A few months ago, when I initially picked up the ukulele, the first song I decided to learn was “All Too Well” by Taylor Swift. I’m a fan of Swift’s musical lyricism and the chords for the song were easy enough.
Months later, I would have never guessed my first ukulele song would be given its own short film.
In the Swift fandom, RED’s “All Too Well,” defied expectations and became a beloved classic after its first release nine years ago in 2012. Taylor herself has said before that she never expected the song to become so huge; it was never released as a single and it didn’t have a music video . . . but perhaps it will soon.
Tomorrow, in conjunction with the release of the re-recorded RED (Taylor’s Version), Taylor will be dropping All Too Well: The Short Film, starring Sadie Sink, Dylan O’Brien, and Taylor herself. The film will be out on YouTube at 7 pm Eastern. Hopefully, it will include the anticipated ten-minute version of “All Too Well.”
I definitely, can’t wait to get cozy this November 12, 2021, with my own favorite red scarf.
Happy RED-release everyone!
