The Tracklist

Swift always likes to keep her fans, Swifties, guessing for clues on all things pertaining to her music. On April 2, she took to Instagram to post a cryptic video of a vault, where fans would have to unscramble the words that appeared.

Fortunately, Swifties are great investigators and were able to unscramble the words that day. They figured out that those words are her songs “From The Vault”, which are tracks she had written for the original Fearless album that had never been released.

Swift posted the tracklist to her Instagram a day after. The album has 26 songs, with one bonus track called Love Story (Elvira Remix). The list includes songs from the 2008 album, the platinum edition, and six “From The Vault”.

Collaborations

When looking at the tracklist, four songs include other artists. From the original album, Colbie Caillat is featured on Breathe. In a single Swift dropped in March, country singer Maren Morris sings harmonies for You All Over Me.

Keith Urban is also collaborating on the songs “From The Vault”. He’s duetting on That’s When and singing harmonies for We Were Happy. Swift expressed how meaningful it was to have Keith Urban on the album since she was his opening act when Fearless was released.

The Significance of This First Re-recording

As Swift announced on Good Morning America that her contract allowed her to start re-recording her first five albums in November of 2020, many thought that she would go in order and re-record her debut first. In an interview with Republic Records / MCA Nashville, she expressed why she decided to focus on her sophomore album.

“I always gravitated towards Fearless because I think that, as an album, it was a real coming-of-age,” Swift expressed.“And I look back on that album and it fills me with such pride, and it was an album about hope, and lessons learned, and the effervescence of teenage youth and all that. What more fun than to go back and explore that?”

Swift’s Fearless became the first Grammy award in her long career of wins for album of the year in 2010. It’s also been 13 years since the album was released (Swift’s lucky number). The Fearless album seems to have some charms attached to it. Why wouldn’t she record it first?

Where You Can Listen:

You can listen to Fearless on all platforms on April 9th or pre-order a physical copy on Swift’s website.

We can’t wait until the release of Fearless (Taylor’s Version), but until then, we’ll keep replaying her new special version of Love Story.
