We Know All Too Well That Red (Taylor’s Version) Will Dominate Sad Girl Fall


By November 12, 2021, Taylor Swift will have all of us enchanted with the rerecordings of her album Red. The original version of Red was released on October 22, 2012, marking the beginning of Swift’s experimentation with pop music. While it is not officially a pop album, Swift began to experiment with new sounds through songs like 22, I Knew You Were Trouble, and Stay Stay Stay. The album had 7 singles, with the lead single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” topping the US Billboard Top 100. The other six singles, “Begin Again”, “I Knew You Were Trouble”, and “Red” reached numbers eight, two, and six on the charts.

In order to promote Red (Taylor’s Version), Swift has released new merchandise with lyrics from the songs on Red (Taylor’s Version), as well as started a collaboration with Starbucks. For this collaboration, you can go to any Starbucks and ask for “Taylor’s Latte” which is a Caramel Nonfat Latte. Additionally, they will write “Taylor’s Latte” on the cup to celebrate the release.

The week of release, Swift has a fully packed schedule to promote the album’s release. This will consist of an appearance on Jimmy Fallon on November 11th at 10:35 pm CST, an appearance on Seth Meyers on November 11th at 11:35 pm CST, and an appearance on Saturday Night Live on November 13th at 10:35 pm CST. In addition to the album release, Swift has directed and starred in a short film for All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version) with Dylan O’Brien and Sadie Sink.

Within the 30 song tracklist, Swift is releasing the 10-minute version of her song “All Too Well”, which has been a staple song in her fandom. Written about actor Jake Gyllenhal, the song will be explicit and contain the original lyrics along with new lyrics that have not been released previously, as the songwriter shortened the song for the original release. Similarly to her rerecordings of Fearless, the album will contain never before released songs from Swift’s vault, including “Better Man (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)”, “Nothing New (Featuring Phoebe Bridgers) (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)”, “Babe (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)”, “Message In A Bottle (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)”, “I Bet You Think About Me (Featuring Chris Stapleton) (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)”, “Forever Winter (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)”, “Run (Featuring Ed Sheeran) (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)”, “The Very First Night (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)”, and lastly, “All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)”.

As explained in my story over “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)”, Swift is re-recording her albums because the ownership of her albums was sold, even though she was the one who wrote and sang the music for the albums. To support Swift and her journey to obtain ownership of her own music, listen to “Red (Taylor’s Version)” when it comes out on November 11, 2021 at 11:00 pm CST.
