Taylor Swift Surprise Releases ‘This Love (Taylor’s Version)’: Look + Listen

In the teaser trailer for the new Prime Video series The Summer I Turned Pretty, Taylor Swift just released her first re-recorded 1989 song, “This Love (Taylor’s Version).”

In response to a deal that transferred the master rights to her music catalogue to Scooter Braun from Swift’s former label, Big Machine Label Group, in August of 2019, the superstar singer/songwriter pledged to re-record her first six albums .

To date, Taylor has released new editions of Fearless followed by Red which landed her 10th No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 and her 10-minute, updated version of “All Too Well” also became the longest song to appear on and top the Hot 100.

Swift’s final full length for Big Machine was Reputation (2017) and two years later, the musician issued her seventh studio album Lover as her debut record for Republic Records and a pair of earthier albums in 2020: folklore and evermore.

folklore won Album of the Year at the 2021 Grammy Awards and evermore was also nominated for Album of the Year at the 2022 Grammys, but it lost to We Are by Jon Batiste.

Earlier this year, Taylor Swift was named the global ambassador for Record Store Day 2022, was the subject of a recently-completed culture course at New York University’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, and she later joined Ed Sheeran for a new version of “The Joker and the Queen” and previewed a song called “Carolina.”

Later this month, Swift is scheduled to receive a Doctor of Fine Arts, honoris causa, from New York University with the graduating class of 2022 at which time she will address students and guests at the school’s commencement ceremony on May 18 at Yankee Stadium.
