The star took to social media today to share the back cover of the album which reveals the six “from the vault songs” that will be included in addition to Taylor’s Version of the original 16 songs that were included on the 2010 album.
“I’m VERY excited to show you the back cover of Speak Now (my version) including the vault tracks and collaborations,” Taylor wrote.
“Since Speak Now was all about my songwriting, I decided to go to the artists who I feel influenced me most powerfully as a lyricist at that time and ask them to sing on the album," she added. "They’re so cool and generous for agreeing to support my version of 'Speak Now.' I recorded this album when I was 32 (and still growing up, now) and can’t wait to unveil it all to you on July 7th.”
Taylor announced the July 7 arrival of Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), to a stadium full of Swifties in May during a Friday night Eras Tour stop in Nashville.
“I first made 'Speak Now,' completely self-written, between the ages of 18 and 20,” she expressed. “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.”
Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) will be the third re-release of six that Taylor has planned in an effort to regain artistic control of her music. It follows Fearless (Taylor’s Version) and Red (Taylor’s Version), which both released in 2021. The album is available to pre-order now at TaylorSwift.com.
