Re: Taylor Swift -- Discussion Thread

They are certainly a different sound. I think they're both brilliant albums.

I like this new track. Could easily be a song on evermore. It has the same funky 7/4 (or whatever) music time as "closure" and "long story short". Those songs are so interesting to me. You just never hear mainstream songs with that sort of rhythm.

Nathan Hubbard, who co-hosted "Every Single Album : Taylor Swift" (which I have mentioned before in this thread), in a Twitter thread on the collaborations between Dessner, Antonoff, Vernon and Swift :



And hey, he heard the same thing I did, and says almost exactly what I said about it above (I swear I hadn't seen his Tweet when I posted this )

I’m a big fan of Red so I look forward to hearing Taylor’s Version.

I know it’s not much of a gesture, but I’ve been swapping the new versions into my Spotify playlists.

Re: Taylor Swift -- Discussion Thread

She will not submit the new version oi Fearless for Grammy consideration but Evermore will be


Republic Records, her current record label, said Fearless was already "the most awarded country album of all time" and that she had decided not to submit it "after careful consideration".

It is up to individual artists and their record labels to submit their records for Grammy consideration, a process that can sometimes lead to some surprising omissions.

Target will have the Fearless vinyl but on red records in Sept 2021.

I think the standard is gold for most or all of the other stores.

First track released. I like it - - especially the layered vocals at the end.


Edit : I got confused. Of course this isn't the first single from Red - Taylor's Version but a re-recording of the song from 1989, previously heard in the Spirit sequel ( starring Jake Gyllenhaal!). Still waiting for our first new track from the Red re-recording.

Got my autographed CD at last.



And darn it if she didn’t figure out another way to get me to buy something from her merch shop. I love this song so much and couldn’t resist. It’s all the lyrics.

Hard to say for sure. Assumng it is her real signature, it appears she got writer's cramp and did it really fast/sloppy.

Many different images of taylor's signature found via googiing, look slightly different from one another. Would need more samples of her handwriting to know for sure.

It looks like writer's cramp missed the "a" and upperleft part of the "y".


The "r" looks different.

Yeah I take it as writer’s cramp and half-assing it. The CD cost me $20-$25 shipped. It’s in an Amazon CD frame and hanging in my office. I’m not sweating it.

Somehow I got on a mailing list for Taylor Swift, and they are now selling a signed version of Red now.

This new version of Red is great. Hard to believe some of these newly recorded songs got cut (yet Girl at Home made the Extended Edition release the first time around).
Man I love the Phoebe Bridges duet “Nothing New” so much. Beautiful song, beautifully sung.


And of course there’s the ten-minute All Too Well. I really like it, though I am sure it’s too much of a good thing for many people. The new ending “I was there…” is pretty cool. I do get why she cut the song down obviously, but WHY would she ever cut the lyric “You kept me like a secret, I kept you like an oath”. That is boss-level songwriting. Anyway, here’s the music video / short film starring Dylan O’Brien.

Taylor's string of music videos with famous young movie stars playing her awful ex boyfriend continues with this one, the directorial debut of her friend Blake Lively. It's pretty fun

I have not been shy at how much I do not care for Swift as a person but 1989 is absolutely brilliant. I think it's one of the best records of the last 20 years. Credit where credit is due.

Wait... Phoebe Bridgers and Phoebe Waller-Bridge aren't the same person?
