Swift song leaks out, gets released early
Wednesday, August 4, 2010
– Taylor Swift's new single Mine
was released to radio and iTunes today - 12 days early - because it was leaked online.
The song is a guitar-driven country track from her upcoming disc, "Speak Now," due out Oct. 25.
"An unauthorized low-quality mp3 file of the single appeared online earlier today," Swift's publicist said. "As the low-quality file started to spread virally, the decision was made to rush release Mine to iTunes and country radio to ensure that Taylor's fans were able to hear the single as she intended."
Her publicist said that within "the first couple of hours of its release to country radio, Mine had already jumped into the Top 35 on Billboard's Top Country Songs chart."
Swift will perform the song Sept. 1 on the ABC special "CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock."
