Taylor Swift Announces Re-Recorded Version of Red
Since losing the rights of her first six albums to music mogul Scooter Braun, Taylor Swift is continuing her plan of reclaiming her catalog by re-recording the albums. The first release, a re-recording of her sophomore album Fearless, arrived in April, and now fans can look forward to Taylor’s Version of her fourth album Red.
“Musically and lyrically, Red resembled a heartbroken person. It was all over the place, a fractured mosaic of feelings that somehow all fit together in the end,” said Swift in a statement. “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.”
The 30 track expanded release is due out Nov 19 includes what Taylor Swift describes as “all 30 songs that were meant to go on Red." View her full announcement below.
