Fans who have listened to the deluxe version of Taylor Swift’s Red album have heard alternate versions of some songs found on the standard version of the album. Taylor did that in an effort to give fans insight about some of the songs.
“I wanted people to hear where the songs start,” she said. “The demo of “Red” was a song that made me feel like the record could open up and be something different than what I had previously thought. And “State of Grace” is a song that is so heavy hitting but it’s about such a delicate emotion and I wanted to portray that delicate emotion in a delicate way. The same thing with “Treacherous.” The song became very big but it started off really, really small. I want people to see those original places where those songs started off.”
The deluxe version of Red is available exclusively at Target. Taylor is winding down the North American dates of her RED Tour and will take the tour to Australia later this year. Watch Taylor’s “Red” music video >>
