Taylor Swift’s surprise announcement
GMAs tweet on Wednesday afternoon, ‘TOMORROW ON @GMA: @taylorswift13 has a new surprise announcement to make — and she’s making it tomorrow exclusively on GMA! Make sure to tune in to hear the news!’ It caused many Taylor’s fans suspected that she might be finally releasing some of her ‘re-recordings,’ which she has been working on for the past year.

Swift has been rerecording her music released from 2006 until 2014 after her entire Big Machine Label Group catalogue was sold to Scooter Braun in 2019. It was allegedly without her permission or knowledge. Taylor’s albums seemingly hijacked catalogue of music are Taylor Swift (2006), Fearless (2008), Speak Now (2010), Red (2012), and the ever-popular 1989 (2014).
Although the catalogue was re-sold to Shamrock Holdings, The Grammy Award winner can ‘rerecord’ her songs, as per her contract, according to EW. ‘It’s re-recordings!!! It’s a LOVE STORY FOR VALENTINE’S DAY!!!! I SWEAR IT HAS TO BE!!!!‘ expressed one Twitter user enthusiastically, while another wrote: ‘LOVE STORY IS COMINGGG‘
The theory appears not without reason. It was because Taylor gave a sneak peek at the Love Story re-recording in December when it appeared as the backing track for the Ryan Reynolds-directed commercial for Match.com. Aside from some potential re-recordings coming their way, some fans guessed that she might be releasing another album. A tweet showed ‘new album weeeee’ while another noted that fans ‘don’t need another album’ because their ‘hearts have been ripped out enough’ by her two most recent releases.
Last year in July, Taylor surprised her fans by dropping a full-length album without any notice. It was Folklore, which became the soundtrack to many people’s quarantines. Just six months later, Swift decided to do the whole ‘surprise’ release all over again by unleashing Evermore, another full-length record, onto her unsuspecting fans. Despite their great guesses, Swift fans will have to wait until Thursday morning for the big reveal.
