Taylor Swift is preparing to release a brand new, re-recorded version of her 2008 album, Fearless.
Fearless (Taylor’s Version) will include 26 tracks, including six brand new, never before heard songs.
“This process has been more fulfilling and emotional than I could’ve imagined and has made me even more determined to re-record all of my music,” Swift wrote in a note to fans. “I hope you’ll like this first outing as much as I liked traveling back in time to recreate it.”
While Swift did not share a specific release date for the project, she did reveal plans to release the first re-recorded song: “Love Story (Taylor’s Version).” The track will be released on Thursday night (Feb. 11).

The superstar previously announced plans to re-record each of her albums released between 2006 and 2017 by Big Machine Label Group in 2019 after she acquired her master recordings from Scooter Braun.
Fearless was Swift‘s first No.1 album and spawned hits such as the title track, “Love Story,” “White Horse” and “You Belong With Me.” The project also earned Swift her very first GRAMMY Awards, including Album of the Year.
