“My version of Speak now comes out July 7 (just in time for July 9, iykyk,” she wrote on Twitter. “I first made Speak nowcompletely self-written, between 18 and 20 years old. The songs that came from this time in my life were characterized by their brutal honesty, unfiltered diary confessions and wild melancholy.
She continued: “I love this album because it tells a story about growing up, swinging, flying and crashing… and living to talk about it. With six more songs popping out of the vault, I absolutely can’t wait to celebrate Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) with you.”
