        Pointless release.

        In my head I like to imagine LastDreamer in the land of Lithuania right now with a suitcase of simcards, a box of chocolates and a wedding ring. It would be a great base for an epic Eurovision fan fiction.

                I didn't really get into her until Speak Now, but I'm keen to give this a play.

                I think it's fair to say most of us wish our fave had the kind of work ethic Taylor has. I'd be playing the Myah-free re-release of Britney Jean, in between spins of The Original Doll and Baby One More Time recorded in a lower register.

                Fair play to you, Taylor. You go girl!

                  The original was released 13 years ago (and now I see why she worked on this one first...). So it’s essentially an anniversary edition with a full re-recording and bonus unreleased songs.

                    I think "millions of people" was reaching a bit to be honest.

                    Best get saving those coins, Timmy.

                      I mean no one owns these versions anyway, or has even heard them. It will be interesting to see if it has much of a reach outside her core fanbase, who will lap it up!

                          It's not reaching considering that more than 6 mio. people own the album in the US and probably close to 10 mio. worldwide.
                          I do own a few Taylor Swift albums (not including 'Fearless') and it'd be intriguing to own the 'album of the year 2010', but it's not a priority at the moment ;) .

                            There is no such thing as overexposure for Taylor Swift. The 2020s decade is not even a year and a half in and she already released two studio albums, a live album, and a re-recorded studio album.

                            Looks like she is going to release all the Big Machine albums throughout this pandemic era.

                              Well, the 2020s will be her last decade before turning 40. In other countries, this wouldn't be a major problem, but we know that artists struggle to do well in the US once they are 40+, so she may still want to reach out to the masses while she can. I would love American sweetheart to become the first artist to break the US-American stigma of ageism though.

                                What? As if ageism is only an issue on/in the US music scene/society lol. It plays a role in every Western country, but its impact and form might differ from region to region and from sector to sector (or genre to genre). Also ageism is mostly an issue for women rather than men, also in the US. It is an intersection. And add to that, if she wasn't from the US she would never have been so successful. It is complex, and I don't see her break it at all. Her albums will remain successful to a certain degree, but her single success is already diminishing due to her current market strategies, and it is not gonna get any better with age. She played it 'smart' with Willow and Cardigan, she knew the 'frontloadedness' was her only option. She invests way more in her full albums than anything. She is also overcrowding the single market with a lot of releases. If she really wanted a number 1 that would be a bit of a dumb move. I feel her most recent releases and strategies have shown that single success is secondary now. I don't know why, maybe because of the pandemic? Maybe she didn't feel like she wanted to achieve that goal with her last two new albums? The way she handled the singles off of Evermore and Folklore kinda speak for itself. Maybe it will be different with her next new release, who knows. We can't speak for her, only deduce based on what she has been doing.

                                Also what is this about spending coins for the physical releases of Fearless (TS Ed.)? It is not 2008 anymore. People really don't care about that AT ALL, you do because of the way you approach and purchase music, which is fine as you can do decide yourself how you consume music, but don't project your own social reality on others. It is miles off from how music is being dominantly consumed in the current market. We can assume it will be mostly fans who will buy these physical versions, and she added an extra incentive (6 new songs) to do so. I will. The 'regular' listeners let's say, don't have to pay one cent to hear those bonus tracks, bar maybe an Apple/Spotify or whatever subscription (which they already have).

                                  She sounds very out of breath on the vocals.

                                    I am most excited for the piano version of "Forever & Always" and "Breathe". These are my favorite songs on the original album.

                                    Regarding the ageism thing, I think this fits perfectly:

                                      My heart! Selena was one of the first people to listen to "Fearless" after Taylor finished it in 2008. Truly a full-circle moment. I love their friendship.

                                            I really like the re-recorded version of Love Story, I think that this album will do very well.

                                              If the album goes #1 again, is that some sort of record for her?

                                                  Depends on the market. It's rare for albums to return to No. 1 because of a jubilee edition, but sometimes (especially in smaller markets), they do.

                                                    This release isn't a typical "jubilee" edition, whatever that even means.

                                                    This is a very specific re-recording which would not be happening if it wasn't for her issues with her masters. And therefore cannot be compared to anything that went before, except for maybe Jo Jo re-recorded albums. No artist of the stature of Taylor Swift has ever done something like this before, when they are still at the height of their commercial power.

                                                    Also the only markets where the original Fearless album hit number one were the US, Canada and New Zealand. So the question Can it return to number one only refers to those markets, most likely the US was what was being questioned.
