Fans are speculating that the release date change is due to Adele’s upcoming album, as it’s been rumored that her release date is set to debut in November. It’s also been predicted that a re-recorded version of Swift’s album, “1989”, will drop next, as she’s been teasing fans and hinting at the idea.
In an earlier announcement of the album, Taylor expressed her gratitude to her collaborators.
“I can’t express my gratitude enough to these artists for helping me bring these songs to life. I can’t wait til we can dust off our highest hopes and relive these memories together. We’ll also be making a bunch of new ones too, since Red (Taylor’s Version) includes so many songs you haven’t heard yet. Til then, I’ll be counting down and picturing it all in my head. In burning red.”
