The 11-time Grammy winner announced Friday that the next album on her re-recording venture would be 2012′s “Red” — the star’s first foray into full-fledged pop music after establishing herself as a country belle — set for release on Nov. 19.
“Musically and lyrically, Red resembled a heartbroken person,” she wrote in an Instagram post Friday. “Like trying on pieces of a new life, I went into the studio and experimented with different sounds and collaborators. And I’m not sure if it was pouring my thoughts into this album, hearing thousands of your voices sing the lyrics back to me in passionate solidarity, or if it was simply time, but something was healed along the way.”
Quickly becoming the number one trending topic on Twitter, the new album contains 30 tracks — which include such hits as “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” “I Knew You Were Trouble,” and “22” — dwarfing the original’s 19 tunes. The additional tracks will be “from the vault,” or songs recorded for the 2012 album but eventually cut.
