Fearless (Taylor’s Version) Debuts at Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart in the UK

Taylor Swift rewrites UK Official Chart history this week as her rerecorded album Fearless (Taylor’s Version) lands at Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart, surpassing a long-held chart record by The Beatles.

The Official Charts Company can confirm that by scoring her third chart-topping album in the space of just 259 days (following Folkore on July 31 and Evermore on December 18), Taylor sets a new all-time record for the fastest accumulation of three Number 1 albums ever.

The record was previously held by The Beatles for 54 years – the band notched up a trio of chart-toppers in 364 days between 1965-1966, with Help!, Rubber Soul, and Revolver.

Fearless (Taylor’s Version) racks up just over 21,000 chart sales to become the star’s seventh UK Number 1 album, and outperforms the Number 5 peak of the original, released in 2008. The entry now places Taylor third among female artists with the most chart-topping albums, behind Madonna (12) and Kylie Minogue (8).

Taylor’s other UK Number 1 albums are: Red (2012), 1989 (2014), Reputation (2017), Lover (2019), Folklore (2020), and Evermore (2020). View Taylor’s Official Chart history in full here.

Meanwhile, Ariana Grande’s former chart-topper Positions rebounds 45 places to Number 4 following its release on vinyl, topping the Official Vinyl Albums Chart, and DMX retrospective The Best Of enters at Number 12 one week after the news broke of the rapper’s death.

Further down, there are new entries for French composer Jean-Michel Jarre’s latest album Amazonia (21), and Roadrunner – New Light New Machine by US hip hop boyband Brockhampton (24).

Taylor Scores Eighth ARIA #1 Album With Fearless (Taylor’s Version)

American superstar Taylor Swift takes out her eighth #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart as she debuts in the top spot this week with Fearless (Taylor’s Version). The album is a re-recording of Swift’s second album, Fearless (#2 Mar. ’09) and is the first of six re-recorded albums Swift plans to release, in response to the master recordings of her back catalogue being sold.

It becomes Swift’s third #1 album in Australia in the last year after folklore (#1 Aug. ’20) and evermore (#1 Dec.’20) and makes her the first artist to have three different albums top the ARIA Charts in a twelve-month period. The 17 weeks between evermore first hitting #1 and the debut by Fearless (Taylor’s Version) breaks the record for least number of weeks between different #1 albums that Swift previously set with the 20 weeks between her last two albums.

Swift’s eight #1 albums now places her second for the record for most ARIA #1 albums by a female solo artist, sitting behind Madonna, who has eleven. She also now sits one release behind Eminem for consecutive #1 studio albums, who has nine.

Taylor Appears On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Taylor Appears On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Taylor Swift appeared on the most recent episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, ostensibly to discuss ‘Fearless (Taylor’s Version)’, her newly-released re-recording of her 2008 album.

As she appeared onscreen, however, Colbert immediately questioned whether album track ‘Hey Stephen’ was written about him, which Swift denied. This served as the setup for an extended joke in which Swift reveals she knows numerous incredibly specific details about Colbert’s life and career.

Swift goes on to display a mood board that she says originally inspired the song, which is covered in images of the late night personality. At long last, she says the song was inspired by novelist Stephen King.

Watch the humorous exchange below:

Taylor Talks To People Magazine About Her Re-recording Efforts On Fearless (Taylor’s Version)

Taylor Talks To People Magazine About Her Re-recording Efforts On Fearless (Taylor’s Version)

We all know Taylor is incredibly dedicated to her work. Recently, Taylor talked to People magazine about her efforts on the re-recording for Fearless (Taylor’s Version). She explains her thought process for each song, even going line by line. You can read the full article below.

“I really wanted to stay very loyal to the initial melodies that I had thought of for these songs,” she tells PEOPLE (the TV Show!)

Taylor Swift wanted her re-released version of Fearless to stay true to its roots.

Talking to PEOPLE (the TV Show!), Swift opens up about the recreation process and how she ensured that Taylor’s Version kept the same essence of its 2008 Grammy-winning original.

“In terms of production, I really wanted to stay very loyal to the initial melodies that I had thought of for these songs,” the 31-year-old tells PEOPLE. “And so we really did go in and try to create a ‘the same but better’ version. We kept all the same parts that I initially dreamed up for these songs. But if there was any way that we could improve upon the sonic quality, we did.”

“We just kind of took all the knowledge that we’ve acquired over decades of playing this music and applied that to it,” she adds. “But yeah, I did go in line by line and listen to every single vocal and think, you know, what are my inflections here. If I can improve upon it, I did. But I really did want this to be very true to what I initially thought of and what I had initially written. But better. Obviously.”

On Friday, Swift released the first re-recording of her six albums with her previous label Big Machine Group. The new album’s version includes six never-before-released tracks that Swift wrote during the same time but were scrapped from the original album.

The day before release, Swift shared snippets of five of her tracks through several outlets, including the album’s title track “Fearless” on Good Morning America. From the new album, Swift had already released “Love Story (Taylor’s Version)” and two “From the Vault” tracks, “You All Over Me” and “Mr. Perfectly Fine.” 

“I’m so ecstatic that my album Fearless (Taylor’s Version) will be out tonight. It’s crazy that it’s finally here,” she said on the morning show.

In November 2020, Swift was legally allowed to re-record her first five albums, which Scooter Braun gained ownership of last year following his $330 million deal with Big Machine Label Group. Swift previously spoke out after Braun sold her masters to a company called Shamrock Holdings for $300 million.

Since leaving Big Machine, Swift signed with Republic Records and Universal Music Group in an agreement to own the rights to her music going forward. In 2019, she released Lover, followed by her two pandemic albums folklore and evermore in 2020.
