As promised, Taylor Swift has released her re-recorded version of ‘Love Story’. Listen to the song, which first appeared on 2008’s Fearless, below.
“So far, of the ones I’ve recorded, I think it’s been the most fun doing ‘Love Story,'” Swift said in an interview with Good Morning America back in November. She continued, “The older music, my voice was so teenaged and I sometimes, when I hear my older music and my older young teenage voice, it makes me feel like I’m a different singer now. And so, it’s been the most fun to re-record ones that I feel like I could actually, possibly improve upon the song. That’s been a really amazing and fun adventure.”
Swift also went on Good Morning America on Thursday (February) to announce Fearless (Taylor’s Version) and officially launch the campaign to re-record her first six albums. She first revealed her plans to re-record her first six albums back in August 2019, when Scooter Braun bought her masters. Soon after Braun and his media holding company Ithaca Holdings LLC acquired Big Machine Records, the label that released every Swift album up until 2017’s Reputation, she shared a statement on Tumblr claiming that she was never given the opportunity to gain ownership of her masters, hence why she decided to re-record her first six albums.
Fearless (Taylor’s Version) is out April 9 and is available for pre-order in several editions. Last year, Taylor Swift released two albums: folklore and evermore, both of which were made in collaboration with Jack Antonoff and the National’s Aaron Dessner.
