Taylor Swift has moved the release date of Red (Taylor’s Version) forward.

Swift has been re-recording all of the albums previously released with her former label, Big Machine Records, after a clause in her old contract that prevented her from doing so expired last year.

She has so-far released a new version of her 2008 album, Fearless, which The Independent praised for “wisely not trying to re-write history”.

Her plan to release a re-recorded version of Red, the 2012 album that marked her major shift from country to pop music, in November this year has now been brought forward by a week.

Writing on Twitter, Swift said: “Got some news that I think you’re gonna like,” Swift told fans. “My version of ‘Red’ will be out a week earlier than scheduled (including the 4 disc vinyl) on 12 November! Can’t wait to celebrate the 13th with you and our new/old autumn heartbreak album.”

Last week (26 September), Swift outperformed herself on the UK charts with a re-recorded version of her hit song, “Wildest Dreams”.

The pop artist surprise-released the new version of her 1989 single last Friday (24 September), Official Charts confirmed that the song had debuted at No 25, compared to the original’s peak at No 40 in 2015.

The surprise release of “Wildest Dreams” has some fans speculating whether she will surprise-release 1989 before then.

Meanwhile, it was revealed yesterday (29 September) that Swift was a bridesmaid at Girls creator Lena Dunham’s wedding. The pair have been friends for several years.
