– Taylor Swift announced today she would work with Mix Me In2, a music technology by Atlanta-based Fried Green Apps, to develop an iPhone App.
Executives from the company will be on hand Sunday 6/13 at Swift's 13-hour meet and greet as part of the Country Music Festival in Nashville to unveil Mix Me In2 Taylor Swift. Fans can use the app to create hundreds of different versions of their favorite songs. They can remove or change instruments. They can mix themselves into the music by replacing existing instruments and vocals with their own.
"I love playing music, and I love creating music," Swift said. "And, as somebody who is also a big music fan, I always love finding acoustic versions of my favorite songs. I think Mix Me In2 will be a great way for fans to have fun interacting with my music and to listen to new versions of my songs."
Each song in Mix Me In2 Taylor Swift comes with five new versions: rock, acoustic, urban, piano, and coffee house. The will cost $2.99 and comes with two of Swift's biggest hits, Love Story and You Belong With Me. Additional songs will cost $1.99 each.
Fans can upload their versions of the songs to TaylorSwift.com and share them via Facebook and Twitter.
"It's more than an iPhone app," said Grammy-winning producer Dallas Austin, a key player in the creation of Mix Me In. "It turns every music fan into a music producer."
