Taylor Swift is set to perform stripped-down versions of songs from her forthcoming album, Lover, on SiriusXM on Friday, 23 August, the day the record comes out. Swift will also host a Q&A session with a selected group of SiriusXM subscribers, as part of the radio format’s Town Hall special.
The Town Hall will air at 5 pm ET on SiriusXM Hits 1 (Channel 2), as well as the SiriusXM app and web player, with several rebroadcasts throughout the weekend on Hits 1. The performance will also be available as a Pandora Stories.
“This is now the third consecutive time Taylor Swift has visited with SiriusXM on the same day as her new album release and we are once again thrilled to celebrate this moment with her,” Steve Blatter, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Music Programming at SiriusXM, said in a statement.
“Taylor is one of the most prolific and popular artists of our time and we couldn’t be more excited to have her perform some of her new songs and share stories about them with SiriusXM subscribers across North America.”
In addition to the Town Hall special, Swift will also sit down for an interview with Ryan Sampson, Nicole Ryan and Stanley T of The Morning Mash Up. During the weekend of 23 August, she will appear on Hits 1 to count down the top 45 songs in North America as well as the week’s new music premieres.
Lover is Swift’s seventh studio album and it’s the hotly-anticipated follow-up to 2017’s Reputation. The singer began teasing the record in April, with the release of “ME!” featuring Panic! at the Disco’s Brendon Urie. She’s since released two more tracks, ‘You Need to Calm Down’ and ‘The Archer.’
As uDiscover Music reported earlier today, the singer made the news on Sunday night, 11 August when she accepted the first-ever Icon award at the 2019 Teen Choice Awards. At the event, she announced that the album’s title track will drop this Friday, 16 August.
