Taylor Swift has released her new version of ‘Love Story’, but are the lyrics any different to the original?
Taylor Swift has dropped the first of her re-recorded material, with the remaster of ‘Love Story’ marking the beginning of her busy few months of releases while ‘Fearless – Taylor’s Version’ will follow with six new tracks.
‘Love Story’ was originally released in 2009, Taylor’s first official single that put her on the map and in place for global domination.
And as she releases the re-recorded version, life-long Swifties are determined to know if there are any changes to the lyrics.
When fans first got a snippet of Taylor’s updated version of ‘Love Story’ – when it featured in an advert pal Ryan Reynolds created – some Swifties were adamant they heard a change to one of the lyrics.
After the chorus, some fans reckon they heard “baby just said yes,” as opposed to the original “baby just say yes.”
However, it'll be quite literally music to fans' ears to know that none of the lyrics have been changed in the new version of 'Love Story'.
Other than Taylor’s voice sounding a tad more mature, 2021’s ‘Love Story’ sounds just as angelic and enchanting as its original release.
She did explain however that her band were the ones to record the instrumentals this time around.
"One fun thing about rerecording Love Story is that I really wanted my touring band to get a chance to play on this version because you know they spent a lot of years playing this song over and over again," Taylor said.
It’s the first in Taylor’s string of re-releases, with a whole new version of ‘Fearless’ expected to drop in the coming weeks.
Tay’s also gifting fans six never-before-heard tracks which she said never made it to the 2013 album but she kept close to her heart.
