Taylor Swift teased the release date of her remade Fearless album on Thursday February 11th, and it might be here sooner than the public thinks. Talking to social media, Swift revealed she’s finished re-recording her 2008 record album, fearless,  with six additional songs and it will be released “soon.” The public is on the lookout for any clues as to when the album will drop. Fans are thinking the album may drop on the same day it did in 2008, but who knows. Taylor swift has had so many albums that have gone globally viral, but she says, “This just may be the best to come, who knows.” 


Many fans noticed major clues in her grammy winners note to her followers, she wrote “when I think bAck on the fearless album and all that you turned into, a completely involuntary smile creeps across my face,” she began. “this was the musical era in which so many inside jokes were created between us, so many hugs exchanged and hands touched, so many unbreakable bonds formed.” Fans say she highlighted the letters A-P-R-I-L, further down in her letter, spelling out an upcoming month in 2021. Fans are thinking that it’s possible the new album could just be released on April 9th, considering Swift has a history of dropping her albums on Fridays. If that really is the release date for Fearless, that means there’s less than two months to go before fans can hear six bonus songs that didn’t make it onto the original album.


Taylor added that she has always had the 6 bonus songs getting released, “in the back of her head” but she never had the courage or the time through the years to really put the pieces together and write the final songs, but she said these songs were heartfelt so, “that’s why i’ve chosen to include six never before released songs on my version of this album. written when I was between the ages of 16 and 18, these were the ones it killed me to leave behind.” Fans now knowing these new additions to the album are on the edge of their seats.


“It’s going to be fun, because it’ll feel like regaining freedom and taking back what’s mine,” Swift told Billboard in 2019 of rerecording her catalog. “When I created these songs, I didn’t know what they would grow up to be. Going back in and knowing that it meant something to people is actually a really beautiful way to celebrate what the fans have done for my music. So before I say anything else, let me just say that it was a real honor to get to be a teenager alongside you.” Fearless, back in 2008,  was Swift’s first album to top the Billboard 200 chart, spending 11 non consecutive weeks at number 1. The album also earned Swift her first Grammy Awards, including album of the year; she later won the same award with 2014’s 1989, and could win her third album of the year trophy next month with Folklore. Swift says that she is more excited than words can explain, maybe even more than the fans, and she is ready to get this album out to the public more eager than ever.
