Taylor Swift is re-recording Taylor Swift, Fearless, Speak Now, Red, 1989 and Reputation but when will they each come out?

In November 2020, Taylor Swift confirmed that she had begun re-recording her first six albums. Taylor made the decision to do so after a well-publicised dispute with music manager Scooter Braun. In 2019, Taylor's old label, Big Machine Records, sold all of her masters to Scooter. Taylor then opened up about her difficult relationship with Scooter in a Tumblr post.

Since then, Taylor has said that her team tried to negotiate with Scooter to gain ownership of her masters. However, he has resold Taylor's recordings to Shamrock Holdings and Taylor claims that he still profits from her old music. As a result, she has chosen to re-record the masters she doesn't own (everything pre Lover) so that she officially owns her music.

We now have Fearless (Taylor's Version) and Red (Taylor's Version) but here are all the theories as to when she'll release the other albums.

When will Taylor Swift release 1989 (Taylor's Version)?

As it stands, there's currently no confirmed release date for 1989 (Taylor's Version). Fans initially thought that it would be the second rerelease after Fearless (Taylor's Version) because she teased 'Wildest Dreams (Taylor's Version)' in the trailer for Spirit Untamed. However, when the movie came out on June 4, the song was nowhere to be found. (Taylor later released the song in September 2021.)

Taylor later confirmed that Red (Taylor's Version) would be the second re-recorded album, to be released in November. However, she's left multiple 1989 teasers in recent social media posts, interview and music videos, so fans are certain that 1989 (Taylor's Version) will be the third rerelease.

Taylor has also been spotted in New York lately so fans are certain that she is preparing some 1989 content. There are already rumours that Selena Gomez, Katy Perry and the Jonas Brothers could feature on the album.

It's possible that an early to mid 2022 release is likely.

When will Taylor Swift release Speak Now (Taylor's Version)?

As it stands, there aren't any concrete theories as to when Speak Now (Taylor's Version) will come out. It all depends on how much Taylor wants to space out the re-recordings. Based on Red (Taylor's Version), we reckon that a mid or late 2022 release is likely.

Given that Taylor's 'Enchanted' has recently gone viral on TikTok too and reached the top 10 of the US Spotify chart, fans think that Taylor with drop 'Enchanted (Taylor's Version)' very soon.

Fans have also spotted that Taylor has listed signed Red (Taylor's Version) albums on her website for $20.10 in purple writing. Given that Speak Now had a purple cover and was released in 2010, it seems likely that this is a hint that Speak Now (Taylor's Version) could also be in the works.

Will it be release before or after 1989 (Taylor's Version)? Who knows. We'll update this article once we know more.

When will Taylor Swift release Taylor Swift (Taylor's Version)?

Again, there is no word yet on a Taylor Swift (Taylor's Version) release date but we imagine that she will be saving her debut as one of the final re-recordings for fans. Our guess is that it will come out before Reputation, so early 2023 seems like a good bet.

When will Taylor Swift release Reputation (Taylor's Version)?

There legally has to be a five year period before Taylor can release re-recordings of her albums. In other words, the earliest Taylor can release Reputation (Taylor's Version) is November 10th, 2022. November 11th, 2022 is a Friday so we wouldn't be shocked if it comes out then, but she might save it until 2023 if she's spacing out the recordings.
