Must List

This Red-inspired playlist is giving us *all* the feels

On September 30, Taylor Swift broke the news to Swifties everywhere that Red (Taylor's Version) will be released a week earlier than expected. The re-release of Swift's fourth studio album, Red, was originally supposed to hit streaming services on November 19 but will now be available worldwide on November 12. And while this is *everything* and more, there's still several weeks until Red (TV) is officially released. Taylor herself has designated Red the "new/old autumn heartbreak album" via Twitter, which pretty much sums up the rollercoaster of emotions that is "State of Grace" to "All Too Well" to "Begin Again." Red is a beautifully complex album that covers heartbreak, new love and everything in between, and we're oh-so excited to see what Taylor has in store for her fans next month. In the mean time, here are 18 songs that capture all those emotions and more.
