Swift, Taylor: Fearless (Taylor's Version) LP
Taylor Swift presents a colored vinyl 3LP pressing of Fearless (Taylor's Version), a re-recorded edition of her second studio album Fearless. Originally released in 2008, the new edition marks the first of six re-recorded albums Swift plans to release. The album features multiple collaborations with her Folklore and Evermore collaborators Aaron Dessner and Jack Antonoff. In addition to newly recorded versions of the 19 tracks originally included on the deluxe edition of Fearless, the new album includes the 2010 song "Today Was a Fairytale" (first released on the soundtrack for the romantic comedy Valentine's Day) and six additional songs "From the Vault." "Fearless was an album full of magic and curiosity, the bliss and devastation of youth," Swift shared. "It was the diary of the adventures and explorations of a teenage girl who was learning tiny lessons with every new crack in the facade of the fairytale ending she'd been shown in the movies. I'm thrilled to tell you that my new version of Fearless is done and will be with you soon. It's called Fearless (Taylor's Version) and it includes  songs." "Musicians rerecording their back catalog following behind-the-scenes label disputes is an age-old music industry story," writes Rolling Stone. "But there is little precedent for an artist undertaking the endeavor in as high-profile a manner as Swift, who has leapt into this project with the big-budget ambition and creative fervor usually reserved for a blockbuster album. In doing so, she's positioned unromantic industry pragmatism as a retrospective celebration of her creative life: part die-hard fan treat, part legacy-artist archival reissue – think: The Bootleg Series (Taylor's Version) – and part told-you-so pet project."
