Taylor Swift announces re-recorded ‘Fearless’ album

Fearless (Taylor’s Version) features 26 songs

Taylor Swift has officially announced the re-recorded version of her 2008 sophomore album Fearless. The pop star made the announcement on Thursday (Feb 11th) on Good Morning America, revealing six additional tracks from the vault she wrote between the ages of 13 and 16.

“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,” she shares.

The album’s first single, “Love Story,” drops at midnight ET tonight (Thurs, Feb 11th). A snippet of the true to original re-recording appeared in a Match.com ad late last year.

Fearless (Taylor’s Version) drops April 9th via Republic Records and is available on 2 CD, 3 LP metallic gold vinyl, 2 cassette and digitally. Each will include unique photos and artwork, including a recreation of the original in a sepia tone. The CD will include complete album lyrics with never before seen artwork and photos.

Merch bundles are also available.

Swift first shared she was re-recording her first six studio albums after leaving Big Machine in 2018 and signing with Universal Music Group. Her original masters were part of the sale of Big Machine in 2019 when Scooter Braun’s Ithaca Holdings LLC purchased the label. Braun then sold Swift’s Big Machine catalog masters to Shamrock Holdings for upwards of $300 million last year. Swift has been at odds with the label, founder Scott Borchetta and Braun over the past couple of years as she’s attempted to purchase the masters to no avail while also being caught up in live performing rights of the same songs.
