The wait is over for Taylor Swift fans as the singer re-releases her album version Red is finally available on streaming services and store shelves.
First released in 2012, Swift re-recorded the album this year, after her label Big Machine sold the original masters to Scooter Braun’s Ithaca Holdings. Swift was quick to speak out against the sale, saying it was done without her consultation and effectively put her legacy “in the hands of someone who tried to dismantle it.” The singer announced shortly after that she would be re-recording her first six albums.
Red (Taylor version) follows the release of Without fear (Taylor version), which quickly hit the top of the charts when it was released in April. The new release features 30 songs on the songlist, including collaborations with Phoebe Bridgers, Chris Stapleton, and Ed Sheeran. Swift also includes all of the so-called “From the Vault” tracks on the album, which are songs that were written for the album originally but failed to make the cut. final.
“This will be the first time you hear the 30 songs that were to continue Red“Swift said in a statement.” And hey, one of them is even ten minutes long, “she adds, referring to the closer album” All Too Well “.
This song is also the inspiration behind a new short film Swift released, to help promote the new version of Red. Swift directed the movie and stars in it alongside Strange thing‘s Sadie Sink and Teen wolf starring, Dylan O’Brien.
âMusically and lyrically, Red sounded like a heartbroken person, âSwift says of the album. âIt was everywhere, a fractured mosaic of feelings that all fit together in the end. Happy, free, confused, lonely, devastated, euphoric, savage and tortured by memories of the past. Like trying out songs with a new life, I went to the studio and experimented with different sounds and collaborators. And I don’t know if it was thinking about this album, hearing thousands of your voices singing the lyrics to me with passionate solidarity, or if it was just the time, but something was healed along the way. “, she says.
