Taylor Swift’s new album, “Midnights,” is on the way, and Swifties are ready to hear some new music. The music superstar has been very, very busy since moving to her new record label, Republic, in 2019. First, she released her studio album “Lover,” then she dropped her sister albums, “Folklore” and “Evermore,” in 2020. And now that the singer officially owns everything she releases under Republic Records, she decided to rerecord her first six albums, which she never owned the masters to; her old label, Big Machine Records, and record executive, Scooter Braun, held on to them against her wishes and eventually sold them.
So far, Swift has rerecorded two of those albums, “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)” and “Red (Taylor’s Version),” and they even include never-before-heard tracks from Swift’s vault. Swift also directed a short film to go along with the longer version of “All Too Well.”
All this music might be hard to keep up with, so we’re here to update you on who all of Swift’s recent releases could be about. Right away, fans started speculating about who inspired the new songs based on the context clues and the original album timeline. And no, not all of them are about exes like Harry Styles or her current boyfriend, Joe Alwyn! Here’s who some of Swift’s songs could be about.
