Fearless (Taylor’s Version) is the first of Taylor Swift’s rerecorded albums, which she created to regain ownership of the six albums she created under Big Machine Records. It includes a new version of every song on Fearless Platinum Edition, along with standalone single “Today Was a Fairytale” and six songs she cut from the original 2008 Fearless album.
On February 11th, 2021, Swift appeared on Good Morning America to announce her re-recording of “Love Story”, which came out that night at midnight, and Fearless.
Later that morning, Swift posted a letter to fans on Instagram, thanking them for their support and expressing her excitement about the project. For her first five albums, she left hidden notes via capitalized letters in her album booklets, and she continued this tradition to hide the message “April Ninth” in the note, revealing the release date.
