Taylor Swift announced Thursday on social media that “Fearless: Taylor’s Version” is finished and “will be with you soon,” featuring re-recorded songs from her sophomore album, “Fearless.” Fearless was written when Swift was between 16-18 and earned the artist her first Grammy Award.
The new version of the album will have 26 songs — the original album had 13 — and also contain six never-before released songs, tunes which “almost made” the album. Swift also revealed that she dropping a new rendition of “Love Story,” the first of her re-recorded songs, at midnight, just in time for Valentine’s Day weekend.

Swift vowed to re-record the songs from her first six albums after music manager Scooter Braun’s Ithaca Holdings company acquired Big Machine Label Group, the home to Swift’s first six albums. He then sold Big Machine Label Group, and Swift’s catalogue, a private equity company called Shamrock Holdings. Swift was allowed to begin re-recording on Nov. 1, 2020. These albums include “Taylor Swift” (2006), “Fearless” (2008), “Speak Now” (2010), “Red” (2012), “1989” (2014), and “Reputation” (2017).
