Taylor Swift: Re-Recording Master's

Why is Swift Re-recording?

Red (Taylor's Version)

Red (Taylor's Version) was released on November 12, 2021, and it is the second album Taylor Swift had re-release in her effort to re-record her first 6 albums in order to own rights to her master's. It consists of 30 songs including 9 vault songs. The new vault songs feature collaborations with Phoebe Bridgers, Chris Stapleton, and Ed Sheeran. "Better Man" and "Babe" had been released in previous years by country bands Big Little Town and Sugarland. The most anticipated vault song was "All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor's Version) (From the Vault) because Swift had talked about it  in previous interviews about this version existing for several years. This song also recently became a number 1 song, and it now holds the record for longest number 1 song ever on Billboard charts.  This album hit number 1 on the Billboard album chart.

Fearless (Taylor's Version)

Fearless (Taylor's Version) was released on April 9, 2021, and this was the first re-recording of her first 6 studio albums that she released. It consists of 26 songs including 6 vault songs that were previously unreleased. The vault songs are songs written during the era/years associated with each album, but they did not make it on the album for some reason or another. Some of the vault songs have new collaborations with country artists Maren Morris and Keith Urban.  The most popular of the vault songs is "Perfectly Fine," which features the phrase "Mr. Casually Cruel." This phrase relates to one of Swift's fan favorite songs "All Too Well." This album hit number 1 on the Billboard album chart and showed that Swift's fanbase was extremely interested in these re-recordings.
