Taylor Swift’s documentary about her career and the making of her hit album Lover is making its debut at Sundance Film Festival January 23, but the wait for it to make its way to Netflix is shorter than we hoped. The documentary, Miss Americana, will be available to stream on January 31.

Swift performed a medley of her past work in celebration of winning the AMAs first-ever Artist of the Decade award, and the documentary has also since been cleared.

Taylor Swift has begun the festival tour of her Loveralbum, and we are excited to see how she brings her latest project to the stages (especially after witnessing the masterpiece that was her Reputation tour), but we’re even more excited to see how she takes gives her fans access to her career and her life as an icon in Miss Americana. Director Lana Wilson describes this look into Swift’s life as “a raw and emotionally revealing look at one of the most iconic artists of our time 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.”
