Taylor Swift has released the deluxe edition of her second surprise album Evermore on streaming services.
The expanded 17-track version, which was previously only available on vinyl and CD, includes two bonus songs. The country-pop vocal melodies and banjo riffs of “Right Where You Left Me” are a clear callback to Swift’s early days, given new life with a layer of polished production and purring electric guitars. “Trends change, rumors fly through new skies / But I’m right where you left me,” Swift sings on the track.
The more adventurous of the two, however, is “It’s Time to Go,” a subdued indie-folk anthem about moving on from one’s past: “That old familiar body ache / The snaps from the same little breaks in your soul / You know when it’s time to go.”
Both tracks have since received lyric videos to accompany the release of the deluxe album. Evermore dropped in December last year as a sister record to Folklore, with both albums featuring collaborators Bon Iver, Jack Antonoff and The National’s Aaron Dessner.
Last year, Swift also announced plans to re-record her first six albums after her previous label, Big Machine Records, sold the rights to those master recordings to Scooter Braun. While there have been scant updates about these re-recordings, an updated version of “Love Story” recently appeared in a Match.com commercial.
