Re-recordings of Taylor Swift’s old albums are a gift that keeps on giving, and another one is on the way. Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) is coming our way this summer, and here’s everything you should know about it before it hit the shelves.

Release Date & Cover

Swift teased the release of Speak Now during a recent concert in Nashville and later revealed it will hit the shelves on July 7. She also shared an album cover that shows her wearing a purple dress, reminiscent of the one from the original Speak Now cover.

In Taylor’s Words

Swift also released a touching statement reflecting on the period of her life when she wrote Speak Now, explaining how these years left a mark on her life.

“The songs that came from this time in my life were marked by their brutal honesty, unfiltered diaristic confessions, and wild wistfulness. I love this album because it tells a tale of growing up, flailing, flying and crashing … and living to speak about it,” she wrote in a statement.


Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) will feature a total of 22 songs, including the previously released lead singles “Mine”, “Back to December”, “Sparks Fly”, “Ours”, “Mean”, and “The Story of Us”. She gave us a taste of things to come with a new version of “If This Was A Movie” which was featured on the deluxe version of Speak Now. Re-recording will also feature six additional “from the vault” tracks.
