Great news for Taylor Swift's fans! 

The singer's latest album, 'Speak Now ( Taylor's Version)', is finally out. It was released on Friday, 7 July. 

The much anticipated album is a re-recording of Taylor's 'Speak Now' album, which came out in 2010 under Big Machine Records. Taylor is currently re-recording all her music in order to gain full rights to them after Scooter Braun bought the ownership of her first six albums back in 2020. 

Taylor took to Instagram to celebrate her new release. 

"It’s here. It’s yours, it’s mine, it’s ours," she announced on the social media platform.

The American singer-songwriter spoke about the inspiration behind the music. 

"It’s an album I wrote alone about the whims, fantasies, heartaches, dramas and tragedies I lived out as a young woman between 18 and 20. I remember making tracklist after tracklist, obsessing over the right way to tell the story."

Taylor says choosing which songs made it to the track list was not an easy and she added new songs to this new version. 

"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!"

She went on to thank her fans for the support. 

"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," she wrote on IG.
