Taylor Swift fans have been anxiously waiting for “Red (Taylor’s Version)” to release since the announcement was made in June. The wait is finally over, as the re-recording of her acclaimed 2012 album, “Red”, is finally out on all streaming services for your listening pleasure.
It never would have been possible to go back & remake my previous work, uncovering lost art & forgotten gems along the way if you hadn’t emboldened me. Red is about to be mine again, but it has always been ours. Now we begin again.

“Red (Taylor’s Version)” is one of six albums that Swift is re-recording since her publicized dispute with Scooter Braun, her old music manager. When Braun sold the rights to her back catalog in a $300 million deal, Swift decided to take matters into her own hands and re-record the masters she doesn’t own so that she officially owns her music.
These six albums include “Taylor Swift”, “Fearless”, “Speak Now”, “Red”, “1989” and “Reputation”. So far, we have the re-recorded versions of “Fearless” and “Red”. The recent release of “Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version” has fans speculating that “1989” will be next.
“Red (Taylor’s Version)” features all 30 songs that were meant to go on the original album, adding up to 2 hours and 10 minutes when listened to all the way through. The album also includes the original version of “All Too Well”, as well as a different, 10-minute version of the song.
The re-recorded album has been trending on Twitter since its release, and naturally, fans are freaking out.
