After breaking records with her previous two albums last year, Taylor Swift is feeling “fearless.” The singer revealed in 2019 that she’d be able to begin re-recording her musical catalog in November 2020 and when that time finally came, she didn’t slow down. Swift has officially announced that her new version of sophomore album, Fearless, which will also be known as Fearless (Taylor’s Version), is completed.
In a message to fans, Swift mentioned how during the Fearless era, many inside jokes were created between her and the fans, so many hugs exchanged and hands touched, many unbreakable bonds formed. “Fearless was an album full of magic and curiosity, the bliss and devastation of youth, it was the diary of the adventures and explorations of a teenage girl who was learning tiny lessons with every new crack in the facade of the fairytale ending she’d been shown in the movies.”
Swift went on to say she wanted fans to have the whole story, see the entire vivid picture and let them into the entire dreamscape that is her Fearless album.
I’m thrilled to tell you that my new version of Fearless (Taylor’s Version) is done and will be with you soon. It has 26 songs including 6 never before released songs from the vault. Love Story (Taylor’s Version) will be out tonight. Pre-order now at https://t.co/NqBDS6cGFl 💛💛 pic.twitter.com/Vjyy2gA72O

The album will have 26 songs, including six never before released songs from the vault., songs that killed Swift to leave behind that were written between the ages of 16 and 18. Swift also announced that “Love Story (Taylor’s Version),” which was first heard during a Match commercial from Ryan Reynolds, will be out tonight just in time for Valentine’s Day!
Fearless (Taylor’s Version) is available to pre-order now, along with brand new, limited edition merchandise. There is no release date yet (though fans have already started pointing out that the random capitalization in the message spell out April Ninth), but Swift says the album “will be with you soon.”
“Love Story (Taylor’s Version)” releases tonight!
