Taylor Wednesday 'Surprise Announcement' on 'Good Morning America'


In the past year, Taylor Swift gave fans Folklore, its sister project Evermore and revealed that she's re-recording her first six albums in an effort to control her own masters. But she's not done with the treats yet.

Good Morning America revealed in a tweet on Wednesday (Feb. 10) that the superstar will be making a "surprise announcement" on Thursday's episode, which airs at 7 a.m. on ABC. The accompanying 10-second teaser didn't reveal any additional information, featuring only an acoustic guitar instrumental.

It’s been a big few months of “surprise announcements” from Taylor Swift, with the pop superstar teasing another for tomorrow.

But according to superfans, it’s unlikely to be another new album, or news of her engagement, as previously speculated.

Swifties on Twitter immediately began speculating what the big surprise could be, with the most popular theory being the release of Swift's re-recorded Fearless cut, "Love Story," just in time for Valentine's Day.

Swift first teased the new version of "Love Story" in December, with a snippet featured in an ad for dating site Match written by Ryan Reynolds.

"Okay so while my new re-records are NOT done, my friend @VancityReynolds asked me if he could use a snippet of one for a LOLsome commercial he wrote so...here’s a sneak peak of 'Love Story'!" she tweeted at the time.

US morning show Good Morning America revealed Swift will appear on the show tomorrow to break some news, which many are convinced will be the completed version of her re-recorded track Love Story.

The 31-year-old star revealed she was re-recording her entire back catalogue after her heated stoush with Scooter Braun last November.

In December, she gave fans a sneak-peek at the new version of Love Story, which first appeared on her 2008 album Fearless, via a hilarious dating website ad featuring Ryan Reynolds.

Swift recently opened up about her experience re-recording her first six albums after the rights were sold by her former record label Big Machine on Good Morning America.

“I’ve been having a really good time re- recording my older music,” she said.

“It’s been the most fun doing Love Story, because the older music … My voice was so teenaged and sometimes when I hear my older music and my young teenage voice, it makes me feel like I’m a different singer now.

“It’s been the most fun to go back and re-record ones that I feel like I can actually, possibly improve upon.

“So that has been a really amazing, fun adventure.”

The rights to Swift’s early albums were owned by Scooter Braun after he acquired Big Machine.

At the time of that deal, Swift said she was “sad” and “grossed out” and accused Braun, a prominent industry talent manager, of being behind “incessant, manipulative bullying”.

In November it was announced he had sold the rights to a private equity firm in a deal reportedly worth more than $400 million.

Tomorrow’s announcement comes just two months after she released her second surprise album of 2020.

In December, Swift sent the internet into overdrive when she dropped her ninth studio album, evermore, just five months after her first isolation album, folklore.

Both have been released via Universal Music Group, and have been met with critical acclaim.
