Good morning! It feels like a new era has started, doesn’t it? Speak Now is out! Taylor is in New York City and went out to Starbucks to grab her copy according to Just Jared Jr. and USA Today. It’s number one on iTunes just a few hours after its release. Go get it:

iTunes USA

iTunes Canada (Standard Version)

iTunes Canada (Deluxe Edition)

The new version of taylorswift.com is up! I loved the fact that users are referred to as swifties in the new version. Taylor connect also gets an upgrade. It feels less like a separate website now. Other than that, my first interest was going to the Tour/Schedule section. There are some new dates that I didn’t have in the Calendar. As usual, taylorswift.com gets the last word on tour concert dates.

Then we have two dates of TV show appearances. in Japan:

I’m guessing she’s doing a lightning visit to Japan based on the proximity of the dates.

Then we have appearances in the UK, which means expect her back on Fundon in December.

That also means she’s not showing up for the Fox Network first ever American Country Awards on December 6. If she wins, she’ll be accepting via satellite.
