Taylor Swift has once again shocked the world with yet another sudden surprise. On Feb. 11, the famous pop star announced on “Good Morning America” and later in a social media post that she is re-releasing her 2008 studio album “Fearless.”

In her post, Swift wrote, “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.”

The first single off the new “Fearless” album, “Love Story (Taylor’s version),” was released Feb. 12. The date of the official re-release of “Fearless” has not been explicitly stated, but Swift hinted at April 9 in her post through strategically capitalized letters.

Additionally, Swift mentioned that she will remake the other five studio albums, all so she can take her fans on the full ride she had wanted all those years ago. This is suspected to be due to the sale of her first six studio albums by music agent Scooter Braun.

Braun bought Swift’s previous label “Big Machine” in 2019. In a secret deal, Braun later sold Swift’s first six studio albums without her permission, sparking Swift’s motives (read more here: Why is Taylor Swift re-recording her albums? Scooter Braun drama explained! (hitc.com))

The album release will include 26 songs, including six that remained in her vault for reasons seemingly related to her previous label and/or manager.

In the post, Swift said the six songs she will release did not make it on the first “Fearless” album due to a number of different reasons that “seem unnecessary now.”

Personally, I am already looking forward to the next 25 songs and the remaining five albums that will follow. Go listen to “Love Story (Taylor’s Version)” out now!
