Taylor Swift is ready to Speak Now — again — with her rerecorded version of the album.
Originally released in October 2010, Swift’s third album was largely inspired by her growth as a person and artist as she entered adulthood.
“I first made Speak Now, completely self-written, between the ages of 18 and 20,” Swift wrote on Instagram when she announced Speak Now (Taylor’s Version).
“The songs that came from this time in my life were marked by their brutal honesty, unfiltered diaristic confessions and wild wistfulness. I love this album because it tells a tale of growing up, flailing, flying and crashing … and living to speak about it.”
Swift previously teased that each song is meant to serve as “a different confession to a different person.”
In addition to writing songs about her family and her fans, Swift also pens several songs about her public heartbreaks and adversaries.
From “Dear John” to “Last Kiss,” here’s everything Swift has said about the inspirations behind her Speak Now songs.
