Deadline Hollywood reports:
A major moment in music got underway this week, as Taylor Swift’s re-recording of her 2008 album Fearless made its debut. It’s now Fearless (Taylor’s Version) and it’s off to a promising start.
The complete album will be released in April, but the first single, Love Story, has been downloaded more than 10,000 times since its Friday bow, according to MRC Data. Just three songs sold more this week.
The release is the first volley in an ongoing war between Swift, who wants to get back her master recordings of the old material, and the current rights holders, Shamrock Capital. They acquired the rights from Ithaca Holdings, owned by artist manager and Swift’s arch-enemy, Scooter Braun.
