Taylor Swift Reveals Release Date of “Red” As Her Next Re-Recorded Album

Following ‘Fearless (Taylor’s Version) topping the charts on the Billboard 200, the pop superstar made an announcement on its follow-up. Red (Taylor’s Version), which is a re-recording of Swift’s blockbuster 2012 album Red, is expected to debut on 19th November, as announced by the pop superstar on Friday.

This will be the first time you hear all 30 songs that were meant to go on Red. And hey, one of them is even ten minutes long.

After a widespread fan speculation that 1989 would be the next album to receive the re-recording treatment, Taylor Swift has chosen ‘Red,’ her fourth studio album which generated 7.5 million equivalent album units to date, based on the MRC Data.

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, devastated, 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 was healed along the way.

Fearless (Taylor’s Version), which was released back in April this year, included six previously unreleased “From The Vault” songs, in addition to new renditions of hits like “You Belong With Me,” “Love Story” and “Fifteen.” The re-recorded album debuted atop the Billboard 200 with 291,000 equivalent album units in its debut week, based on the MRC Data -- the biggest opening week for a country album since Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights in 2015, and first re-recorded album to make a history by topping the charts.

Back in 2019, Taylor Swift made an announcement that she plans to re-record her first six studio albums after Scooter Braun acquired her master recordings.

Swift began re-recording her albums last November, one month before releasing her new studio album ‘Evermore,’ and four months prior last year’s “Folklore” won the album of the year Grammy, making Swift the only female artist with three album of the year trophies in the history of Grammy.
