Taylor Swift drops new version of her hit song “Wildest Dreams”
American singer Taylor Swift has gotten her fans wild with excitement as she released a new version of her hit single “Wildest Dreams“.
The music sensation’s surprise comes on Friday, 17 September 2021, after the original version of the song from the 1989 album had gone viral on TikTok.
Sharing the surprise news, Swift tweeted: “Hi! Saw you guys got “Wildest Dreams” trending on TikTok, thought you should have my version.“
Since the controversial sale of her master recordings to Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, who later sold them to Shamrock Holdings, the music sensation has been re-recording all her old songs and tags them, Taylor’s version.
Her first re-recorded album, Fearless (Taylor’s Version), was released in April with several bonus tracks added.
Taylor Swift first released “Wildest Dreams” in her album 1989 – which won her a Grammy award in 2014.
The release of “Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version)” comes off as a shock to fans as everyone is expecting the singer to debut singles from her incoming re-recorded Red (Taylor’s Version) album, which is due for release on 19 November.
The original version of the re-recorded single, “Wildest Dreams”, from seven years ago reached No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and went to No. 1 on the Mainstream Top 40 and Adult Top 40 charts.
Before releasing the full re-recording of the song, Swift released a 14-second excerpt writing: “Some said slow zoom makes you look like the main character I said make it Taylor’s Version pls… Felt cute might drop the whole song later.”
As she stated, it didn’t take long for her to post the full version of the song.
The full version came in a separate TikTok video where she posted footage of herself in overalls with the caption, “You set a date in November with Red, but then someone mentions 1989.”
