Jake Gyllenhaal might want to steer clear of social media today.

Two months after Taylor Swift’s rollout of her re-recording of “Fearless,” the singer, 31, announced a release date for another do-over.

Fans have speculated for months that she would surprise Swifties with a June 18 midnight drop of “1989 (Taylor’s Version).” However, she announced on Friday that 2012’s “Red” will be the next re-recorded album on her agenda.

But it’s not happening swiftly. Fans won’t be able to listen to the second iteration of the album until November 19.

“I’ve always said that the world is a different place for the heartbroken,” Swift wrote in the announcement. “It moves on a different axis, at a different speed. Time skips backwards and forwards fleetingly. The heartbroken might go through thousands of micro-emotions a day trying to figure out how to get through it without picking up the phone to hear that old familiar voice. In the land of heartbreak, moments of strength, independence, and devil-may-care rebellion are intricately woven together with grief, paralyzing vulnerability and hopelessness. Imagining your future might always take you on a detour back to the past. And this is all to say, that the next album I’ll be releasing is my version of ‘Red’.”
