LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) – Taylor Swift’s re-recorded version of her debut album “Fearless” comes with bonus tracks taken “From the Vault,” and the singer announced Wednesday morning that “You All Over Me,” the first such song, will arrive Thursday night at 12 a.m. ET.
Swift also revealed that the song features country star Maren Morris on vocals, and was produced by her “Folklore” and “Evermore” collaborator Dessner.
“HI. I wanted to let you know that the first ‘From the Vault’ song I’m releasing from Fearless (Taylor’s Version) comes out tomorrow at midnight eastern,” Swift wrote on social media. “It’s called ‘You All Over Me (From The Vault).’
“One thing I’ve been loving about these ‘From The Vault’ songs is that they’ve never been heard,” she continued. “So I can experiment, play, and even include some of my favorite artists. I’m really excited to have @MarenMorris singing background vocals on this song!! ‘You All Over Me’ is produced by Aaron Dessner and co-written by Scooter Carusoe – can’t wait for you to hear it.”
The entire re-recording project came about after the rights to Swift’s first six albums were acquired by a coalition led by Justin Bieber manager Scooter Braun, which then sold them just over a year later. Regardless, it inspired Swift to re-record all of those albums — she will own the rights to the new recordings,– beginning with “Fearless”; she released the new version of her first hit, “Love Story,” shortly before Valentine’s Day.
She has also revealed that the new version of the album, which drops next month, will include six songs “From the Vault,” of which “You All Over Me” is the first. Considering the presence of new collaborators, presumably, these are re-recorded versions of outtakes from the album’s sessions, or possibly songs that were written around that time but not completed.
