Taylor Swift finishes re-recording Grammy-winning second album Fearless; singer to also release new version of Love Story
Taylor Swift's announcement included a cryptic message hinting Fearless: Taylor’s Version will debut on 9 April.
Last year, Taylor Swift gave us a lot of new music. This year it will be old — the pop star has announced she’s dropping the first of her re-recorded albums.
Swift said online on Thursday that Fearless: Taylor’s Version is finished and “will be with you soon,” featuring re-recorded songs from Swift’s sophomore album, Fearless.
The new set will have 26 songs — the original album had 13 — and also contain six never-before-released songs, tunes which “almost made”to the album. She said listeners will get a chance to hear the collection in all its “whimsical, effervescent, chaotic entirety.”
Swift will also release a new version of her song 'Love Story' from Fearless on Thursday at midnight, just in time for Valentine’s Day weekend.

Swift has vowed to re-record her first six albums after music manager Scooter Braun announced that his Ithaca Holdings company had acquired Big Machine Label Group, the home to Swift’s first six albums. He then sold Swift’s catalogue without the singer-songwriter being given a chance to acquire her masters.
Fearless was written when Swift was between 16-18 and earned Swift her first Grammy Award. The re-recorded version is likely to be embraced by her fans and push the original recordings lower in searches.
Swift hasn’t announced when Fearless: Taylor’s Version will be available but a statement she posted on Twitter included a hidden message using only the capital letters which reads: April Ninth.
About the stuffed new recording, Swift wrote: “I’ve decided I want you to have the whole story, see the entire vivid picture, and let you into the entire dreamscape” that is the Fearless album.
“This process has been more fulfilling and emotional than I could’ve imagined and has made me even more determined to re-record all my music,” she added.
In 2020, Taylor dropped two albums — Folklore and Evermore.
