Valentine’s Day will come a little before February 14 this year—February 9, to be precise. That’s when the soundtrack to the film, featuring new music from Taylor Swift and Jewel, will be released by Valory Music. The new Swift song, “Today Was A Fairytale,” jumped to No. 1 on iTunes, giving the singer her highest first-day sales to date. American television audiences will get to hear the song January 31, when Swift performs it during the CBS telecast of the Grammys. Jewel’s “Stay Here Forever” is the film’s lead single and just made its official debut on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Chart at No. 67. Valentine’s Day the movie opens nationwide February 12.
