Taylor Swift is set to headline a special Formula One event in October.

The star will perform prior to the race at the Circuit Of The Americas in Austin, Texas.

As Spin points out, the show will take place two years after she released her Grammy-winning album '1989' and four years since its predecessor 'Red'.

If Swift is continuing with releasing an album every two years, the gig could feature new music or come following an announcement regarding a new record.

Circuit Of The Americas president Bobby Epstein told The Guardian, "We had to make it financially irresistible to [Swift], but it is our fifth-year celebration and we have reason to celebrate and sometimes you spend a little bit on special occasions."

Swift will perform after the Grand Prix on October 22.
