Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift’s new album, Fearless: Taylor’s Version is ready and will be released soon, the singer announced on Twitter . Swift recorded the album that won her a Grammy in 2008 and made her international breakthrough again because she wants to manage the rights to her music herself.

“I’m happy to announce that my new version of Fearless is ready and will be available soon. It has 26 songs, including six previously unreleased tracks. Love Story is out tonight,” the singer wrote on Twitter .

“I’ve talked a lot about why I’m remaking my first six albums, but the way I’ve done this will hopefully make it even easier for you to understand,” Swift added in an added post. “Artists should own their own work for so many reasons, but the most obvious is that the artist is the only one who really knows the music.”

Swift first announced in 2019 that she would re-record her first six albums following the takeover of her record label by Scooter Braun. Braun took over ownership of Swift’s original recordings after his company took over Ithaca Holdings Big Machine Label Group, the record label that released every Swift album through 2017.

Swift has repeatedly claimed that neither Braun nor Scott Borchetta, the founder of Big Machine and the man who signed her to the label as a teenager, gave her a fair shot at taking ownership of her music. That’s why she chose to re-record her first album.

While Swift doesn’t mention in her tweet when the album will be released, according to Rolling Stone , there is a hidden message in her message indicating that the release date will be April 9.
