Olivia Rodrigo is "so excited" for the upcoming release of Taylor Swift's re-recording of her landmark Fearless album.

The "Drivers License" singer gushed to Capital FM that she can't wait to hear how Swift has re-worked her 2008 sophomore release, which will feature indelible hits like "You Belong With Me," "Love Story," "Fifteen" and the title track.

"I literally am going to have a listening party with all my friends," Rodrigo promised. "It's gonna be incredible. I just think that she's such a great artist and it's actually such a blessing in disguise that she, you know, unfortunately, cannot get her masters back and has to re-record them... it's such a silver lining that we get all these other amazing songs. So, I'm so excited!"

When interviewer Jimmy Hill noted that Swift has said she's a fan of Rodrigo's as well, the 18-year-old High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star could hardly keep it together.

Scrunching up her face, Rodrigo said, "Oh my God... that sounds crazy to say out loud. Taylor's been really lovely and so welcoming of me. I feel really lucky to be in an industry at such a young age where I get to walk through so many of the doors that she's opened. [I'm] really, really lucky to have her as a mentor."

Rodrigo was among the many stars who weighed in on "You All Over Me," the first "From the Vault" song Swift has released so far from the Fearless re-recording. The song -- written in 2008 during the Fearless sessions but never before recorded or released -- includes backing vocals from Maren Morris and was produced by Swift's Folklore/Evermore collaborator  The National's Aaron Dessner and co-written by Scooter Carusoe.

"You All Over me is one of six never-before-released songs from the vault on Fearless (Taylor's Version), which is due out on April 9. Back in January, Rodrigo couldn't believe that breakthrough hit "License" was on the charts next to Swift, to which Taylor commented, "I say that's my baby and I'm really proud."
