“Red (Taylor’s Version),” a re-creation of the singer-songwriter’s 2012 album “Red,” dropped early Friday.

“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,” Swift tweeted shortly after midnight Friday. “Red is about to be mine again, but it has always been ours. Now we begin again. Red (my version) is out.”

Swift, now 31, has been involved in a dispute with record executive Scooter Braun, whose Ithaca Holdings acquired the record label of her first six albums, Big Machine, in 2019, The Associated Press previously reported. Swift said Braun then sold the rights to those albums without giving her the opportunity to purchase her masters, the AP reported. She later announced plans to rerecord all of the albums and began with “Fearless (Taylor’s Version),” which hit shelves earlier this year. “Red (Taylor’s Version)” is her second rerecorded album.

There are some key differences between “Red (Taylor’s Version)” and the original album. The new release features 30 tracks, compared with 16 on the 2012 album, Swift revealed in an August Instagram post. Nine of the new tracks, labeled “from the vault,” were previously unreleased, including a 10-minute version of “All Too Well,” according to Variety. A short film inspired by the song is set to premiere at 7 p.m. EST Friday.

Swift’s rerecorded album is now available via major streaming services and music sellers.
