Swift announced Taylor version of 'Red' this year in June, “Musically and lyrically, ‘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,” Swift wrote.

“Like trying on pieces of a new life, I went into the studio and experimented with different sounds and collaborators. And 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.” She said in a statement back then. 

In 2019, Swift announced plans to re-record her first six studio albums after Scooter Braun acquired her master recordings. In a new interview with CBS Sunday Morning, the Grammy winner said that she “absolutely” will re-record her first six albums.
