Taylor Swift’s fifth album leaks online before release
Los Angeles: Singer Taylor Swift’s upcoming fifth studio album ‘1989’ has leaked online, three days before its official release.
While, the 24-year-old singer is yet to make a comment on the matter, her fans took to Twitter to express their anger, reported Us magazine.
The leaked Zippyshare.com file, which was appropriately titled ‘albumsgonnaleakleakleakleakleak.rar’, seems to have come from France, as certain track’s titles were listed as numbered ‘pistes’, which means tracks in French.
Swift performed new songs ‘Out Of The Woods’ and ‘Shake It Off’ for 15,000 fans on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ on October 23. Her fans bashed leakers and pledged to not listen to the album until its official release.
“I refuse to listen to ‘1989’ until Monday. As far as I’m concerned, listening to the leak is disrespectful to @taylorswift13 #Swifties,” one fan tweeted, while another said, “I swear to god if I see one more person threatening to leak 1989 I will hurt them.”
Bill Werde, former Billboard editor, pointed out on Twitter, “The Taylor Swift album leak isn’t trending on Twitter. And I think it’s because her fans are so loyal they won’t tweet it. That’s awesome.”
