Mr. Excellent: Taylor Swift surprise releases second ‘from the vault’ song 

It’s safe to say Taylor Swift has mastered the element of surprise. Her last two albums — 2020’s Folklore and Evermore — were both released either on the same day or within the week were announced online. Then, in February, she broke the internet with the announcement she was re-recording her 2008 album, fearless. Now, on Wednesday (April 7), Swift gave the world “Mr. Perfectly Fine,” a previously unreleased single that will appear on the new version of the album.

‘Mr. Perfectly Fine” is one of six unreleased tracks “from the vault” that will be included on Fearless (Taylor’s Version). The dreamy country-tinged pop single aims at a man who seemed too good to be true while they were dating but ends up “perfectly fine” with someone new after the brutal breakup. “Hello, Mr. Perfectly fine / How’s your heart after breaking mine?” Swift questions in the lyrics. “Hello, Mr. Casually cruel / Mr. Everything revolves around you / I’ve been Miss Misery since your goodbye.” 

Though the song is rumored to be about Joe Jonas, that hasn't stopped his wife and actress Sophie Turner from enjoying it. 

She posted an image of the song on her Instagram story  and wrote: "it's NOT a bop." Taylor replied in kind, sharing Turner's story on Instagram and writing: "forever bending the knee for the [queen] of the north." 

This isn’t the first song Swift’s unveiled from Fearless (Taylor’s Version) ahead of its release; she released the poignant, banjo-twanging country heartbreak anthem “ you all over me,” featuring Maren Morris, on March 26. Last week, she shared the official tracklist for the album, which includes 27 songs and new collaborations with artists like Colbie Caillat and Keith Urban.

Swift is currently in the process of re-recording all of her albums that were released before 2019’s Lover to gain ownership of her own music after her master recordings were purchased and later re-sold by former management. Her first re-recording of her beloved 2008 single “ love story” was released in February.
