Taylor Swift Announces “Red” Is Her Next Re-Recorded Album

Another re-recorded album is on the way from Taylor Swift! *squeals*

The superstar announced this morning she’ll be releasing her 2012 Grammy-winning Red featuring 30 songs – think “I Knew You Were Trouble” and ” We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” – including a 10-minute version of fan-favourite, “All Too Well.” *more squeals*

“I’ve always said that the world is a different place for the heartbroken. It moves on a different axis, at a different speed,” Taylor shares in an Insta post to her 163 million followers.

“Time skips backwards and forward fleetingly. The heartbroken might go through thousands of micro-emotions a day trying to figure out how to get through it without picking up the phone to hear that old familiar voice,” she continues.

“In the land of heartbreak, moments of strength, independence and devil-may-care rebellion are intricately woven together with grief, paralysing vulnerability and hopelessness.”

“Imagining your future might always take you on a detour back to the past. And this is all to say, that the next album I’ll be releasing is my version of Red.”

She continues by explaining that the album very much 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.”

She ends by explaining that “sometimes you need to talk it over (over and over and over) for it to ever really be…over. Like your friend who calls you in the middle of the night going on and on about their ex, I just couldn’t stop writing.”

The album Red (Taylor’s Version), which is coming out November 19, is one of many albums Taylor is set to re-record so she owns the complete rights to her creations after manager-to-the-stars, Scooter Braun, bought her former record label and with it the masters to her first six albums, then sold them to a private equity firm and continues to profit from the sale today.

Interestingly, Taylor’s new re-recorded album announcement comes on Scooter’s 40th birthday.
