In addition to releasing her re-recorded Red album this week, Taylor Swift will also be debuting a short film for her song All Too Well. Written and directed by Swift, the film also stars Sadie Sink (Stranger Things/Fear Street) and Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner/Teen Wolf).
“November 12. Remember it,” Swift wrote, breaking the news in a 30-second Instagram teaser trailer video that shows an old-fashioned car driving down an autumnal back rock in the woods.

All Too Well has become one of Swift’s most iconic breakup anthems. While the original song is around five minutes long, Swift previously announced Red (Taylor's Version) would feature a 10-minute version of All Too Well (which will presumably be the centre of the short film).
Swift announced last month the re-recorded album would be out a week earlier than originally planned. The 30-track project also features collaborations with Phoebe Bridgers, Ed Sheeran, and Chris Stapleton, as well as the single Ronan.

The original Red album was released in 2012 and featured seven singles, four of which peaked inside the top 10 of the US Billboard Hot 100: the lead single We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together topped the chart, whereas Begin Again, I Knew You Were Trouble, and Red reached numbers eight, two, and six, respectively. The album expanded her artistry beyond her previous country-pop style, and combined pop, country, rock, folk and electronic elements.
The album’s title refers to what Swift described as the tumultuous “red” emotions that were evoked from the unhealthy romance she was experiencing during the album’s conception.
Swift said, “Musically and lyrically, Red resembled a heartbroken person. 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.”
Swift first announced her intention to re-record her first six albums – released between 2006 and 2017 – in 2019 in an attempt to own the masters to her original music amid her ongoing battle with Scooter Braun. She began re-recording her back catalogue last November.
