Taylor Swift is back at number 1 on the album charts.
She’s dropped the re-rec0rded version of her 2008 album, “Fearless,” which adds unreleased tracks as well. There are 26 tracks on the new album.
This is Taylor’s massive rebuke to former label Big Machine, owner Scott Borchetta, and Scooter Braun, who sold her master recordings for $300 million to an investment firm rather than to her.
The result is that Taylor and her fans are making the original recordings moot, and replacing them with ones she ones.
“Fearless” won’t be the last of these re-recordings. There are three other albums, including the big hit “1989,” which she will no doubt be issuing soon.
Taylor had two massive albums this past year with “Folklore” and “Evermore.” That was a lot of new material, not to mention all the re-records. And you know she’ll have an album of new material sometime in 2021 because she is a music machine right now. It’s an adrenaline rush. Taylor Swift is having her moment.
