‘Fearless’ singer refers to the word Eras to describe the theme and her state of mind for each of her albums over the years. It can be said the Eras may just be a grand medley of her albums, except only this time, it’s Taylor’s version.

Eras includes songs from her albums Speak Now, Red, Lover, and 1989. Additionally, Taylor has also included her newer songs as a sequence, along with songs that were never released before, calling them ‘from the vault’.
