Taylor Swift releases another re-recorded song just in time for the holidays
Nearly two weeks after dropping "Red (Taylor's version)," the singer released a re-recorded version of her hit holiday classic song, "Christmas Tree Farm."
The new version is reimagined with a 70-piece orchestra and a cozier old-timey feel.MORE: Taylor Swift's 'Red (Taylor's Version)' has arrived
"This version is amazing because it feels like that more sorta laid back Christmas feel of doing all your shopping and relaxing by a fire, and it's definitely that old school Christmas feel," Swift told Amazon Music in a video that shared a glimpse of her recording the song at Abbey Road Studios in London.
The holiday song is inspired by Swift's childhood growing up on a Christmas tree farm in Pennsylvania, and was written while celebrating with family over the holidays in 2019.
"Christmas Tree Farm" is the latest in Swift's ongoing effort to remake her legendary tracks. Earlier this year, the singer released "Fearless (Taylor's Version)" and on Nov. 12, she dropped the re-recorded version of her fourth studio album, "Red," which includes a 10-minute version of her hit song, " All Too Well ," as well as several new tracks from the vault.MORE: Taylor Swift's new Christmas song and video 'Christmas Tree Farm' drops overnight
The album has also already broken records. Last week, Swift scored her tenth number one album on the Billboard 200 chart with "Red (Taylor's Version)." She also sold 369,000 physical copies of the album, marking the biggest sales week for any album in 2021.
"I would never have thought it was possible to go back and remake my previous work, uncovering lost art and forgotten gems along the way, if you hadn't emboldened me," Swift wrote in an Instagram post the day "Red (Taylor's Version)" was released." "Red is about to be mine again, but it has always been ours."
