A night before the rain show in Nashville, Taylor Swift left fans in awe fans by announcing her re-recorded version of her third studio album, Speak Now (Taylor’s Version). Coming during summer on July 7th.

Fans have speculated the order of her albums ever since she announced she’d be re-recording her first 6 studio albums (Debut to Reputation). Ever since the release of her ‘Midnights’ music videos, fans have been pointing out many details in those videos, claiming that she’s teasing Speak Now. These include details like, ‘Enchanted’ playing on a violin during the intro, pressing a purple button with a 3 on it, a clock pointing towards 3, and an instrumental version of ‘Long Live’ from Speak Now. All in ‘Bejeweled’. In the ‘Anti-Hero’ video, she was seen using a teal guitar with koi fish painted on it. Then, in the ‘Lavender Haze’ music video, she was in a ‘fishbowl’ with koi fish swimming around.

Along with the canon release date, Swift announced 6 bonus tracks would be added to the new album along with the 1 original tracks. “I love this album because it tells a tale of growing up, flailing, and crashing, then feeling the need to speak about it,” Taylor Swift stated while announcing the release date for this highly anticipated album. Then shortly after, Swift took to Instagram about the inspiration behind Speak Now. “This time in my life were marked by the song’s brutal honesty and unfiltered diaristic confessions.” Speak Now is in an important album to be released because it is described as her “secret” diary.
