The fans were right! Taylor Swift is rerecording the Red album next.

In case you somehow forgot, Swift has been busy rerecording her old music after her former label sold the master recordings to Scooter Braun, who later sold them to an investment group. Swift is passionate about artists owning their own work and decided to take drastic—but extremely welcomed—measures to reclaim her first six albums.

While Fearless was the first on Swift's list, the singer just announced that her iconic fourth studio album is the next in line. Here's everything we know.

Red (Taylor’s Version) will be released on November 19. 

“I’ve always said that the world is a different place for the heartbroken,” she wrote in her statement. “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, the next album I'll be releasing is my version of Red.

“Musically and lyrically, Red resembled a heartbroken person,” Swift continued. “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. 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.”

There will be 30 songs on Red (Taylor’s Version).

Just like Fearless, the rerecording of Red will include a slew of never-before-heard material. “Sometimes you need to talk it over (over and over and over) for it to really be…over,” Taylor Swift added. “Like your friend who calls you in the middle of the night going on and on about their ex, I just couldn't stop writing. This will be the first time you hear all 30 songs that were meant to go on Red.

One song is 10-minutes long.

“And hey, one of them is even ten minutes long,” Swift concluded her statement. “Red (Taylor's Version) will be out on November 19.”
