At this point, it is safe to state Taylor Swift has mastered the element of surprise. Her last two albums — 2020’s Folklore and Evermore — were both published on the exact same afternoon or within the week were announced online. Subsequently, in February, she struck the internet with the statement she was re-recording her 2008 record Fearless. Now, on Wednesday (April 7), Swift gave the world”Mr. Perfectly Fine,” a previously unreleased single which will show up on the new version of the album.
Though Swift is preparing to release the re-recording of Fearless on April 9, titled Fearless (Taylor’s Version), which does not mean she doesn’t have a couple more tricks up her sleeve. She took to Twitter this morning to share the new song, and we all have our internal goblin voices to thank you for it. “Me in 2020: life is chill, writing songs based in fiction to avoid drama, feeling pretty grown up,” she composed . “My 2008 music from the vault, in a goblin voice: ‘REELEEEEEEASE MR PERFECTLY FIIIIIIINE! ”’
“Mr. Perfectly Fine” is one of six unreleased tracks”from the vault” that will be included on Fearless (Taylor’s Version). The dreamy country-tinged pop single takes aim at a guy who looked too good to be true while they were dating but ends up”perfectly fine” with somebody new after the brutal breakup. “Hello Mr. Perfectly fine / How’s your heart after breaking mine?” Swift queries from the lyrics. “Hello Mr. Casually cruel / Mr. Everything revolves around you / I’ve been Miss Misery since your goodbye.”
Though the song is rumored to be approximately Joe Jonas, that hasn’t stopped his spouse and celebrity Sophie Turner from enjoying it. She published a picture of the tune on her Instagram narrative and wrote:”it’s not NOT a bop.” Taylor replied in kind, sharing Turner’s story on Instagram and composing :”forever bending the knee for the [queen] of the north.”
This isn’t the first song Swift’s unveiled from Fearless (Taylor’s Version) before its release; she released the poignant, banjo-twanging country heartbreak anthem”You All Over Me,” containing Maren Morris, on March 26. Last week, she shared the official tracklist for the album which includes a total of 27 tunes and fresh collaborations with artists like Colbie Caillat and Keith Urban.
Swift is now in the process of re-recording all her albums that were released prior to 2019’s Lover in a bid to get possession of her own songs following her master recordings were bought and afterwards re-sold by preceding management. Her very first re-recording of her beloved 2008 single”Love Story” premiered in February.
