Taylor Swift will release the rerecorded version of Red in November – and there will be some surprises on there, too.
The singer, 31, took the decision to remake her award-winning, million selling albums after a row with Scooter Braun about the ownership of their master recordings.
Red was originally released in 2012 and featured 16 tracks including her hit singles I Knew You Were Trouble, and We Are Never Getting Back Together.
They will all be on the new version when it comes out on November 19 – and eleven MORE songs, too!
She told fans on Twitter : “This will be the first time you hear all 30 songs that were meant to go on Red.

“And hey, one of them is even 10 minutes long.”
Red scored TayTay a number one spot on the UK album chart, with its emotional lyrics and catchy melodies painting a picture of heartbreak – with Rolling Stone at the time pinpointing actor Jake Gyllenhaal, 40, and Harry Styles, 27, as main sources of inspiration.

In her lengthy Twitter statement, Taylor added: “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.
“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.”
Jake Gyllenhaal dated Taylor before she wrote Red, and it is thought he partially inspired the heartbreak album
It is the second rerecorded album after Fearless, which was released in 2008 when she was an 18-year-old country music star.
It was the third chart-topping album she had in the space of 259 days, following surprise releases Folklore in July and Evermore in December.

A controversial deal in 2019 saw Scooter Braun take ownership of the back catalogue of Scott Borchetta's Big Machine Label Group, which included Taylor 's million-selling LPs Fearless, Speak Now, Red, 1989 and Reputation.
Braun's Ithaca Holdings bought the company in a whopping $300million deal in June last year.
The ME! singer was devastated when she found out about the sale, describing it as her "worst case scenario".

In a post on Tumblr, she went on to claim that she had suffered "incessant, manipulative bullying" at the hands of Braun for years.
She added that she had pleaded to own the rights to her songs, but had never been given the chance to buy them outright. She was told she could 'earn them' back by recording one new album in exchange for an old one.

Borchetta responded to her words, alleging that he had talked through a deal with Swift and her attorney Don Passman, but she had rejected it in favour of moving her business to Universal Music Group.
It has since been claimed that Braun sold the master recordings to an investment capital firm.
To regain control, Taylor has been rerecording her albums which will mean she is paid for their streams – and it's a move that effectively could weaken the value of the originals.
