Taylor Swift’s new album in November
After a highly publicised dispute with her former talent manager and label, Taylor Swift has been re-releasing her back catalogue in her own version. Following the release of “Fearless (Taylor’s version)” earlier this year, “Red (Taylor’s version)” is coming our way!
Swift announced the re-release on her Instagram account, with a bit about what “Red” originally meant to her.
“Red (Taylor’s version)” will be available on November 19 and it is important to listen to these versions of iconic Swift songs. Mainly because it is her work, the version that Swift wants, and getting to revisit these albums is a delight. Even if we already know some of these songs all too well.
