Taylor Swift just started the process of releasing the re-recorded versions of her albums, and she’s explaining why she’s starting with her 2008 album, Fearless.
After dropping her first re-recorded song, “Love Story (Taylor’s Version),” on Friday (February 12), Taylor opened up in an interview for Republic Records / MCA Nashville.
“Deciding on what album to re-record first was pretty easy for me,” she revealed.
“I always gravitated towards Fearless because I think that, as an album, it was a real coming-of-age. 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?” she said.
“I think that I tried to keep it as close to the original as possible, and the additional songs that I’ve added are songs that I think add insight into what the album almost was, because every time you make an album, you leave some songs off, and I think it’s really cool that the fans will get to have the full picture this time around,” she added.
