Taylor Swift Releases Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)

Taylor Swift has released Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), a re-recorded version of her third studio album, Speak Now. Alongside new versions of the 16 tracks originally featured on the 2010 album, the new release includes “From the Vault” songs featuring Fall Out Boy and Paramore’s Hayley Williams. Listen to Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) below.

Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) finds Swift reuniting with Aaron Dessner as a co-producer on several “From the Vault” songs: “Electric Touch,” “When Emma Falls in Love,” and “Foolish One.” Meanwhile, Jack Antonoff co-produced the tracks “Castles Crumbling,” “I Can See You,” and “Timeless” with Swift. The rest of the album was co-produced by Swift and Christopher Rowe.

When the album was released at midnight, Swift reflected on social media about what Speak Now means to her. “It’s an album I wrote alone about the whims, fantasies, heartaches, dramas and tragedies I lived out as a young woman between 18 and 20,” she wrote. “I remember making tracklist after tracklist, obsessing over the right way to tell the story. I had to be ruthless with my choices, and I left behind some songs I am still unfailingly proud of now. Therefore, you have 6 From The Vault tracks! I recorded this album when I was 32 (and still growing up, now) and the memories it brought back filled me with nostalgia and appreciation. For life, for you, for the fact that I get to reclaim my work. Thank you a million times, for the memories that break our fall.”

In 2019, Swift announced that she would re-record her first six albums—from her 2006 self-titled debut through 2017’s Reputation—in order to regain control of her masters. Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) is Swift’s third re-recorded full-length, following Fearless (Taylor’s Version) and Red (Taylor’s Version). Ahead of the full release of Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), Swift previewed “Back to December (Taylor’s Version)” in a trailer for the new season of the Prime Video series The Summer I Turned Pretty.

Swift released Midnights, her latest LP of new material, last year. The singer is currently playing shows in North America on the Eras Tour, which continues through 2024 with stops in the United Kingdom, Europe, Japan, Singapore, and Australia.
