Taylor Swift To Release “Love Story (Taylor’s Version)” TONIGHT
Singer/songwriter Taylor Swift appeared on Good Morning America today (Thursday, February 11th) to make a big announcement: she is done re-recording her second album, Fearless.
Back in 2019, Swift’s former label Big Machine had been sold, along with the artist’s masters, to Scooter Braun, who had then sold the rights to Swift’s first 6 albums to investors, in a controversial move that Swift called her “worst case scenario.” Not one to get discouraged, Taylor Swift had thus decided to re-record the entirety of her catalogue, in a move to get back control over her old songs.
Today, the 31-year-old announced the first of these re-recordings was ready for the world.

Fearless (Taylor’s Version) will include 26 songs, including 6 never-released-before tracks “written when [Swift] was between the ages of 16 and 18.” The first rollout of her rerecordings will begin at tonight at midnight ET with the new release of her first Billboard Top 10 single “Love Story,” now dubbed “Love Story (Taylor’s Version)”.
Ever the nostalgic, Taylor Swift hid a message in the official statement posted on her social pages. Just like she did in her booklets back in the days, the entire statement was written in lower cases, except for a few letters which read: A-P-R-I-L N-I-N-T-H.
As it turns out, April 9th is the date of the release of Fearless (Taylor’s Version) that you can already PRE-ORDER NOW.

First released in 2008, Fearless is considered to have been Swift’s breakthrough as the artist was manoeuvring from country music to pop music. The album went on to win four GRAMMY Awards, including Album Of The Year.
