Red (Taylor’s Version) marks the second of Swift’s early albums to get the rerelease treatment as part of her plan to rerecord her first six studio albums. Swift famously revealed plans to do so following a public feud with her former label, Big Machine Records, who still owns the rights to the masters for her discography through 2017’s Reputation.
As with Fearless (Taylor’s Version), which was released in April 2021, the rerecorded version of her 2012 album is set to be comprised of a slew of additional tracks from the vault.
Among the bonus tracks is the highly anticipated 10-minute version of Taylor Swift’s heart-wrenching breakup anthem, “All Too Well.”
The earlier than expected release of Red (Taylor’s Version) also comes on the heels of Taylor Swift surprising fans with a rerecorded version of her 1989 single, “Wildest Dreams.”
In a tweet announcing the surprise drop of the single, Swift noted that she decided to rerecord the dreamy synth-pop ballad after she was made aware of the fact that the song was currently trending on TikTok.
