Taylor Swift May Have Just Confirmed That She Is Re-Recording 'Red,' And I Am Living For It

Or did she?

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift is famous for her Easter eggs on social media that hint at what is coming next for her. Over the past few days, fans noticed a change in Swift's hair when she was accepting her win as Apple's songwriter of the year that was reminiscent of the "Red" era. Of course, this has caused widespread speculation that Swift has begun to re-record her masters.

Over the past few weeks, a lot of talk of her working on her previous album has begun, because she is now able to legally re-record her first five albums after her previous record company sold them to Scooter Braun.

Swift announced her intent to re-record in August 2019, but she simply had to bide her time. This November first rung in her eligibility to re-record most of her albums, from her 2007 self-titled album to her 2014 "1989" album. "Reputation" is still under contract and may not be able to be re-recorded and released until 2022. Fans have been speculating about which album will be re-recorded and released first and whether she'll re-record chronologically, but there has been no official word from Taylor herself. Fans have been digging, though, and making reasoning videos, with all signs pointing towards "Red." Between the hair and Swift talking about the original ten-minute version of her landmark-heartbreak song "All Too Well" in a recent podcast, fans are convinced it can't be any other album except "Red."

And now, Taylor Swift has all but confirmed this with a single Instagram post.

I am SCREAMING. Swift posted this Sunday afternoon, and while the photo itself is simple enough, the caption is catching the attention of Swifties everywhere.

"Not a lot going on at the moment" is what is printed on Taylor's shirt in the iconic music video of her song "22," a single on the "Red" album. It is also on the homemade shirt I wore to the "1989" tour when I was fifteen. Many Swifties think this is a clear sign that she's in the studio re-recording "Red," but Swift made a very similar post back in April that we now know was when she was making "Folklore." This post could mean anything, but it definitely means something. Every move Swift makes is planned out, and her media rollout is always legendary. (Did I mention this post was made on the 22nd?) While we can't always accurately predict Swift's next move, I, along with many people, will be anxiously awaiting her next announcement.

Last night at the 2020 American Music Awards, Taylor told everyone that she is currently re-recording her masters in the same studio she originally recorded them in which made the anticipation even more exciting.

Taylor has already gifted us with so much in 2020, but I know now that all I want for Christmas is the re-release of "Red" and that ten-minute cry break of "All Too Well."

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
