For my fans: Taylor Swift had some good news for her 151million Instagram followers early on Wednesday morning. The pop singer shared that she has newly recorded music coming out soon
She shared, ‘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, 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!! ☔️ Produced by Aaron Dessner and co-written by Scooter Carusoe – can’t wait for you to hear it.’
In February Swift finished re-recording her second album Fearless.

The 31-year-old star – who had previously revealed plans to release new versions of her early records after Scooter Braun’s Ithaca Holdings bought the writes to her back catalogue – surprised fans with an exciting update on the reworked edition of her 2008 LP.
Taking to Twitter, she wrote: ‘I’m thrilled to tell you that my new version of ‘Fearless (Taylor’s Version)’ is done and will be with you soon.
‘It has 26 songs including 6 never before released songs from the vault. Love Story (Taylor’s Version) will be out tonight.’
The album is available for pre-order, and a hidden message in an accompanying note suggested it could drop in April.

In a lengthy statement, she added: ‘Artists should own their own work for so many reasons, but the most screamingly obvious one is that the artist is the only one who really *knows* that body of work.
‘For example, only I know which songs I wrote that almost made the Fearless album. Songs I absolutely adored, but were held back for different reasons (don’t want too many breakup songs, don’t want too many down tempo songs, can’t fit that many songs on a physical CD).’
However, now Taylor is ready to deliver ‘the whole story’ to her passionate fanbase.
She said: ‘I’ve decided I want you to have the whole story, see the entire vivid picture, and let you into the entire dreamscape that is my Fearless album.
‘That’s why I’ve chosen to include 6 never before released songs on my version of this album. Written when I was between the ages of 16 and 18, these were the ones it killed me to leave behind.

The Cardigan singer felt ‘so honoured’ to take the accolade for her record ‘Folklore’ ahead of albums by Jhene Aijo, Black Pumas, Coldplay, Jacon Collier, Haim, Dua Lipa, and Post Malone at the ceremony
‘This process has been more fulfilling and emotional than I could’ve imagined and has made me even more determined to re-record all of my music.’
This comes after Swift won the coveted Album of the Year at this year’s Grammy Awards’.
The Cardigan singer felt ‘so honoured’ to take the accolade for her record ‘Folklore’ ahead of albums by Jhene Aijo, Black Pumas, Coldplay, Jacon Collier, Haim, Dua Lipa, and Post Malone at the ceremony in Los Angeles.
During her acceptance speech, Taylor paid tribute to her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, and also her friends Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, as well as their children, James, six, Inez, four, and Betty, 17 months, who are namechecked on the record.
After thanking those she worked on the album with, she said: ‘Joe, who is the first person I play every single song that I write and I had the best time writing songs to you in quarantine.
‘I want to thank James, Inez, and Betty, and their parents, who are the second and third people I play the songs that I write.’
Taylor then went on to express her gratitude for the support of her loyal fans. She said: ‘Mostly, we want to thank the fans. You guys met us in this imaginary world we created and we can’t tell you how honoured we are, and to the Recording Academy, we’ll never forget that you did this, thank you so much.’
Earlier in the evening, Taylor sang from the roof of a cabin for her first Grammy Awards performance in five years. The performance began with the star lying in the grass and singing ‘Cardigan’ up to the audience, before the camera panned out to reveal she was on top of the cabin in a forest setting, with her collaborators Jack Antonoff and Aaron Dessner inside, ready to move into ‘August’, on which she also played guitar. The short set closed out with ‘Willow’.
