Taylor Swift's 2012 album Red is next in line in her series of album re-records.

After much fan speculation, Swift announced on Friday that the re-recorded version of her fourth studio album, Red (Taylor's Version), will release on November 19.

"I've always said that the world is a different place for the heartbroken. It moves on a different axis, at a different speed. Time skips backwards and forwards fleetingly. The heartbroken might go through thousands of micro-emotions a day trying to figure out how to get through it without picking up the phone to hear that old familiar voice," Swift wrote in the post's caption.

"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."

Back in April, Swift released Fearless (Taylor's Version), her first album do-over. In addition to re-recordings of the album's 19 tracks, Fearless (Taylor's Version) included her 2010 single Today Was a Fairytale and six from the vault songs, that were not included on the original album. These included You All Over Me with Maren Morris, Mr. Perfectly Fine, We Were Happy, That's When with Keith Urban, Don't You and Bye Bye Baby. Fearless (Taylor's Version) debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top 200, Top Album Sales and Country Albums chart, making it her third No. 1 album in less than a year.

Swift first confirmed her intent to re-record her music in August 2019 on Good Morning America, after her Big Machine Label Group catalog was acquired in June 2019 by Scooter Braun's Ithaca Holdings. In November 2020, after her masters were sold once again to Shamrock Holdings, Swift penned a long post on Twitter, saying that she had started the process of re-recording her old music. – Reuters
