‘Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version)’ will become the singer-songwriter’s 37th Top 40 single in the UK if it remains in the chart until this Friday (September 24).

Earlier this year, ‘Love Story (Taylor’s Version)’ and the previously unreleased ‘Mr Perfectly Fine (Taylor’s Version)’ peaked at Number 12 and Number 30 respectively. Both tracks appear on ‘Fearless (Taylor’s Version)’, which was the first album to be re-recorded by Swift.

The singer is due to release the new version of her fourth record, ‘Red’ (2012), on November 19. It will contain “all 30 songs that were meant to go” on the original album, as well as collaborations with Phoebe Bridgers, Ed Sheeran and more.







A preview snippet of ‘Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version)’ was shared back in April as part of a trailer for DreamWorks’ film Spirit Untamed.
