Miss Americana: Netflix announces new Taylor Swift documentary
Netflix has announced that its newest documentary film titled Taylor Swift: Miss Americana will officially be making its debut in early 2020 according to The Wrap. The film will follow the award-winning global artist during a transformational period in her life. Miss Americana will also be having its world premiere on January at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, as part of the recently announced lineup.
Taylor Swift: Miss Americana is a raw and emotionally revealing look at one of the most iconic artists of our time during a transformational period in her life as she learns to embrace her role not only as a songwriter and performer but as a woman harnessing the full power of her voice. Produced by Tremolo Production, the documentary is directed by Lana Wilson (The Departure) with Morgan Neville, Caitrin Rogers and Christine O’Malley serving as producers.
It is unclear whether the documentary will also be featuring Swift’s old songs from her first six albums or not because she was recently swept up in a public feud with her former label Big Machine and Scooter Braun, who currently have full ownership of the singer’s masters. Swift took to Twitter to share a personal statement, asking her fans to persuade Big Machine and Braun to allow Netflix to use her previous hit songs on her upcoming documentary.
Taylor Swift first gained recognition in 2006 when she launched her self-titled debut album which landed the number five spot on the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart for 157 weeks. Since then, Swift has released seven award-winning albums consist of Fearless, Speak Now, Red, 1989, Reputation and the most recent one Lover, which had sold over 500,000 copies during its first week. After 15 years, 10 Grammy Awards and countless hit songs later, Swift has now become a household name in the music industry and a worldwide sensation.
