Swift received much success with the release of her self-titled debut album Taylor Swift (2006), and began working on her second studio album, Fearless (2008), in 2007. During that time, she received a number of e-mails from fans requesting for new material to be released, which drove Swift into releasing Beautiful Eyes: “I thought this might tide them over till the new album comes out in the fall. ” Beautiful Eyes is musically oriented to country pop and contemporary music. It includes new versions of tracks from Taylor Swift: an alternate version of “Should’ve Said No”, the fifth single from the album, an acoustic version of “Teardrops on My Guitar”, the second single from the album, a radio edit of “Picture to Burn”, the fourth single from the album, and “I’m Only Me when I’m with You”, a promotional single from the album. The EP also features two original songs, “Beautiful Eyes” and “I Heart Question Mark”, which she previously wrote in 2003. The EP’s DVD features music videos from the singles from Taylor Swift, as well as a music video made for “Beautiful Eyes” from footage from Swift’s eighteenth birthday party.
