Swifties, We‘ve Won Again!

In the last three years Taylor Swift has given us three new albums, and a trip down memory lane with a re-recording of her 2008 album Fearless. But she doesn’t stop there, recently it was officially announced that fans will be getting another re-recording, this time of her iconic album Red including all thirty songs that were supposed to go on the original record. One of them even being ten minutes long!

Red was a bit of a revolutionary album for the artist, being her first taste of more of a pop sound coming from her previous country background. So many of her most well-known songs come from it, including “never getting back together,” “22” and “I Knew You Were Trouble.” And of course we can’t forget what is arguably her best song to date–“All Too Well”–about one of her most famous relationships with actor Jake Gyllenhaal.

“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,” Swift said in a lengthy Instagram post that featured an updated version of the OG Red cover.“ I  went into the studio and experimented with different sounds and collaborators.“

The excitement of this announcement even got two different phrases trending on Twitter. The first was “Thirty songs?” The second consisted of memes of Gyllenhall. His public image suffered tremendously after finding out in another song on this album that he even missed Swift’s 21st birthday party.

Swifties thought they had Taylor all figured out and were sure we were getting “Taylors version” of her summer album 1989. But it’s looking like we’re skipping right into sad girl fall with this one.

But with thirty songs, we all can’t help but be excited to get our hearts broken nonetheless. The album drops Nov. 19th.
