Breaking up is complicated… especially if you’re a diehard Taylor Swift fan wanting to break up with her old albums, which she has urged her fans to no longer support as her campaign to issue re-recorded versions in their stead gets underway in earnest.

Friday, Swift will be releasing “Fearless (Taylor’s Version),” a remake of her 2008 sophomore album, and it’s understood that many Swifties who support the singer’s choices will want to retire the original from their digital collections or playlists. But what if songs from “Fearless” — Big Machine’s version — accidentally pop up as choices on streaming sites, like old boyfriends whose pictures you thought you’d burned but hadn’t? Is there a way to make these unsightly reminders of songs that had once been most-playeds but have now joined the self-forbidden list never appear as recommended possibilities again?

There is. The Twitter account @swifferupdates is one of at least several offering advice on how to make Swift’s OG Big Machine tracks (or at least the ones that she has yet released replacements for) disappear from fans’ Spotify recommendations for good.

The thread offers a tutorial on “How to Hide Fearless (Original) on Spotify,” which is simple enough, although somewhat time-consuming, as it involves clicking “hide the song” individually on each track from several different Big Machine editions of the album, plus a live release, plus a number of stand-along bonus tracks or remixes.
