Run (From The Vault)

Feat. Ed Sheeran | RED (Taylor's Version) [2021]

“Run” is a song recorded by Taylor, featuring singer-songwriter and friend Ed Sheeran, for her re-recorded album, RED (Taylor’s Version) [2021], which is a re-recording of her 2012 album RED. “Run” marks their third collaboration.

Background and Release

Following the dispute regarding her masters, Taylor announced RED (Taylor’s Version), a re-recording of her 2012 album RED, on June 18, 2021. Alongside the deluxe edition of the album, she revealed she would release nine songs, all dubbed “From The Vault” that did not make the 2012 album, one of them being “Run.” Ed Sheeran told Capital FM in September 2021 that he always prefered the song over “Everything Has Changed“, which is the duet that made it on the original version of RED:

«We wrote 'Run' and then we wrote 'Everything Has Changed' maybe like a week later. And I remember always thinking, 'Well, 'Run' is the one that’s gonna make the album.' It was always my favorite. But 'Everything Has Changed' just ended up sounding better because we produced them differently or whatever. So 'Run' has just been there for years and years. I’ve never really wanted to nudge Taylor about it – because it’s her song. But I’ve always been secretly hoping that one day she’d be like, 'Hey, this song was cool!' And so we recorded that and it’s really great! I’m so happy it’s seeing the light of day.»
