Taylor Swift’s third rerecorded album Speak Now comes out on July 7 and drives the audience wild as usual. The 33-year-old pop singer started remaking her earlier albums in 2021 and is now halfway through the project. Taylor stated that her original label Big Machine Label Group (BMLG) had been sold to the industry executive Scooter Braun’s Ithaca Holdings for $300 million in 2019. She also lamented the fact that her music industry went under the control of someone who tried to pull it down.

Taylor Swift’s decision to remake her earlier albums met with instant success and eagerness of the audience who expressed their enthusiasm to enjoy the new vocals and also buy merchandise. Speak Now, which is Taylor Swift’s debut album is long anticipated to be the No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Her first two re-recorded albums, Fearless and Red have already shattered the precedence set by Barbra Streisand, Bruce Springsteen, and many others. Fearless, the re-recorded version was the first in history to secure the first position on Billboard charts, and Red, when it first came out topped the list of most-played albums in a day by a female pop singer. Taylor is likely to re-record her next albums, 1984 and Reputation following it, the date of their release hasn’t yet been declared though.
The first re-recorded album, Fearless, recreating its original version came out in 2021. In this album, the song “Tim McGraw” was listened to on a large scale and was accredited platinum, and the track “Picture to Burn” was in the top 10 list for four weeks straight. Then came Red (Taylor’s Version), which was earlier selected for Album of the Year at the 2014 Grammy Awards. The re-recorded version of Red included the most acclaimed 10-minute track “All Too Well”.
