Published: 10 Oct 2022, 00:04
Red (Taylor's Version) is the second re-recorded album by Taylor Swift. It was released on November 12, 2021, through Republic Records. It is a re-recording of Swift's fourth studio album, Red (2012), and follows her first re-recorded album, Fearless (Taylor's Version), which was released in April 2021. The re-recording is Swift's counter measure against the changed ownership of the masters to her first six studio albums. It features a set of unreleased tracks from the Red era billed as "From the Vault".
Red (Taylor's Version) was met with widespread acclaim from music critics who admired Swift's vocal performances, the production quality, and the new tracks. Reviews described it as a classic pop record expanding from Swift's country roots into electronic, synth-pop and rock flairs, whilst chronicling various dynamics of love, life, loss and heartache. The album broke a string of commercial records, such as the Spotify feat for the largest single-day streams for an album by a female artist and the biggest vinyl sales week in MRC Data history. It topped the charts in Argentina, Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Scotland and the United Kingdom, as well as the United States where Swift surpassed Elton John's 46-year-old record to become the fastest soloist in Billboard 200 history to collect four number-one albums, doing so in under 16 months.
