Taylor Swift on Thursday announced the release just hours away of the newest version of her hit song "Love Story (Taylor's Version)," one of 26 tracks on her newly rerecorded album "Fearless (Taylor's Version)."
The 31-year-old also said that extremely successful album's lead single "Love Story (Taylor's Version)" would come out at midnight.
"The way I've chosen to do this will hopefully help illuminate where I'm coming from," Swift said in a statement posted on social media. "This process has been more fulfilling and emotional than I could've imagined and has made me even more determined to re-record all of my music."
"I'm so excited to share with you that tonight, at midnight, I'll be putting out my version of my song 'Love Story,' which was originally on my album 'Fearless,'" Swift said.
"I've now finished rerecording all of 'Fearless,' which will be coming out soon. My version of 'Fearless' will have 26 songs on it because I've decided to add songs from the vault, which are songs that almost made the original 'Fearless' album, but I've now gone back and recorded those so that everyone will be able to hear not only songs that made the album but the songs that almost made it. The full picture!"
The original "Fearless," released in 2008, was the second studio album by Swift, who has risen from a country music singer who often opened for others to a US pop star in her own right.
The Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, who in November was voted artist of the year for the sixth time at the American Music Awards, also told her millions of followers on Twitter and Instagram about the new album.
She included a peek at the cover, a sepia photograph of her upper body, eyes closed and quickly turning her head so that her blond hair streams out behind her.
"It has 26 songs, including 6 never before released from the vault. Love Story (Taylor's Version) will be out tonight," @Taylorswift13 said on Twitter.
In a unique attempt and for the first time in the history of world music, 197 musicians from all over the world will gather to form an orchestra.
The statement said Swift's US and Brazil shows will take place next year, explaining that tickets for those shows "will transfer to a new show date without action on the part of ticket holders." The new dates will be announced this year,
