It will then play every half-hour for two hours afterward.
Swift tells Billboard the song is about a "a love that you've got to hide because for whatever reason it wouldn't go over well. I spun it in the direction of 'Romeo and Juliet'; our parents are fighting. I relate to it more as a love that you cannot really elaborate on -- a love that maybe society wouldn't accept [or] maybe your friends wouldn't accept."
"Fearless" is available to pre-order in several incarnations. Among them is an edition limited to 10,000 copies, in which fans can contribute a picture of themselves for the packaging.
Also available is a $75 boxed set featuring a t-shirt, leather bracelet, photo album and sticker. One purchaser of this version will win a trip to see Swift in concert as well as an autographed guitar.
Swift is winding down a run of support dates for Rascal Flatts and will perform tonight in Camden, N.J. The artist's self-titled solo debut has sold 3.38 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
