“Teardrops on My Guitar”

Swift has been re-recording her first six albums because her original masters were sold by her prior label, Big Machine Records, and she wanted to create new masters that she could own herself.
“Red (Taylor’s Version)” was released Friday with an expanded 30 total songs, including duets with Ed Sheeran, Chris Stapleton, and Phoebe Bridgers.
“I’m getting to look back on this music and just see music and see art and see experiences I’ve had in concerts,” said Swift told The Associated Press about re-recording her music. “It was mine and now it’s really shared between me and the fans and that’s what I have really taken away from this experience.”
She previously rereleased “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)” in April 2021.
