Taylor Swift teases ’10-minute version’ of heartbreak ballad All Too Well and re-recorded Red album


Taylor Swift made it clear she always understands ‘the assignment’ when it comes to giving her fans exactly what they want. 

Just 13 days before the release of her highly-anticipated rerecorded album Red (Taylor’s Version), the pop superstar shared a playful message with her more than 183 followers on her Instagram account. 

While flipping through a vinyl version of her upcoming record while sitting in a brown leather chair, she let Swifties know she heard all their requests.

The 11-time Grammy winner, 31, revealed her plans to drop the ten minute version of All Too Well, and its original ‘handwritten lyrics.’  

Looking pleased with herself, Swift mouthed the lyrics to Tay Money’s 2021 hit The Assignment.

‘I understood the assignment,’ she lip-synced while promoting the vinyl of Red (Taylor’s Version), which will also be available on November 12.

In the footage, she sported her signature red lipstick, winged eyeliner, a black turtleneck and ripped, light-wash jeans.

Instantaneously, TikTok users commented their excitement and voiced fear over how the crushing breakup ballad would affect their mental health.

‘You’ll be paying for my therapy blondie,’ one joked as another fan wrote that the ‘handwritten lyrics for All Too Well belong in a museum.’

Others dubbed her the ‘queen of giving fans what they want’ and noted there are ’13 days until Red Taylor’s Version’ and this is Swift’s 13th TikTok. 

Swift often schedules releases and social media posts around the 13th, which is her lucky number. 

All Too Well is speculated to be about her short-lived relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal, who she dated from October 2010 to January 2011.

Some of the most popular lyrics from the fan-favorite masterpiece include: ‘And you call me up again just to break me like a promise, so casually cruel in the name of being honest.’ 

She has since found love with Joe Alwyn, who she began dating around October 2016. 

While quarantining together last year, she and her English beau, 30, co-produced and co-wrote a number of songs on her hit album Folklore.  

Her latest rerecording will also include nine other bonus tracks as well as duets with Phoebe Bridgers, Chris Stapleton, and Ed Sheeran.

Red (Taylor’s Version) will be the second in the line of re-recorded catalogs and feature 30 songs. Fearless (Taylor’s Version) was released in April through Republic Records.

Taylor has been re-recording her first six albums after Scooter Braun purchased her entire music catalog out from underneath her and then sold it without her knowledge for $300million to Shamrock Holdings.

The re-released albums will contain the original track lists, as well as songs she wrote or recorded at the time, but didn’t make the initial cut. 

‘In terms of production, I really wanted to stay very loyal to the initial melodies that I had thought of for these songs,’ she told PEOPLE of recording Fearless (Taylor’s Version.) ‘And so we really did go in and try to create a “the same but better” version. We kept all the same parts that I initially dreamed up for these songs. But if there was any way that we could improve upon the sonic quality, we did.’

Taylor called Scooter out over the sale in a social media post and claimed that he intentionally kept her in the dark while he turned a hefty profit on her hard work.

Prior to the that, in 2019 Braun had purchased Nashville-based independent record label Big Machine, first taking the rights to Taylor’s body of work and at the time, she voiced public outrage at being cut out of the deal.

Swift said the news made her ‘sad and grossed out’ because, in part, she claims Braun perpetuated ‘incessant, manipulative bullying’ against her for years.
