A Big Machine rep says the plan was conceived long before the June 30 announcement about Scooter Braun's purchase of the Nashville-based label.
In celebration of the 13th anniversary of Taylor Swift’s self-titled debut album this October, Big Machine Records is rolling out the vinyl release of five songs featured on the 2006 project. On Wednesday (July 10), Big Machine Records sent an email to Swift fans revealing that a select number of “Teardrops on My Guitar” vinyl records will be available for purchase for a limited time.
“Act fast! We just released a Limited Edition 7” Vinyl of ‘Teardrops On My Guitar’ with Acoustic B-Side Recording!” the email states. For $10, Swift fans can get their hands on the vinyl of her sophomore single, which will ship Aug. 30. The announcement adds that the limited-edition merchandise, available through Big Machine’s website, will also include an acoustic performance from 2007 not previously available on vinyl.
It marks the second song made available following Swift’s debut single, “Tim McGraw,” which will also be released vinyl on Aug. 16. After Big Machine alerted fans of its availability June 20, the pressing quickly sold out, according to a label representative, who declined to specify the quantity available.
