Swift to drop "Love Story" as first re-recorded single
Swift lost the legal rights to the recordings of her first five albums in 2018, when they were bought out from under her by Scooter Braun. But as of November 2020, Swift's contract has allowed her to record her first five albums again— a process that she mentioned back in 2019 she was "very excited about doing."
As People shares, the singer announced on GMA that she's recorded a new version of one of her first hits, "Love Story"! The new version of "Love Story" was first heard in a commercial for dating website Match last year, which led fans to speculate that the full version was coming soon. Swift said that the song will drop on midnight at February 12— and that the rest of the album is on the way!
