AT&T, one of the world’s biggest mass media companies, announced its new TV streaming service called DirecTV Now, an online video streaming service, this week. It will launch later this month in the US, but a UK date is yet to be announced. One of its new programmes? A Taylor Swift TV show.
It’s been two years since Taylor Swift released her world beating 1989, but that doesn’t mean the ‘New Romantics’ singer has been keeping a low profile. She toured the world for almost an eternity – her group of exclusively attractive friends in tow – released ‘New Romantics’ as a single this February, and then co-wrote Calvin Harris and Rihanna’s summer-crushing anthem ‘This Is What You Came For’.
Swift also hit a tonne a headlines earlier this year for that recorded phone call. Oh dear.
Seeing as four out of Taylor’s five albums have been released in October (the other, 2008's Fearless was released in November), fans thought that it might be time for a new album from the pop superstar. Nope. Nothing. Zilch. Instead, there’s a TV show coming.
Swift also popped up to play live at the US Grand Prix a few weeks ago. So, all things considered, Taylor Swift has been very active despite not having a new album to promote at the moment. Could a new record be lurking around the corner? It’s looking more and more likely as each week goes by.
In other news, Taylor Swift gave everyone a Thanksgiving gift last week in the shape of her own attempt at the Mannequin Challenge. Watch that here.
