You know that we love a good Taylor Swift song. We have so many favorites that we could be here for hours, but no one has that kind of time.
And so it’s no surprise that as we are getting a new single from her, but there is excitement that it is Cruel Summer.
“So basically, ‘Cruel Summer’ was on the Lover album. That album came out four years ago. And I just need to let you know something. ‘Cruel Summer,’ that song was my pride and joy on that album. That was my favorite song. And you know, you have conversations before the album comes out and everyone around weighs in on what they think should be singles and I was finally, finally about to have my favorite song become the single off of Lover… and I’m not trying to blame the global pandemic that we had, but that is something that happened that stopped ‘Cruel Summer’ from ever being a single,” Taylor said.
Taylor continued by saying, “So what’s happening right now, thanks to you, and honestly, no one understands how this is happening, but you guys have like streamed ‘Cruel Summer’ so much, right now in 2023, that it’s like at the top, it’s rising on the streaming charts so crazy… and my label just decided to make it the next single.”
“It’s truly, truly perplexing to me because I just haven’t had something like this happen in my career. So thank you to anyone who has been listening to that song like 500 times a day because that is my favorite one,” Taylor finished off by saying at her June 17th Pittsburgh stop.
We’re so excited that one of our favorite songs is become a single. See a video from a fan below, where Taylor talks about the single.
