What We Know About Taylor Swift’s First From The Vault Song

Taylor Swift is slowly reasserting control over her impressive back catalogue by re-recording and re-releasing her first five albums, kicking off with Fearless (Taylor’s Version), which drops next month, according to Vulture. As Swifties will already be well aware, the singer-songwriter has been working hard in the studio to wrest back ownership of her work following well-documented struggles with former record label Big Machine in general, and Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta in particular (via ET).

Swift’s version of “Love Story” came out in February and, ahead of the full album’s release, the super busy pop star — who released two brand-new albums last year alone — has given fans an insight into one of the new tracks they can expect to hear. She previously teased the re-release, “has 26 songs including 6 never before released songs from the vault” (via Instagram). There’s still a while to go before we hear all of them but, for now, at least we can get excited about this song. 

The new song was originally supposed to be on Fearless

On Wednesday, Swift took to social media to reveal that the first track, due for release at midnight ET on March 25, is called, “You All Over Me (From the Vault).” Tantalizingly, country sensation Maren Morris — she of “The Middle” fame — provides backup vocals on the song. “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,” Swift enthused of the new cut, which is produced by her Folklore and Evermore collaborator Aaron Dessner and co-written by Scooter Carusoe (via Instagram).

As People notes, Morris popped up during the Dallas stop of Swift’s Reputation tour for a spirited duet of “The Middle,” so the musical duo has technically collaborated before. During an appearance on Good Morning America, Swift explained the six new tracks were actually written around the original recording of Fearless, when she was aged 16 to 18, but were held back for various reasons such as “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.” The six chosen tracks, the singer-songwriter explained, “were the ones it killed me to leave behind,” (via ET).
