Good news for Taylor Swift fans! The singer will make her entire back catalog available on all streaming services.

The 'Shake It Off' hitmaker famously removed her music from streaming services in 2014, slamming companies for not paying artists proper royalties during free trials. 

But Taylor's management team announced on Thursday she has had a change of heart. 

"In celebration of 1989 selling over 10 million albums worldwide and the RIAA’s 100 million song certification announcement, Taylor wants to thank her fans by making her entire back catalog available to all streaming services tonight at midnight," her team said on social media.

While fans are celebrating, many are speculating that Taylor's return also has something to do with the fact that her nemeses Katy Perry will be dropping her new album, 'Witness', on Friday.

Katy reignited their feud in May by releasing her 'Swish Swish' single, which many believed was a response to Taylor's 'Bad Blood' song about her. 

Others believe her move is not calculated at all, and is proof that streaming services are the way forward for the music industry. 

Streaming services have also changed their stance on royalty payments during free trial periods.

But with all Taylor's music becoming available around the same time Katy's album drops, things could get ugly.

Katy Perry is currently enjoying major airplay with hits like 'Chained to the Rhythm', which is currently at number 17 on the Coca-Cola Top 40

But Taylor fans could rush to stream some of their old favourites, which means Katy's album debut could take a backseat to all the records Miss Swift is most likely about to break!
