Taylor Swift announced on Twitter she will be releasing a re-recorded version of her 2012 album Red on Nov. 19. alongside a note about the album and a photo of herself wearing a red hat, Swift said: “This will be the first time you hear all 30 songs that were meant to go on Red.” The original Red contained the singles “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and “I Knew You Were Trouble.”
Swift said about the album, “Musically and lyrically, ‘Red’ resembled a heartbroken person. It was all over the place, a fractured mosaic of feelings that somehow all fit together in the end. Happy, free, confused, lonely, devasted, euphoric, wild and tortured by memories past. Like trying on pieces of a new life, I went into the studio and experimented with different sounds and collaborators. And I’m not sure if it was pouring my thoughts into this album, hearing thousands of your voices sing the lyrics back to me in passionate solidarity, or if it was simply time, but something healed along the way.”
Red (Taylor’s Version) comes after Swift released a re-recorded version of her 2008 album, Fearless, back in April. Swift announced in November 2020 that she will be re-recording all her old music after Scooter Braun sold her master recordings to equity company Shamrock Holdings.
