“Musically and lyrically, Red resembled a heartbroken person,” Swift wrote upon announcing Red (Taylor’s Version). “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.”
On Friday, Swift also released All Too Well, a short film based on her song of the same name, starring Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien.
