“Red (Taylor’s Version)” is the next album in Swift’s mission to re-record her first six records, a plan that she announced in 2019 after Scooter Braun’s Ithaca Holdings LLC acquired Big Machine Label LLC, which owned Swift’s catalog. Braun eventually sold those maters for over $US300 ($AU402) million, Variety reported in November 2019.

The upcoming album comes on the heels of the album “Fearless (Taylor’s Version),” which Swift released in April, and “Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version),” which the singer released as a single in September.

Swift announced that “Red (Taylor’s Version)” would be her next re-recorded album in June, later announcing the album’s tracklist in August. It includes 30 songs, 20 of which are re-recordings of songs from “Red (Deluxe Edition).” There’s also a smattering of new “from the vault” tracks that feature artists including Phoebe Bridgers, Chris Stapleton, and Ed Sheeran, as well as a 10-minute version of Swift’s iconic ballad “All Too Well.”

“Red (Taylor’s Version)” is out on November 12.
