Newly re-recorded version features Keith Urban
Taylor Swift has unveiled the full track listing to her upcoming Fearless (Taylor’s Version), re-recorded version of her 2008 sophomore album due April 9th via Republic Records. The album features 27 tracks total, including an Elvira Remix of “Love Story (Taylor’s Version)” as the final track. Six are never-before-heard songs from the vault featuring Maren Morris and Keith Urban. Swift shared the album’s back cover revealing all of the songs on Saturday (April 3rd).
“Here’s the full track list, my friends. I’m really honored that @keithurban is a part of this project, duetting on That’s When and singing harmonies on We Were Happy. I was his opening act during the Fearless album era and his music has inspired me endlessly. I’m counting down the minutes til we can all jump into this brave world together, filled with equal parts nostalgia and brand newness.”
Swift encouraged fans to decode the tracks and Urban’s guest appearance in a video posted a day earlier featuring each track and Urban’s name jumbled.
“The vault door is about to be as unhinged as you’ll think I am after you watch this video,” she shares. “Level: Expert Happy decoding!”
Fearless (Taylor’s Versions) is the first of her six Big Machine Label Group studio albums she’s re-recording since leaving the label 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 in 2019. 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.
