TAYLOR SWIFT MOVED 'EVERMORE' RELEASE FOR PAUL MCCARTNEY: Taylor Swift moved the release date of evermore as a courtesy to Paul McCartney. The Beatle told Howard Stern that the two discussed the release dates of their forthcoming albums while shooting a Rolling Stone cover together. Swift had to adjust her launch date twice to avoid debuting her second album of 2020 on the same day as McCartney III. McCartney said she originally planned to release evermore on December 10th but switched to the 18th because she thought that was his release date. “And then she found out we were coming out on the 18th so she moved back to the 10th. So I mean, you know, people do keep out of each other’s way. It’s a nice thing to do.”
