Surprise, Swifties! Taylor Swift has announced that her next re-recorded album will be Red.
Earlier today, June 19, Swift shared a long note about heartbreak on social media announcing the news, she wrote, "In the land of heartbreak, moments of strength, independence, and devil-may-care rebellion are intricately woven together with grief, paralyzing vulnerability and hopelessness. Imagining your future might always take you on a detour back to the past. And this is all to say, that the next album I’ll be releasing is my version of Red."
She added, "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. 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."
The next album that I’ll be releasing is my version of Red, which will be out on November 19. This will be the first time you hear all 30 songs that were meant to go on Red. And hey, one of them is even ten minutes long? https://t.co/FOBLS5aHpS pic.twitter.com/6zWa64Owgp— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) June 18, 2021
Swift continued to share how time, her passion, and hearing to her fans sing her songs "in passionate solidarity" "healed (something) along the way."
"Sometimes you need to talk it over (over and over and over) for it to ever really be... over. Like your friend who calls you in the middle of the night going on and on about their ex, I just couldn’t stop writing," she added.
The re-recording of the 2012 album will be released on Nov. 19, with 30 songs, including one ten-minute song. It will include her hit singles like 22, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, and I Knew You Were Trouble.
