Happy Friday, Wildcats! After a year off, Falvey Memorial Library is bringing back Weekend Recs, a blog dedicated to filling you in on what to read, listen to, and watch over the weekend. Jenna, a graduate assistant from the Communication department, scours the internet, peruses the news, and digs through book stacks to find new, relevant, and thought-provoking content that will challenge you and prepare you for the upcoming week. This week, student worker Anna Jankowski will be joining her in the search for news!
Miss Americana is back and better than ever. Taylor Swift re-recorded her iconic 2012 album Red and the world is loving it. In the first 24 hours, Red (Taylor’s Version) became the most streamed album in a day by a female with 90.8 million global streams. This weekend, sift through our recommendations below to find out more about the new 30-song album and why it is changing the music industry forever.
If you have 14 seconds… watch this behind-the-scenes Tik Tok from Taylor’s newest music video “I Bet You Think About Me.” The video features Blake Lively in her directorial debut! Then be sure to watch the full 6-minute video featuring Miles Teller.
If you have 3 minutes… scroll through this tap story in the Wall Street Journal that details how Swift’s re-releases are having an actionable impact on the future of the music industry.
If you have 15 minutes… watch “All Too Well: The Short Film” on YouTube starring Dylan O’Brien and Sadie Sink. This film was both written and directed by Taylor Swift and uses her 10-minute version of the song as a background soundtrack.
If you have 2 hours and 10 minutes… listen to Red (Taylor’s Version) on Spotify, Apple Music, or wherever you get your music. And then, if you want more Taylor, listen to the other albums she fully owns, Fearless (Taylor’s Version), Evermore, Folklore, and Lover.
If you have 3 hours and 11 minutes… have a Taylor movie weekend and watch Miss Americana on Netflix, the documentary where Taylor reveals intimate details of her life while showcasing backstage and onstage concert footage, followed by Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions on Disney+, an intimate concert performance of Folklore.
