Excellent news for impatient listeners: Red (Taylor's Version) is dropping sooner than expected, so ready your vocal cords and prepare to swoon over your favorite breakup songs and new love anthems. 

"Got some news that I think you’re gonna like," Swift tweeted on September 30. "My version of Red will be out a week earlier than scheduled (including the 4 disc vinyl) on November 12th ! Can’t wait to celebrate the 13th with you and our new/old autumn heartbreak album."

Originally, the album was set to be released on November 19, 2021. Why the change in date? Some social media sleuths believe it's out of respect for a rumored new Adele album, which might just be dropping on the 19th. Either way, we don't know about you, but we anticipate a few jam sessions in the near future.

Earlier this year, the cryptic Taylor Swift puzzle on social media, which provided fans clues about the forthcoming rerelease, sent everyone into a tailspin. Naturally, true devotees figured it out in the blink of an eye. 

Per the "Red" puzzle, Phoebe Bridgers will appear on "Nothing New," Chris Stapleton will sing on "I Bet You Think About Me," and Ed Sheeran—who already sang with Swift on the album's "Everything Has Changed"— will also be featured on "Run."
