Two days ago on November 12, famous American artist Taylor Swift officially released ‘Red (Taylor’s Version),’ a remake of her 2012 album in order to gain full ownership of her past work.

The original 2012 ‘Red’ album consisted of 16 tracks, but has been expanded to 30 songs in Taylor’s new version. It includes nine unreleased songs that weren’t featured in the previous album. 

The album consists of duets with artists  Gary Lightbody, Phoebe Bridgers, Ed Sheeran and Chris Stapleton. 

American journalist Rob Sheffield awarded the album five stars, saying that it was “a tribute to how far she’s traveled,” and “makes you even more excited for where she’s heading next. “

Fans also had positive feedback on this new and upgraded version. “I am crying @taylorswift13 #RedTaylorsVersion . Freaking AWESOME,” posted by a fan on Twitter. “Taylor Swift just hits different and especially when its Red we are talking about,” said another.

Swift thanked fans on Twitter for supporting her through her journey to reclaim her music: “It never would have been possible to go back & remake my previous work, uncovering lost art & forgotten gems along the way if you hadn’t emboldened me,” she wrote. “Red is about to be mine again, but it has always been ours. Now we begin again.”
