As Taylor Swift prepares to roll back the years with her new, discography-encompassing Eras tour, given the fact that she has almost 200 Billboard Hot 100 chart entries to her name, we suspect it's been more than a little tricky for the megastar to nail down her setlist.
The new tour is set to include much-loved throwbacks from albums such as 1989, Red and Fearless, along with fan-favourites from her most recent offering, Midnights.
However, Taylor has just made it even harder to decide which songs to leave out of her 2023 tour setlist, having today released four unreleased tracks. These include ‘All Of The Girls You Loved Before’, which seems to have been taken from her Lover sessions in 2019.

In addition to ‘All Of The Girls You Loved Before’, Taylor Swift has also released ‘Eyes Open (Taylor's Version)’, ‘If This Was A Movie (Taylor's Version)’ and ‘Safe & Sound (Taylor's Version)’.
The latter features Joy Williams and John Paul White, and the original rendition famously featured on The Hunger Games soundtrack in 2012, as did ‘Eyes Open’.
The original recording of ‘If This Was A Movie (Taylor's Version)’ first featured on her widely acclaimed 2010 album, Speak Now. It's one of the latest tracks to be revamped in light of Taylor Swift's quest to ensure she owns the masters to all her music.
It remains to be seen whether Taylor will be performing any of these during her 2023 Eras run of shows, which kicks off tonight in Glendale, Arizona. However, given the colossal amount of tracks she'll be choosing from, it seems likely these newly released songs are simply a gift to fans to help them celebrate the start of the tour.
