Everyone’s favourite Queen of the Indie Cardigan Taylor Swift is currently re-recording much of her back catalogue, thanks to some recent Music Industry Fun. Following a bit of a teaser of vintage megabanger ‘Love Story’ as part of an ad for Match.com, we’re going to get the full reworking of the track tonight.

Taking to social media, Taylor has announced she’s finished “Taylor’s version” of 2008 album ‘Fearless’, featuring six previously un-released songs.

A statement reads:

“‘Fearless’ was an album full of magic and curiosity, the bliss and devastation of youth. 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 26 songs.

“I’ve spoken a lot about why I’m remaking my first six albums, but the way I’ve chosen to do this will hopefully illuminate where I’m coming from. Artists should own their own work for so many reasons, but the most screamingly obvious one is that the artist is the only one that really knows that body of work. For example, only I know which songs I wrote that almost made the ‘Fearless’ album. Songs I absolutely adored, but were held back for different reasons (don’t want too many breakup songs, don’t want too many down tempo songs, can’t fit that many songs on a physical edition).

“Those reasons seem unnecessary now. I’ve decided I want you to have the whole story, see the entire vivid picture, and let you into the entire dreamscape that is my ‘Fearless’ album. That’s why I’ve chosen to include six never before released songs on my version of this album. Written when I was between the ages of 16 and 18, these were the ones it killed me to leave behind.

“This process has been more fulfilling and emotional that I could have imagined and has made me even more determined to re-record all my music. I hope you’ll like this first outing as much as I liked travelling back in time to recreate it. ‘Love Story (Taylor’s Version)’ will be out tonight.”
