Paramore’s Hayley Williams On Taylor Swift Legitimately Owning ‘Speak Now’

Hayley Williams of Paramore shared some news in one of her most recent Instagram posts. Williams, sharing a picture of Taylor Swift from her early years, congratulated her for finally legitimately owning her third studio album, ‘Speak Now’. The description said:

“Taylor was the first industry friend I ever made and hung out with outside of work things. When Speak Now dropped, I bought my friend’s record (as you do!) and listened to the whole thing in my first car, sitting still in the driveway. It’s my favorite Taylor Swift album for so many reasons. I wish I could go back to this moment on my 21st birthday and tell her one day, she’ll legitimately own Speak Now, and we’ll get to sing together on one of the songs. Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) is out July 7th.”

Swift had to re-release the original tracks from ‘Speak Now’ since she wasn’t given a chance to buy her own masters. The singer, according to SB Projects owner Scooter Braun, needed to sign another contract, requiring her to record six more albums under the label in exchange for the masters of the first six, which she considered ‘unacceptable.’

Getting ready to release the new version, the album will have the re-recorded tracks, along with a new track called ‘From The Vault’, featuring Williams and Fall Out Boy.
