The wait is over: February 12th Taylor Swift officially released their new version of Love Story, just one track from their upcoming album Fearless (Taylor’s version).
Taylor’s newly recorded version of “Love Story” stays true to the original and is now available to streamed on Spotify and Apple Music. Additionally, a lyric video, seen below, has been shared on YouTube and includes throwback footage and images of the star posing with fans. She first debuted a clip of the track in December during a commercial for the dating service Match made by her longtime friend Ryan Reynolds.
To celebrate the song’s release, she posted a photo of herself on social media playing the piano with her hair flying. “My new version of Love Story (Taylor’s version) is out now,” she said, adding two emojis with yellow hearts. “Get it now when you pre-order Fearless (Taylor’s version).”
The Grammy winner teased the Fearless hit on February 11 with a long love letter to fans posted on social media.
“When I think back to the Fearless album and everything you’ve made of it, I can’t help but smile,” said Taylor. “This was the musical era where so many inside jokes were made between us, so many hugs were exchanged and hands touched, so many unbreakable bonds were formed.”
Not only did she announce that “Love Story” would debut on February 12th at midnight, but she also confirmed that the new version of Fearless would include six songs never before released.
