"This will be the first time you hear all 30 songs that were meant to go on 'Red.'"
This was the revelation of Taylor Swift as she announced about the re-recording of her fourth album Red which is set to be released towards the end of the year.
Called Red (Taylor's Version), the album will be out on November 19.
In her announcement post, Taylor talked about what heartbreak meant for her which will be reflected in the songs of Red (Taylor's Version).
"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," she said.
Taylor added, "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."
According to Taylor, Red "resembled a heartbroken person. It was all over the place, a fractured mosaic of feelings that somehow all fit together in the end. Happy, free, confused, lonely, devastated, euphoric, wild, and tortured by memories past."
The singer shared that she experimented on different sounds for this particular album and collaborated with different people.
"I’m not sure if it was pouring my thoughts into this album, hearing thousands of your voices sing the lyrics back to me in passionate solidarity, or if it was simply time, but something was healed along the way."
