Taylor Swift surprises fans with rerecorded Wildest Dreams
The singer-songwriter released the track as the original recording started trending on TikTok
Taylor Swift gave fans a surprise gift on Friday: her rerecorded version of Wildest Dreams.
The original version of the song, released in 2014, has been trending on TikTok lately, with people using it alongside videos in which the camera slowly zooms in on their face.
Swift has been rerecording her first six albums following a dispute with her old label.
On Friday morning, Swift posted a clip to TikTok with the new version of Wildest Dreams, along with the caption, “Someone said slow zoom makes you look like the main character I said make it Taylor’s Version pls.” Two hours later, she posted another video using the rerecording, with on-screen text reading, “You set a date in November with Red but then someone mentions 1989,” referencing her two different albums, which are both slated to be rereleased .
She also posted the update to Twitter, writing, “Hi! Saw you guys got Wildest Dreams trending on TikTok, thought you should have my version.”
Swift joined TikTok last month and has already amassed 4 million followers.
Here’s Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version), along with the original below.

Taylor Swift Drops New Version of ‘Wildest Dreams’: ‘Thought You Should Have My Version’
Swift said the song’s re-recording and subsequent release was inspired by its popularity on TikTok, saying on Twitter, “saw you guys got Wildest Dreams trending on tiktok, thought you should have my version.”
Swift will be able to collect a larger share of the royalties with the new version of “Wildest Dreams,” dubbed “Taylor’s version” than with the original version, which is part of a catalog of her past work recorded for the label Big Hit Machine that she’s sought unsuccessfully to buy control over.
Taylor Swift was once again keeping her fans on their toes as she dropped the newest version to her 2014 single “Wildest Dreams,” after the original started trending on TikTok on Friday.
TikTok users were pairing the song with the app’s slow zoom trend.
“Someone said slow zoom makes you look like the main character I said make it Taylor’s Version pls #wildestdreamstaylorsversion #swifttok #slowzoom,” wrote Swift, 31, on TikTok alongside a clip of the new version of the song.
She also teased on the video she “felt cute might drop the whole song later” — and the singer-songwriter delivered shortly after.
“Hi! Saw you guys got Wildest Dreams trending on tiktok, thought you should have my version 😘😘😘😘,” Swift wrote on Twitter alongside a link to “Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version).”
And without fail, Swifties flooded social media with their hilarious reactions.
One fan wrote “taylor watching us freaking out like:” alongside a clip from the 2014 movie Mean Girls.
Taylor Swift stuns fans with surprise re-recording of ‘Wildest Dreams’: ‘Here she is!’
Perhaps we should have seen this in hindsight.
Taylor Swift has yet again surprised fans with new music
a new version of “Wildest Dreams” – after dropping two albums (“Folklore” and “Evermore”) without much warning in 2020.
“Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version)” is off her Grammy-winning 2014 album “1989.”
The release comes as a particular shock given that she hasn’t yet debuted any singles off her re-recorded “Red (Taylor’s Version)” album, due Nov. 19.
“Someone said slow zoom makes you look like the main character I said make it Taylor’s Version pls,” Swift captioned in a TikTok post announcing the re-recording (and appearing to capitalize on a TikTok trend). The text on the video itself reads: “If you guys want to use my version of wildest dreams for the slow zoom trend, here she is!”
