Taylor Swift to release ‘Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)’

Drop everything now (like literally!) because “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)” is rumored to be the next re-recording album to be released by Taylor Swift (aka the music industry).

After the huge success of her tenth studio album “Midnights,” Swift showed no signs of slowing down as she’s been reported to be working on a re-recorded edition of her third studio album, “Speak Now.”

In a recent report by the British newspaper The Sun, an insider was quoted saying: “‘Speak Now’ looks set to be the next album in the ‘Taylor’s Version’ series.”

“Taylor has been quietly in the studio working on remaking both ‘Speak Now’ and ‘1989.’ All details are still being ironed out but Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) should be out within the next couple of months, before she kicks off her ‘Eras world tour,’” they added.

The source then told The Sun that the multi-awarded singer-songwriter is “super focused and works around the clock” for Swifties (Swift’s fans) after “Midnights” broke records.

Shortly after Swifties heard the news, they immediately took to Twitter to share their excitement for the release of “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version).”

Some even reshared some previous theories and Easter eggs they discovered in the music video for “Bejeweled” that hinted “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)” to be the next album to drop.

Of course, the sleuthing didn’t stop there. Fans’ excitement and curiosity were only more fueled after they found out that Swift registered four new songs on the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP), a performance-rights organization, and Sony music registry.

The four songs—titled “Better Off,” “Castles Crumbling,” “Bother Me,” and “Drama Queen”—were speculated to be the possible rejects from the original “Speak Now” album.

Now, Swifties were more curious than ever and generated a slew of theories.

Are these “From The Vault” tracks? How are these songs related to “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)?” These questions remain unsolved for now, but one thing’s for sure: “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)” is definitely coming and we can’t wait to hear them!

Originally released in 2010, “Speak Now” is Swift’s third studio album which she only wrote entirely by herself. The album spawned some of Swift’s hit songs, including “Back to December,” “Dear John,” “Enchanted,” “Long Live,” “Sparks Fly,” and “Mine.” If the rumors are true, “Speak Now” will also be the third re-recorded version, following both “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)” and “Red (Taylor’s Version)” in 2021.

The release of Swift’s re-recorded versions of her past albums is the singer’s response to gain ownership of her old albums after Big Label Machine Records founder Scott Brochetta sold the masters of her back catalog to the label’s new owner Scooter Braun.
