Taylor Swift has set multiple new Billboard chart records with Red (Taylor’s Version), the re-recorded edition of her 2012 album. Released on November 12, Red (Taylor’s Version) is Swift’s tenth No. 1 debut, and her ten-minute update of “All Too Well” also became the longest song to appear on and top the Hot 100. The record had previously been held by Don McLean’s “American Pie,” which is just short of nine minutes long.

With the album landing atop the Billboard 200 and Hot 100, a feat she’d previously accomplished with last year’s evermore and folklore, Swift became the only artist to have topped both charts simultaneously three times. Red (Taylor’s Version) is the second release in Swift’s campaign to re-record all of her old material so as to retain control of her rights to the master tapes, following Fearless (Taylor’s Version) in the spring.
