Taylor took to Twitter this morning to make the announcement. She wrote, “Hi! Saw you guys got Wildest Dreams trending on tiktok, thought you should have my version.”
Though Taylor is new to TikTok, her presence on the app has been massive since she first joined. Last month,Swift created a TikTok account and posted her first-ever video. To the tune of UK rapper Dave’s “Screwface Capital” and its line “My outstanding payments swift like Taylor,” Taylor cycled through aesthetics based on her most recent releases–folklore, evermore, Fearless (Taylor’s Version), and Red (Taylor’s Version), which she announced during the video.
Earlier last month, Swift shared a teaser on social media with a series of jumbled letters emerging from an animated fault that confirmed Phoebe Bridgers and Chris Stapleton as collaborators on her upcoming re-recorded version of Red. The singer-songwriter previously announced that Ed Sheeran would also be a guest on the album.
Sheeran appeared on the original Red album and confirmed in a recent interview he’d re-recorded his duet part for the song “Everything Has Changed.”
The word teaser also revealed a few other clues regarding certain tracks that would appear on Red (Taylor’s Version) including the 10-minute version of “All Too Well” and “Ronan,” an iTunes exclusive track that Swift dedicated to four-year-old Ronan Thompson’s who died from cancer. Billboard previously confirmed that Swift was able to re-record the song for her version of Red with the permission of Ronan’s mother.
“Musically and lyrically, Red resembles a heartbroken person,” Swift previously shared about the release. “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.”
