Taylor Swift’s new 10-minute version of “All Too Well” is not a minute too long, judging by reaction from the U.K.
Swift’s long-awaited re-recording of her fourth album Red (Taylor’s Version) dropped last Friday (Nov. 12), containing the lengthier cut of “All Too Well.” As she did the rounds of late-night TV, TayTay explained that the new version was how she had always intended it.
Swifties, we now know, are loving it.
Based on data from the first 48 hours in the chart week, “All Too Well (10 Minute Version)” will be the highest new entry on the U.K. chart, starting at No. 7. If it holds its momentum, “All Too Well” will give Taylor her 18th U.K. Top 10.
The Swift action doesn’t end there. She has two further entries in this week’s Top 20, “State of Grace (Taylor’s Version)” at No. 9 and “Red (Taylor’s Version)” at No. 18.
At the top of the First Look chart, which ranks singles based on the weekend’s sales and streaming activity, Adele and Ed Sheeran are locking horns once again.
Adele’s “Easy On Me” is in pole position, and chasing a possible fifth consecutive week at No. 1, while Ed Sheeran’s “Shivers” is just 1,000 combined sales behind at No. 2, the OCC reports.
The Official U.K. Singles Chart is published late Friday, local time.
