Taylor Swift will drop rerecorded 'Red' album with 30 songs in November: What we know
Taylor Swift is rerecording another album — and it's one her fans know "All Too Well."
Following a public battle with music exec Scooter Braun, who purchased the masters to six of her albums in 2019, Swift revealed Friday she will rerecord her fourth studio album "Red," due for release Nov. 19.
"Red (Taylor's Version)" will be the second album rerecorded by the singer-songwriter, who dropped "Fearless (Taylor's Version)" in April.
"Musically and lyrically, Red resembled a heartbroken person," Swift wrote in a note along with her tweet. "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."
As a surprise bonus, Swift promised the new version will include every song intended for its original release, noting that "one of them is even ten minutes long."
"Sometimes you need to talk it over (over and over and over) for it to ever really be... over. Like your friend who calls you in the middle of the night going on and on about their ex, I just couldn't stop writing," she wrote. "This will be the first time you hear all 30 songs that were meant to go on Red."
"Fearless (Taylor's Version)" gave fans 27 tracks: All the songs from the original and platinum editions, six previously unreleased tracks from the vault and a bonus song.
In June 2019, Swift publicly denounced music tycoon Braun – who manages Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Swift's past foe, Kanye West – after he paid $300 million to acquire Swift's former record label, Big Machine Label Group, and by extension, the masters of Swift's music from her previous six albums.

In response, she revealed her intention to rerecord her first five albums – "Taylor Swift," "Fearless," "Speak Now," "Red" and "1989" — while chatting with Robin Roberts on "Good Morning America" in August 2019.
“Yeah, that’s true," Swift said after Roberts asked her about her plans to rerecord her music. "And it’s something that I’m very excited about doing because my contract says that starting November 2020, so next year, I can record albums one through five all over again. I’m very excited about it."
