribute to her loyal fans, “Um ok this is unreal?? I just wanted to say to anyone who listened to my music this year, anywhere in the world, thank you. Getting named Spotify’s Global Top Artist in 2023 is truly the best birthday/holiday gift you could’ve given me”.
Taylor went on to underline, “We’ve seriously had THE MOST fun this year out there on tour and now this. Are you serious. So I was trying to think of a way to thank you, and a lot of you have been asking me to put “You’re Losing Me (From The Vault)” on streaming... so here you go! You can finally listen EVERYWHERE now”.
This unexpected drop follows hot on the heels of Taylor Swift's latest re-recording, 1989 (Taylor's Version), which the chart-topping singer-songwriter released on October 27.
