19 Feb Taylor Swift Announces Rerecorded ‘Fearless’ Album is Finished
Set to release on the 9th of April, this album will feature 26 songs as opposed to the 2008 original, which contained 19. In addition to evergreen favorites like “You Belong With Me” and “Fifteen”, “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)” will also include six previously unreleased gems, which were all written by Swift between the ages of 16 and 18.
“These were the ones it killed me to leave behind.” she confessed.
For Taylor, re-recording this iconic album is a first step in reclaiming the rights to her own music, after they were sold to Scooter Braun back when she was still with the Big Machine Records label.
Not one to surrender to the vices of the music industry, Swift is determined to re-record her other early albums, “Taylor Swift”, “Speak Now”, “Red”, “1989” and “Reputation” as well, in coming years.
First to be re-released is the single, “Love Story”, a true middle-school dance staple. The official lyric video for the newly re-recorded Love Story is now out, featuring not only sharper acoustics but also a more confident and mature Taylor than the original. The video, displaying photos of a young Taylor with fans, is guaranteed to make you smile with its sheer unfiltered wholesomeness.
Safe to say that our love story with Taylor’s music will clearly last evermore.
