Attention! Taylor Swift fans: It’s time to dance ’round the kitchen in the refrigerator light.
At midnight, the star singer officially released her latest remastered album. Red (Taylor’s Version).. The album, first released in 2012, now features 30 songs, including a 10-minute version of her beloved track “All Too Well.”
After the song—which reflects on a heartbreaking romance (and a lost scarf!)—was first released nine years ago, it quickly became a fan favorite for its moving lyrics. Then, over the years, Swift let it slip that she still had the original, more explicit version of the song. “It included the F-word,”Swift dished upon Rolling Stone“s 500 Best Albums podcast2020 “and basically I remember my sound guy was like, ‘Hey, I burned a CD of that thing that you were doing in case you want it.’ And I was like, ‘Sure.'”
“I ended up taking it home and listening to it,” Swift, who is rumored to have written the song about her relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal, continued. “And I was like, ‘I actually really like this but it definitely is like 10 minutes long and I need to pare it down.'”Then, she enlisted the assistance of a songwriter Liz RoseTo reduce the song to just under five minutes RedThe 2012 release.
