UPDATE: We’ll take this news “All Too Well.”
On Thursday, Sept. 30, Taylor Swift surprised fans by announcing a new release date for her re-recorded Red album.
“Got some news that I think you’re gonna like—my version of Red will be out a week earlier than scheduled (including the 4 disc vinyl) on November 12,” she shared on Instagram Stories. “Can’t wait to celebrate the 13th with you and our new/old autumn heartbreak album.”
We are never ever prepared for this kind of announcement—like, ever.
“I’ve always said that the world is a different place for the heartbroken. It moves on a different axis, at a different speed. Time skips backwards and forwards fleetingly,” she wrote in a personal letter. “The heartbroken might go through thousands of micro-emotions a day trying to figure out how to get through it without picking up the phone to hear that old familiar voice. In the land of heartbreak, moments of strength, independent and devil-may-care rebellion are intricately woven together with grief, paralyzing vulnerability and hopelessness.”
