Ever since Taylor Swift first announced that her music catalog was being purchased by Scooter Braun and hinted that she was interested in potentially re-recording her first several albums as a way to regain control over her life’s work, her fans have been on the edge of their seats, excitedly awaiting six more albums from the prolific songwriter.

That excitement only grew when on April 9, 2021, Swift released the first of the rerecorded albums: Fearless (Taylor’s Version) with every song from the original, plus six additional songs “from the vault” that she’d written during the Fearless era but not released.

Since April, speculation about which of Swift’s remaining five albums will be released next abounded. And while fans seemed pretty convinced that 1989 was incoming, Swift surprised her listeners on June 18th by announcing that Red (Taylor’s Version) would be released on November 19th.

And while that may seem like it’s very far away, it’ll be well worth the wait, with Swift promising a 30-song tracklist and even one song that’ll be 10 minutes in length: likely the much-talked-about demo version of the Swiftie favorite track “All Too Well.”

In her announcement, Swift wrote, “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.” So the brokenhearted can rejoice: Red (Taylor’s Version) is coming to save you.
