Pop superstar Taylor Swift announced that she will release a re-recorded version of her fourth studio and hit album ‘Red’ on 19 November.

The re-recorded Red follows Taylor’s Fearless version which she unveiled last April.

The 31-year-old singer and 11-time Grammy winner shared on Instagram, Saturday, 19 June, that Red will feature all 30 songs that describe her as “meant to go on Red,” including a 10-minute track.

“I’ve always said that the world is a different place for the heartbroken. It moves on a different axis, at a different speed. Time skips backwards and forwards 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. In the land of heartbreak, moments of strength, independence, and devil-may-care rebellion are intricately woven together with grief, paralyzing 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 wrote.

“Musically and lyrically, resembled a heartbroken person; that 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,” she continued.

“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,” Taylor said.

“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. 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.”

Taylor originally first released ‘Red’ on October 2012, and it debuted at No.1 on both the Billboard 200 and the Billboard Country Albums charts and signaled Swift’s gradual crossover to the pop genre.

Among popular tracks in Swift’s Red album are “Stay Stay Stay”, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”, “22”, “I Knew You Were Trouble”, “Begin Again”, and “Everything Has Changed.”

Taylor began re-recording some of her past album after a long-running dispute with her former record company Big Machine and music executive Scooter Braun over the rights to some of her biggest hits.

Braun bought Big Machine in 2019 after Swift left the label in 2018 for a new deal with Universal Music Group. Last year, he sold Swift’s master recordings to a private equity company in a deal reported to be worth more than $300 million.
