I recorded this album when I was 32 (and still growing up, now) and the memories it brought back filled me with nostalgia and appreciation," she continued. "For life, for you, for the fact that I get to reclaim my work. Thank you a million times, for the memories that break our fall. ??? Speak Now (MY VERSION!) is out now."
