Taylor Swift is releasing her Netflix documentary Miss Americana at the end of the month.

The film, which stars Swift, tells the story of her life as a songwriter, performer and as a woman using the full power of her voice.

Directed by Lana Wilson, Swift's 10-time Grammy and 29-time American Music Award career will be watched in this way for the very first time.

The release date comes after a time of uncertainty, as it seemed possible that the documentary wouldn't be released at all, after Swift's feud with music manager Scooter Braun.

Braun, who manages artists including Justin Bieber, acquired the copyright to Swift's first six albums after buying her former record label, Big Machine Records, according to the Independent.

He initially declined the use of music for the film, but last month Variety confirmed that the music rights had been cleared "in a timely manner".

Swift also claimed he would only let her use her music if she agreed to stop talking about him in public.

The singer's upcoming documentary has been highly-anticipated by fans, after Swift was crowned 'Woman of the Decade' by Billboard.

She was the first recipient to do so, and gave a lengthy acceptance speech, where she addressed her ongoing feud with Braun over the rights to her music.

"Thank you for a magnificent, happy, free, confused, sometimes lonely but mostly golden decade," she said. "I'm honoured to be here tonight. I feel very lucky to be with you, thank you so much."
