Taylor Swift is always full of surprises, and fans of the singer got some exciting news on Friday with her latest announcement! Since November, Swift has been in the process of re-recording her old albums, and now she has shared that fans will be getting the "Taylor's Version" of Red later this year!
Swift says her album Red "resembled a heartbroken person"
Swift released her first re-recorded album, Fearless (Taylor's Version), on April 9, and fans had been wondering which album would come next! While there had been speculation it could be 1989, Swift announced that Red (Taylor's Version) is coming this fall, sharing a note that saw her reflect on her fourth studio album.
The singer began her message by talking about how the world feels different to those experiencing heartbreak, saying that "Red resembled a heartbroken person." She characterized the album as being "happy, free, confused, lonely, devastated, euphoric, wild, and tortured by memories past."
Swift announces that her version of Red will have 30 songs
Swift went on to share that she "went into the studio and experimented with different sounds and collaborators" for the new version of Red. And while the album was about heartbreak, she said that it felt like "something was healed along the way" during the process.
In her re-recordings, the singer has also included additional songs "from the vault" that didn't make the original album— with Red having the most new tracks yet! "This will be the first time you hear all 30 songs that were meant to go on Red," Swift concluded her note. "And hey, one of them is even ten minutes long."
Of course, dedicated "Swifties" know that the singer is referring to her original version of "All Too Well," which will undoubtedly be one of the album's most anticipated tracks! She also revealed the release date, saying that Red (Taylor's Version) will be out on November 19!
