Perhaps we should have seen this in hindsight. Taylor Swift once again surprised fans with new music – a remake of “Wildest Dreams” – after dropping two albums (“Folklore” and “Evermore”) without warning in 2020. “Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s version)” from her Grammy-winning album For 2014 “1989.” The release comes as a special shock given that she has yet to debut any singles from her album “Red (Taylor’s Version)” which was re-recorded on November 19. “Someone said slow zoom makes you look like the main character you said. Make it Taylor’s Version,” Swift wrote in a TikTok post announcing the re-recording (and seems to be capitalizing on the TikTok trend). The text on the video itself reads: “If you want to use my version of the wildest dreams for the slow-zoom trend, this is it!” Much like her album “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)” re-recorded earlier this year, Swift sounds more polished and mature on the new single, but just as heartbreaking and romantic. Some of the songs can be heard in the trailer for “Spirit Untamed,” which was released earlier this year. And Wildest Dreams didn’t exactly leave our cultural lexicon. Bridgeton fans will remember an instructive version of “Wildest Dreams” that appeared in the first season of the series that was released last December. Swift re-releases her first five albums – “Taylor Swift”; “Fear” (reissed in April 2021); “talk now”; “Red” (to be released in November); and “1989”—to gain a new sense of ownership of her music after music executive Scooter Brown bought and sold her lead recordings. As with any news of Swift, fans have collectively lost their minds. From 9 and now I’m crying,” maybankshalo wrote. “The fact that we’ve been expecting her to give up on her wildest dreams for months and now when we’re expecting red she surprises her drops it.” We’ll be twiddling with this all night long.
