Speaking to TODAY, Lautner was asked how he felt about Taylor Swift‘s upcoming rerecording and release. He replied, saying he thinks it’s “a great album,” adding that he feels “safe” about its release or the potential of unreleased material about him.
Lautner was the subject of Taylor Swift’s ‘Back To December’ following their break up in 2009, while John Mayer was the subject of fan favourite ‘Dear John’. In ‘Dear John’, Swift spotlighted pair’s age gap “Dear John, I see it all, now it was wrong/Don’t you think 19 is too young to be played by your dark twisted games, when I loved you so?”
Taylor Swift announced the ‘Taylor’s Version’ re-recording of her third album, ‘Speak Now’ earlier this month during a Nashville stop of her ongoing ‘Eras’ tour. She revealed through a video played onstage that ‘Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)’ will be released on July 7.
