Just when Taylor Swift Nation thought they’d outsmarted their overlord, running wild with the semi-educated guess that the pop star’s next installment of her re-re-recording series would be 1989, surprise, we’re actually going back to 2012 first. Happy, free, confused, lonely, devastated, euphoric, wild, and tortured by memories past.”

And yet, she continues, she made peace with this particular era of her past while revisiting Red, her first flirtation with pop. “It was all over the place, a fractured mosaic of feelings that somehow all fit together in the end. The next album that I’ll be releasing is my version of Red, which will be out on November 19. “Musically and lyrically, Red resembled a heartbroken person,” she wrote in a note to fans. And hey, one of them is even ten minutes long🧣— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) June 18, 2021


Taylor Swift’s Red and the Art of Never Seeing It Coming

Wait, What Are Taylor Swift’s Fearless Songs About Again? “Like trying on pieces of a new life, I went into the studio and experimented with different sounds and collaborators. On Friday, Swift announced that she’ll rerelease her Grammy-nominated fourth album, Red, this fall on November 19; it’s the second reissue following Fearless (Taylor’s Version), released in April. This will be the first time you hear all 30 songs that were meant to go on Red. It’s all too well. And to brace the weak-hearted for what’s on the horizon post- Thot Girl Summer, the news comes with a disclaimer that this one’s for the broken bitches on the mend. 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.” Like her first reissue, for Fearless, she’ll open the vault for Red — it’ll now include all 30 songs originally meant for the album, including one that she teases is “even ten minutes long.” Get your karaoke stamina up.
