Taylor Swift Announces ‘Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)’ Coming Next


Taylor Swift Let her fans in her hometown of Nashville be the first to get the official news: “Speak Now” will be the next album in the “Taylor’s Version” series of re-recorded albums.

Swift gives fans plenty of time to pre-order the violet record: it’ll be out in all formats on July 7th.

“I’m thinking rather than talking about me,” he shouted, “I thought I’d show you, so if you can get your attention,” he shouted as fans realized the long-awaited announcement had arrived. big screens… There, the album art and release date were shown, before Swift debuted “Speak Now” as a surprise track on “Sparks Fly.”

Upon the announcement at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, the city turned purple lights on the nearby bridge over the Cumberland River.

About 10 minutes after making the announcement, he shared on his social accounts. “Now it fills me with great pride and joy to announce that my version of Speak Now will be released on July 7 (just in time for July 9th),” he wrote, using the abbreviation “awk”. The specific mention of this date in the lyrics of “Last Kiss” – believed to be a date when she went to Texas to visit boyfriend Joe Jonas in 2008.)

“I first did Speak Now, which I wrote entirely myself, between the ages of 18 and 20. Songs from this period of my life were marked by their brutal honesty, unfiltered daily confessions, and wild sadness. I love this album because it tells the story of growing up and swinging and flying and crashing… and living to talk about it. I’m definitely looking forward to celebrating Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) with you on July 7th, with six extra songs out of the vault.”

Fans who tuned into Friday’s Nashville show had a pretty strong indication of what was to come. Wristbands handed out to fans at the end of his previous concert last Sunday turned purple, and electronic banners arriving at Nissan Stadium were purple.

The Swifties had long speculated whether “Speak Now” or “1989” would be treated as a re-record plus bonus tracks, and the evidence was increasingly overwhelming in favor of their third album.

The Taylor Nation account went live on Instagram to give fans a minute’s notice of the verbal announcement.

The new cover art shows today’s Swift wearing a dress similar to the one she wore on the front of the original album in 2010, but more seriously, she’s definitely not the posing 20-year-old. Cover of the Big Machine edition.

Swift didn’t immediately release titles or any other information about the bonus “Vault” tracks, except to say there will be six. The total number of 22 songs for broadcast is one product page It went up shortly after it was announced that the LP version would be a three-record set released on “three unique violet marble-coloured vinyl discs”.

So far on the Eras Tour, Swift performs only one song per night from her ‘Speak Now’ album ‘Enchanted’, which is far less than any other album she’s released except her nightly non-representational debut. Rather than lead fans to suspect that he didn’t like the album, this bizarre choice to practically MIA the album on sets that lasted more than three hours raised the expectation that he could wait to add more material from “Speak Now” until he was ready. to announce the re-registration.

Swift made the announcement right after she moved onto stage B for the solo-acoustic “surprise songs” episode, which comes late every night on the tour. Although Swift inevitably used this moment to premiere a song “Speak Now” that hadn’t been played before on the tour, “Sparks Fly” accompanying him on guitar did not spare two surprises for the album. Friday’s second surprise issue was from a different album – “Teardrops on My Guitar” from its debut, perhaps unreasonably performed on piano rather than guitar.

Swift records all new versions of all Big Machine releases so far in “Taylor’s Version”, only “Fearless” and “Red”. New albums became strong sellers, as fans only fulfilled their desire to purchase and release fully owned versions of the records after his general shortage of the Big Machine catalog was sold against his will. The “TV” versions also include several bonus tracks from songs Swift wrote but never released at the time.

“Speak Now” was a landmark album for Swift 13 years ago and was the first and only album where Swift was the sole lyricist on all of her tracks – at the time it was seen as a backlash to cynics who believed the young singer was her co-authors. He must have lifted it heavier on his first two albums. Having made this point, Swift continued to work with collaborators on the next release, “Red.”

The album is also remembered for marking a more determined return to pop from its country origins, though there will be a few more albums before he definitively declares himself a pop artist. It also meant a shift to even bolder songwriting, as with “Dear John,” one of Swift’s most striking raw songs to date. Six Billboard Hot 100-chartered songs from the album: “Mine”, “Back to July”, “Mean”, “The Story of Us”, “Sparks Fly” and “Ours” (the last one has not been released yet) with deluxe extra tracks a version was released with a delay).

While none of the songs on the album reached #1, “Speak Now” debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 with more than one million copies sold in its first week. Big Machine ultimately spent six weeks at #1 and was certified six times platinum.
