The good news seems to never stop for Swifties. Last week, Taylor Swift announced more tour dates for North America in late 2024 after she ends her European leg. Maybe do both? Take a vacation to Europe, see Taylor Swift, and then come back home and see Taylor Swift again? Just an idea.

But while in concert on Wednesday at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, the pop icon told the audience that her late album re-record, 1989 (Taylor's Version), will be released this fall. This will mark Swift's fourth re-recorded LP release. The prior re-records included Fearless (Taylor's Version), Red (Taylor's Version), and Speak Now (Taylor's Version). All those album were hugely successful both in the original versions and the re-releases.

Swift started re-recording her earlier albums soon after Scooter Braun bought Big Machines Records which owned the masters to all of Swift's previous work. Then, according to Swift, Braun tried to restrict what she could perform at the American Music Awards in 2019. To this, Swift must have been like, "Oh, no. No no no no." And she took back the music that belongs to her, well control over the masters, by re-recording her earlier albums.

Taylor Swift to release 1989 (Taylor's Version) this fall

So far, Swift has released all but two of the records that Braun would own the masters to. She will eventually release these albums, Taylor Swift (from 2006) and Reputation (from 2017). Eventually, she will re-record these as well, if she has not already done so, and release them for mass consumption as well.

But here is what we know about 1989 (Taylor's Version) so far. We know the album will be 21 songs long, including five songs from The Vault of unreleased songs Taylor Swift has recorded. The original version featured 13 songs, but the deluxe version had 16 songs. The singles from the album include "Shake It Off," "Blank Space," "Wildest Dreams," and "Style."

1989 (Taylor's Version) will be released on October 27th, and the album is already available for preorder on Taylor Swift's website already. Swift said in a Twitter post that 1989 (Taylor's Version) was her favorite re-record so far. Whether that is true or not, the three-time Grammy Award winner for Album of the Year (the only female solo artist to do that) will be selling tons of her new re-record.
