To gain ownership over her own work, Taylor Swift intends to re-record and re-release all of the songs previously released under Big Machine Label.

"Love Story" is the first taste that the 31-year-old singer has released. Meanwhile, "Fearless" is expected to release in April.

Those recordings are eligible for new Grammys, according to Billboard.



A Recording Academy spokesperson says "Current eligibility guidelines would allow for the new performances and albums to be eligible if they were recorded within the last five years. However, none of the older songs would be eligible for songwriting awards."
