Taylor Swift has shared a post, teasing new songs from the vault, and Swifties have reacted accordingly.
On Thursday (August 5), the pop titan, 31, took to social media to share a brief video teaser, which shows leaves falling in front of a red vault housing a number of scrambled acronyms for as-yet-to-be released songs from her newly-recorded Red (Taylor’s Version) album. The set is scheduled to drop on November 19. "Level: casually cruel in the name of being honest," she captioned the post, referencing lyrics from the collection's fan-favorite "All Too Well." As expected, Swifties put on their detective hats and have marched forward to decode the clues and the chaos is all over the Twitterverse.
Back in June, Swift announced that she would be dropping the re-recorded 2012 LP after releasing Fearless (Taylor's Version) in April. The upcoming set will feature all 30 tracks that were meant to appear on Red, including a 10-minute cut, which Swifties are guessing is the original version of "All Too Well."
"Musically and lyrically, Red resembled a heartbroken person. 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," the singer wrote in the project’s announcement post. "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."
