Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) is almost here. As a Taylor Swift fan, I feel like I’ve been cutting down the days, hours, and minutes until it’s in my hands.
Until then, there’s a lot to get prepared for. Whether you’re headed to the Eras Tour or just want to dive back into Speak Now with fresh eyes, there’s a bit of history with this album as it is a re-released version.
Whether you’re a new Taylor Swift fan, have been since the beginning, or just need a refresher, we’ve got you covered. As July 7th gets ever closer, I’m even more excited to listen to Speak Now (Taylor’s Version.)
While Speak Now is going to have a release day, it’s always nice to pay homage to the original but not listen because we support Taylor Swift owning her own albums around here.
When was Speak Now by Taylor Swift originally released?
Speak Now by Taylor Swift is one of those albums I remember listening to when it first came out and loving it. Then again, it might seem like the album came out that long yet you might be surprised to know its release date. Originally, Speak Now by Taylor Swift was released on October 25th, 2010.
Looking back, that means Speak Now will be 13 years old in October which makes sense why Taylor would revisit it now. 13 is her lucky number although the original album featured 14 songs and 3 bonus tracks which were “Ours,” “Superman” and “If This Was a Movie.” If you’ve been following this entire thing, “If This Was a Movie” was moved over to the Fearless era.
Other than that, Speak Now is going to be the same album we’ve loved and enjoyed for years. Of course, we can’t forget about the upcoming vault tracks which include collabs with Fall Out Boy and Hayley Williams which sounds delightful.
Regardless if you were introduced to Taylor Swift in this era or just love these songs, it’s hard to believe Speak Now will turn 13 in October. It feels like I was just putting this one on my iPod and listening to it in rotation with the Jonas Brothers. We won’t get into how those two are connected but thankfully, we only have a few more days to wait.
Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) will be released on July 7th, 2023.
