🎵👻 Spooky Spin: Taylor Swift’s New Speak Now Vinyl or a Soundtrack from the Twilight Zone? 🤔
Swifties were excited for Taylor Swift’s new vinyl re-release of “Speak Now,” but a fan’s recent experience turned the excitement into a horror show. The vinyl, instead of playing Swift’s sweet tunes, churned out bone-chilling British electronica about “endless rows of sardines” and spooky, cryptic messages. The vinyl has since been deemed a manufacturing error, but the question remains: Is it just a vinyl mishap or a ‘cursed’ disk? 🎃👀
Imagine curling up in your cosy room, dimmed lights, ready to drown into the soulful music of Taylor Swift’s re-released vinyl record, Speak Now. Only instead, the mellow melodies are replaced by eerie British electronica and creepy comments about “endless rows of sardines” and a popular 1960s horror series. 😱 Not quite the ‘Fearless’ experience you’d signed up for, huh?
This is the rollercoaster ride Swiftie Rachel Hunter found herself on as she eagerly played her brand-new, orchid-colored vinyl copy of Speak Now. Rachel had anticipated the nostalgic refrains of ‘Sparks Fly’ and ‘Back to December.’ Instead, she was greeted with a haunting male voice asking, “There are 70 billion people on Earth, where are they hiding?” all against a sinister soundtrack. Whoa, talk about a mood swing! 😲
As Rachel recounted to BBC, “At first, I thought maybe the vinyl had a secret message from Taylor. But when I flipped to the b-side it started saying ‘There’s 70 billion people on earth, where are they hiding?’ I started to get a little scared. I was alone and it was late, and my vinyl was playing creepy messages.”
Understandably alarmed, Rachel did what any millennial would do – she turned to social media for help! She posted a video clip of the strange occurrence which quickly went viral, racking up millions of views on both Twitter and TikTok. Because, of course, nothing quite screams internet sensation like a cursed Taylor Swift vinyl. 🤷♀️📀👻
So what was really going on? A haunted vinyl? An elaborate Taylor Swift easter egg? Or maybe a hint of her next big project – Taylor Swift’s House of Horrors? 🏚️🎃
Sadly, or perhaps thankfully for Rachel, it was none of the above. Universal Music Group stepped up to the plate, admitting a manufacturing error that resulted in the Speak Now vinyl getting ‘mispressed’ with rare ’90s UK electronic music. A statement issued read, “We are aware that there are an extremely limited number of incorrectly pressed vinyl copies in circulation and have addressed the issue.”
Those unlucky (or lucky, depending on your taste for horror and odd electronica) to land one of these creepy copies were advised to contact customer service at their respective retailer for a replacement or refund.
So, while it might be fun to indulge in a theory about Taylor Swift’s vinyl records being the new cursed artefacts of the music world, the reality is far less sinister. Or is it? Swift’s music has moved millions and touched hearts in profound ways. If her music holds such power, who’s to say a mispressed record can’t turn your cozy evening into a creepy adventure?
So, Swifties, what do you think? Is this just a harmless manufacturing mishap or are we now entering the Twilight Zone of Taylor Swift’s career? Could a supernatural stint be the next big step for the pop icon? And would you dare to play the ‘cursed’ vinyl, alone, on a stormy night? 💀🌙🎵
