NEW ALBUM: TAYLOR SWIFT | FEARLESS (TAYLOR'S VERSION)
After her masters were sold to an old foe, Taylor Swift's re-recording project starts with her second studio album from 2008, "Fearless." via Big Machine Records. Originally released when Swift was 18 and centred in country music, the 2021 version was bound to include some changes. Her voice has matured, which works on tracks like "White Horse" and "Fearless," but on the track "Fifteen," it does feel odd when she sings about high school as she is no longer that 18-year-old girl. But, for the most part, most songs sound almost similar to the originals, and the difference is a reminder for die-hard fans of how Swift has developed as an artist through the years. The new release gives fans 27 tracks: All the songs from the original and platinum edition, six previously unreleased tracks from the vault and a bonus song.
