Taylor Swift May launch her own online music service

Taylor Swift has filed trademarks to launch a service that may offer music downloads and content, EW has learned.

Should the 27-year-old pop star ultimately launch a digital music hub, it could resemble services maintained by the likes of Pearl Jam, Phish, and Bruce Springsteen, which those artists use to distribute their own concert recordings and rarities.

Swift has had a complicated relationship with the music streaming services. When she released her most recent album, 1989, in late 2014, Swift declined to offer it on platforms like Spotify — and went a step further when she subsequently pulled the rest of her catalog from streaming services.
