Taylor Swift is painting the world Red.
Fans rejoiced with tissues at hand to dry their tears on Friday (12/11), as the GRAMMY Award-winning pop singer dropped the highly anticipated Taylor's Version of her multi-platinum certified 2012 album, Red.
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.

"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," the 'I Knew You Were Trouble' singer-songwriter writes in a tweet. "Red is about to be mine again, but it has always been ours. Now we begin again."

The 30-track album, which includes collaborations with country star Chris Stapleton, frequent collaborator Ed Sheeran, Foster The People's Mark Foster, and American singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers, follows the April debut of her first re-recorded album Fearless.
Swift's re-recording of Red comes ahead of the highly anticipated release of the music video for the 10-minute version of 'All Too Well'. Written and directed by Swift herself, the visual stars Stranger Things actress Sadie Sink and Teen Wolf actor Dylan O'Brien.

The 'All Too Well' short film premiered on 13 November at 8 a.m. SGT/PHT.
Shortly after the 'All Too Well' short film dropped, Swift announced that her next music video 'I Bet You Think About Me' would be released on Monday night (11/15). The visual marks Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively's directorial debut and stars Miles Teller.
The 'willow' singer-songwriter's re-recording of her catalogue is in response to her former manager Scotter Braun and his company's acquiring her masters and selling them to Shamrock Holdings in 2020.
The original release of the 2012 chart-topping record featured 16 tracks such as 'State of Grace,' 'I Knew You Were Trouble,' 'We Are Never Getting Back Together,' '22,' and more. The album also included collaborations with Ed Sheeran and Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody.
