“Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)” Is Everything Fans Dreamed Of And More

Finally, Taylor Swift’s long-awaited reworked album Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) has been released. And there’s a lot to unpack.

13 Years Later…

After many Easter eggs, speculations, and conspiracy theories, Speak Now released to the world on July 9th. The acclaimed album is a whopping 1 hour and 44 minutes long and it is quite a whirlwind of emotions. Swift wrote the original album beginning when she was only 18 years old, back in 2010. The stories that she creates within the lyrics, paired with her youthful vocals were the soundtracks to many Swifties at pivotal points in their lives. Now, having Fearless rereleased 13 years later gives fans the chance to experience the album again for the first time. The perspectives have changed, but the essence of each song is everlasting even after remaining dormant for all these years. The album grew up alongside so many fans; it’s a childhood best friend, a security blanket, condensed into 22 songs.

“I first made Speak Now, completely self-written, between the ages of 18 and 20. 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.”

-Taylor said about Speak Now via social media

Taylor Swift Shares Tracks From The Vault

Not only did Swift rework the entire album, but she also included 6 tracks from the vault. These include songs like “Electric Touch” featuring Fall Out Boy and “Castles Crumbling” featuring Hayley Williams of Paramore. We could tell you about the themes explored in the album, but Taylor explains it best herself. Here’s what she had to say about Speak Now on its release date:

“It’s here. It’s yours, it’s mine, it’s ours. It’s an album I wrote alone about the whims, fantasies, heartaches, dramas and tragedies I lived out as a young woman… I remember making tracklist after tracklist, obsessing over the right way to tell the story. I had to be ruthless with my choices, and I left behind some songs I am still unfailingly proud of now. Therefore, you have 6 From The Vault tracks! I recorded this album when I was 32 (and still growing up, now) and the memories it brought back filled me with nostalgia and appreciation. For life, for you, for the fact that I get to reclaim my work. Thank you a million times, for the memories that break our fall. Speak Now (MY VERSION!) is out now.”
