Taylor Swift has been leaving clues left, right and centre that lead us all to believe that 'Speak Now' is the next re-rerecording on the cards!

At the start of the year, she released an Easter egg-ridden music video with 'Lavender Haze' which first raised fans' suspicions, and now she's given us our first look at the re-imagination of her third studio album!

To commemorate the beginning of her Eras Tour, Taylor dropped four songs with one of them being the first 'Speak Now (Taylor's Version)! So when is the re-release of the 2010 album coming?

When is Taylor re-releasing 'Speak Now'?

It's reported that Taylor could be releasing 'Speak Now' whilst she's on tour, which began on March 18 so an announcement could be coming anytime soon!

It's speculated that the songstress has already finished recording the LP, and fans got their first listen when she dropped 'If This Was A Movie' the day before The Eras Tour began, the song was originally on the deluxe edition of 'Speak Now'. However, she did not unveil the reimagined album artwork with the release.

An insider told this publication that the pop icon's third-ever album will be getting the ‘Taylor’s Version’ treatment next, they said: "Taylor has quietly been in the studio working on remaking both Speak Now and 1989. All details are still being ironed out but Speak Now Taylor’s Version should be out within the next couple of months, before she kicks off her Eras world tour."

'Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour' commenced on March 18 and so far the dates announced run up until August, international legs of the tour are yet to be announced.

Theories fly that '1989', which originally came out in 2014, will be released either at the same time or shortly after as both records are rumoured to be ready to go!

“Many other artists would have paused to enjoy the success she has seen with Midnights but Taylor is super focused and works around the clock for her fans," the source continued.

So we could be treated to another TV album in no time at all...? Fingers crossed!

Swifties have also been circulating theories online about when ‘Speak Now - Taylor’s Version’ could be released, with one TikTok user theorising that it could drop on August 3rd.

Following Easter eggs including photos of Taylor holding an upside down phone in ‘Anti-Hero’ and ‘Vigilante Sh*t’, which are the third and eighth tracks on her ‘Midnights’ album, the fan decoded the date as Thursday, August 3rd, which will also be Taylor’s first night in Los Angeles for her ‘Eras Tour’.

So, what's the significance of this date? Well, on August 3rd, 2010, Taylor released her single, ‘Mine’, which the fan thinks could allude to Taylor wanting to release her own recordings at midnight that evening after making the announcement to fans during the show.

The day of release, August 4th, will also be National White Wine Day, which she has been dropping Easter eggs about in recent months.

Have a watch of the theory below!
