Taylor Swift’s Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) was released on July 7 & has rapidly become a global sensation. In the first few days of release, this re-recorded version sold nearly 575,000 equivalent album units in the United States, according to Laminate. However, Taylor Swift’s fans were in for a creepy surprise when she attempted to listen to the singer’s brand new vinyl re-recorded Speak Now version. Rachel Hunter eagerly played Taylor Swift’s Speak Now’s brand new, orchid-colored vinyl disc to hear re-recorded versions of tracks like Sparks Fly and Back To December. The spooky and menacing British electronica, on the other hand, took her by surprise. The first song had frightening references to “endless rows of sardines” and the 1960s horror series The Outer Limits.

The Earth is populated by 70 billion people; where are they hiding?” a deep masculine voice inquired. “Where are they?” I wondered while eerie music hummed in the background. Initially, Rachel Hunter believed the vinyl contained a secret note from Taylor. But as I went to the B-side, it started shouting, ‘There’s 70 billion people on the planet, where are they hiding?’ I began to feel apprehensive. I was alone, it was late, and my record player was broadcasting disturbing messages.” Rachel Hunter also posted the footage to social media, asking her followers, “Who is this?” Please assist me!” On Twitter and TikTok, the video has now received millions of views.

According To Fans, Taylor Swift’s New Speak Now Vinyl From Is ‘CURSED’

A Taylor Swift fan in Staffordshire was shocked to hear what happened when she tried to play her brand new, orchid-colored vinyl copy of Taylor Swift’s Speak Now. Rachel Hunter was met with a selection of dark and scary British electronica instead of Swift’s re-recorded versions of Back To December and Sparks Fly. The opening tune referenced “flakes of flesh” and “endless rows of sardines,” while another sampled the cult 1960s horror series The Outer Limits. In a world of 70 billion people, where are they hiding?” “Where are they?”Over a dark, droning synthesizer, a husky male voice asked. According to Hunter, at first, she thought there might be a secret note on the vinyl. However, as he flipped to the b-side, he found the following message: “There are 70 billion people on the planet, where are they?” “I began to feel apprehensive. “I was alone, it was late, and my record player was broadcasting disturbing messages.” Hunter had intended to shoot an “unboxing” video for her new buy. However, as she discovered the manufacturing issue, she immediately published her discovery on social media.

“Who is this?” she inquired, her voice cracking. “Please help me!” By Wednesday, the video garnered 3.6 million views on TikTok and over 1.5 million views on Twitter. Internet detectives began to piece together what was going on, determining that both of the tracks Hunter had heard were from a UK collection called Happy Land (A Compendium Of Electronic Music From The British Isles 1992-1996). Hunter has posted many follow-up videos since her first went viral, including one in which she varies the speed of her record player to demonstrate that the initial audio wasn’t falsified. However, she has not heard from any other fans who have experienced the same problem. It appears to be the only one that has been found as far as I know.” “It’s likely to be a collector’s item,” Hill concurs. “I attempted to purchase two!” “All I want is a copy of it.” Swift’s album was issued by Universal Music, which has no ties to Above Board, the distributor of Happy Lands. Both firms, however, employed the French pressing plant MPO to produce their CDs.
