She thanked her fans for their amazing support of 'Cruel Summer,' which was featured on her 2019 album Lover and became her longest-running No. 1 on Billboard for eight weeks on Oct. 7.

The Grammy award winner wrote in her Instagram post, “What a truly mind blowing thing you’ve turned The Eras Tour Concert Film into. I’ve been watching videos of you guys in the theaters dancing and prancing and recreating choreography, creating inside jokes, casting spells, getting engaged, and just generally creating the exact type of joyful chaos we’re known for 😇.”

“One of my favorite things you’ve done was when you supported ‘Cruel Summer’ SO much, I ended up starting The Eras Tour show with it. For old times sake, I’m releasing the live audio from the tour so we can all shriek it in the comfort of our homes and cars PLUS a brand new remix by @lpgiobbi 😜 Thank you, so much, forever, wow, just thank you!!!”

The new versions of 'Cruel Summer' are available to stream and download now. They come before the launch of 1989 (Taylor’s Version), her fourth re-recorded album, on Oct. 27. The album will include five additional songs that she revealed after challenging her fans to solve a word puzzle on Google.

“Can’t wait for you to hear them,” it added.
