  • Paul McCartney has revealed that Taylor Swift moved around the release date for evermore to accommodate him.
  • Paul explained that Taylor emailed him about her secret album saying she would move the release date so as not to clash with his projects.

Paul McCartney has revealed that Taylor Swift moved around the release date for ninth album evermore to try and accommodate him.

In an interview with Howard Stern, the former Beatles member spoke about working with the Rolling Stones back in the day and how they would discuss release dates for their projects so as not to clash with one another.

Paul then went on to say that Taylor Swift did the same thing with him when it came to her evermore album.

"I did the Rolling Stone [magazine] cover with Taylor Swift, and she just emailed me recently, and she said, 'I wasn't telling anyone, but I've got another album'," Paul said.

The singer then explained that Taylor was planning on releasing music on 10 December but found out Paul had a project coming out on the same day. She then moved her release to 18 December, and when she found out Paul would be releasing something on the 18th, moved her album date again.

While Paul was not quite sure of the exact dates, it was the sweet gesture from Taylor that gave an inside glimpse into the relationship between artists and how they sometimes work together to help each other out.

Taylor ended up releasing evermore, which was a complete surprise to fans, on Friday 11 December, two days before her birthday.
