Taylor swift to re-release 'Fearless'

Taylor Swift is set to release an expanded version of her chart-topping album, "Fearless," with six new songs, her label announced. Entitled "Fearless Platinum Edition," the CD/DVD is due on Big Machine Records October 27.  

Among the other extras will be Swift's much-talked about rap music video with T-Pain, "Thug Story" - which aired as comic relief during the CMT Music Awards in June -- and behind-the-scenes photographs from her summer tour taken by her brother.

"Taylor's fans have an incredible appetite for her new music and her ongoing life experiences," said Big Machine president/CEO Scott Borchetta in a statement. "The two million-plus fans who bought Fearless within weeks of release last year are screaming for new Taylor music, and Taylor has delivered."

Since its November 2008 release, "Fearless" has sold 3,789,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It has also spent 43 weeks on the Billboard 200 -- 11 of them at No. 1, the most for any album released this decade.

Swift received four CMA Award nominations this week, including one for album of the year.
