Track of the Week

Message In A Bottle (Taylor's Version) - Taylor Swift


Taylor Swift is currently busy re-recording her music catalogue. Her latest release Red (Taylor's Version) scores Taylor her eighth consecutive Number 1 album, it features the entire original album re-recorded, along with a host of ‘vault’ tracks and rarities. Message In A Bottle (Taylor's Version) is one of the 'From The Vault' songs and features as the 25th song on the album.

'Cause you could be the one that I love
I could be the one that you dream of
A message in a bottle is all I can do
Standin' here, hopin' it gets to you

"Message in a Bottle" is a 1980s-influenced electropop song with synthesizers and a pulsating bass. Some critics praised the song's production and noted similarities between it and Swift's 2014 album, 1989. It is the only one of the nine "From the Vault" songs on Red (Taylor's Version) to have been co-written by Martin and Shellback, who worked with Swift on Red singles such as "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together", "I Knew You Were Trouble", and "22".
