Taylor Swift Drops New Previously Unreleased Song From 2008

Taylor Swift Drops New Previously Unreleased Song From 2008 TheatreArtLife
By Michelle Sciarrotta

Taylor Swift has once again excited fans with an unexpected song release ahead of her new album release Fearless which is due to go live on 9th April.

Mr. Perfectly Fine

Taking to Twitter to make the announcement, Taylor Swift quipped:

The new song Swift released on 7th April without prior warning is titled Mr. Perfectly Fine and is sweetly labelled as being ‘from the vault’ which refers to the unheard nature of the track – the previously unreleased offering is in fact from way back in 2008.

Not only is the new single ‘from the vault’, but Swifties can look forward to other material from the same period on the new album; a track titled You All Over Me (feat. Maren Morris) is also available to fans who pre-order the new collection.

Pre-order here.

Fearless – Taylor’s Version

The new album Fearless – Taylor’s Version is a reference to the re-recording of many of the tracks that people have come to know and love, but that have been newly rearranged by the singer. Following an arduous battle with her record label about ownership of the recordings to her previous work, Swift took a stand and made the decision to record new versions of her older songs, so that she would own these recordings.

Additionally, the narrative around these re-recordings has been an interesting one – now that Swift is more experienced and looks back in hindsight, she has openly stated that she’s happy she’s been through this process, as it’s enabled her to realise her original visions of what she had actually wanted the songs to be – but had been ultimately directed against by those who had the final say in the past.

Fearless consists of a mix between ‘Taylor’s Version’ tracks and those ‘from the vault’ which is a pleasant merging of old-meets-new. Revisiting unreleased material, as well as rearranging unfulfilled visions must have been a very cathartic and empowering process for Swift, and there is much anticipation on what direction the tracks will take.

Official Lyrics

Mr. perfect face

Mr. here to stay

Mr. looked me in the eye and told me you would never go away

Everything was right

Mr. I’ve been waiting for you all my life

Mr. every single day until the end I will be by your side

But that was when I got to know

Mr. change of heart

Mr. leaves me all alone I fall apart

It takes everything in me just to get up each day

But it’s wonderful to see that you’re okay

Hello, Mr. perfectly fine

How’s your heart after breaking mine?

Mr. always at the right place at the right time, baby

Hello, Mr. casually cruel

Mr. everything revolves around you

I’ve been Miss misery since your goodbye

And you’re Mr. perfectly fine

Mr. never told me why

Mr. never had to see me cry

Mr. insincere apology so he doesn’t look like the bad guy

He goes about his day

Forgets he ever even heard my name

Well I thought you might be different than the rest

I guess you’re all the same

Because I hear he’s got his arm ‘round a brand new girl

I’ve been picking up my heart

He’s been picking up her

And I never got past what you put me through

But it’s wonderful to see that it never phased you

Repeat chorus

So dignified in your well pressed suit

So strategized

All the eyes on you

Sashay away to your seat

It’s the best seat

In the best room

Oh, he’s so smug

Mr. always wins

So far above me in every sense

So far above feeling anything

And it’s really such a shame

It’s such a shame

Cause I was Miss here to stay

Now I’m Miss gonna be alright someday

And someday maybe you’ll miss me

But by then you’ll be Mr. too late

Goodbye, Mr. perfectly fine

How’s your heart after breaking mine?

Mr. always at the right place at the right time, baby

Goodbye, Mr. casually cruel

Mr. everything revolves around you

I’ve been Miss misery for the last time

And you’re Mr. perfectly fine

You’re perfectly fine

Mr. look me in the eye and tell me you
