Taylor Swift is Fearless Again

Taylor SwiftThe year is 2008. You pop Taylor Swift’s Fearless into your CD player, and you hear the snare drum that commences the album’s titular song.

Flash forward to 2021, and the singer has re-recorded her second studio album after a copyright dispute with her old record label, Big Machine Records. She released Fearless (Taylor’s Version) on April 9. The album artwork features 31-year-old Swift recreating the iconic Fearless hair flip.

The 2021 re-recorded album comes equipped with not only all the tracks and bonus songs from the original album, but also six “vault songs.” Altogether, the album comes out to 27 tracks on two discs. The “vault songs” were written for the 2008 album but did not make the final cut. They include “You All Over Me,” “Mr. Perfectly Fine” (my personal favorite), “We Were Happy,” “That’s When” (featuring Keith Urban), “Don’t You,” and “Bye Bye Baby.” These songs give off the perfect Fearless vibes, featuring the acoustic, country-pop sound that defines the beloved, Grammy-award-winning album.
