Taylor Swift has re-recorded her second studio album, Fearless. But this time — she’s doing it her way. Fearless: Taylor’s Version has 26 tracks including six unreleased songs. Although there’s no release date (yet), Swift said fans will have it “soon” and the new version of “Love Story” drops at midnight.
Swift announced the news on Good Morning America and then shared on social media. The tweet included a note and sepia toned artwork writing, “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.”
“when i think back on the fearless album and all that you turned it into, a completely involuntary smile creeps across my face. this was the musical era in which so many inside jokes were created between us, so many hugs exchanged and hands touched, so many unbreakable bonds formed. so before i say anything else, let me just say that it was a real honor to get to be a teenager alongside you… i am ecstatic that i’ll get to exPerience a bit of that feeling with you in the near future,” she wrote in the accompanying note.
“this process has been more fulfilling and emoTional than i could’ve imagined and has made me more determined to re-record all of my music. i Hope you’ll like this first outing as much as i liked traveling back in time to recreate it. love story (taylor’s version) will be out tonight.”
See the full note in the tweet below and pay attention to the interesting use of capitalization. There appears to be a hidden message in the note with only “APRNNTH” capitalized throughout. Can we expect Fearless: Taylor’s Version on April 9th? What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
