(AUDIO) Taylor Swift Offers Insight Through Deluxe Recordings

September 8, 2013

If you’ve listened to the deluxe version of Taylor Swift’s Red album you’ve heard alternate versions of some of the songs on the standard version of Red, and Taylor explains that she did that because she wanted to give fans some insight about some of the songs. “I wanted people to hear where the songs start,” she says. “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. And the same thing with ‘Treacherous’. The song became very big but it started off really, really small. So I want people to see those original places where those songs started off.” The deluxe version of Red is available exclusively at Target.
