Taylor Swift Single Rush Released Following Leak

Late yesterday (8/4) Big Machine Label Group announced the rush release of “Mine,” the debut single from Taylor Swift’s upcoming third album, Speak Now, following news that a low-quality MP3 of the song had been leaked. 

As the song began to spread virally, the label, citing “overwhelming fan demand” and a desire “to ensure that Taylor’s fans were able to hear the single as she intended,” immediately made the song available at iTunes and sent the track to radio digitally via Play MPE.

“Mine” was originally scheduled for release on August 16. Within the first couple of hours of its release to country radio, the song had already jumped into the Top 35 on Billboard’s Top Country Songs chart.

Speak Now is scheduled to be released on Big Machine Records on October 25 and contains 14 tracks, all written solely by Swift. The singer co-produced the project with Nathan Chapman.

Starting on August 20, Speak Now will be available for special pre-sale on the site www.SpeakNow13.com. “Mine” is currently available at http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/mine-single/id385990165.
