Taylor Swift fans will wake up on Friday morning to find that only one of her re-recorded songs has come out … and it’s not a teaser track for “Red (Taylor’s version)”, which is set to be released in November. Instead, it was a new “Taylor’s version” of the song “Wildest Dream” from the “1989” album, which unexpectedly pushed that track forward in the picking sequence of the remake. Surprisingly, he must have had a reason for it.
“Hey!” He wrote on Twitter and Instagram. “You saw people trending tickets to Wildest Dreams, thought you should have my version.”
The “Wildest Dreams” ticket is growing in popularity because of the service’s “slow zoom” filter. Instead of benefiting from the song’s previous Big Machine rendering, Swift decided to release a new version of her song soon, which would probably have been held otherwise for her full “1989 (Taylor’s version)”. The full album remake is ready to come out in its gradual rollout.
The production credit that was released with the track at DSP seems to solve the mystery of who will co-produce 1989 (Taylor’s version). The manufacturers are listed as Christopher Rowe, Shellback and Swift. Shellback co-produced the original 2014 version with Max Martin, who apparently didn’t make the return trip to work on this re-recording. (Martin is certainly listed as a co-author with Shellback and Swift.) Roy is credited with working on the previous complete re-recording on Swift’s album, “Fearless (Taylor’s Edition)”.

“Red (Taylor’s version)” is set for November 19 release. Although the album is ready for pre-order, no single from that collection has been released yet.
In its original version from seven years ago, “Wildest Dreams” reached number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and moved up to No. 1 on the mainstream top 40 and adult top 40 list.
