In other releated news, on Thursday night, November 11th, Taylor Swift has already started her promotion marathon and was a guest of the program “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon“. In the interview, she told the whole story behind the 10-minute version of “All Too Well”.
“Basically, when I was writing the album, I knew I had a favorite, which was just ‘All Too Well’. But generally, my personal favorites aren’t songs that end up being singles or having music videos. (…) But what happened is that this song has also become a fan favorite. It was lined up” commented Taylor.
“When this song was written, I was going through a very, very sad time. And I was 22 years old, I was in band rehearsals, so I showed up there and I was really pissed, everybody could see it. I was not good company that day. So I started playing the guitar and kept repeating the same chords. So the band joined me and I started improvising with what I was going through. Then the song started to build in great intensity, and the song ended up having 10 to 15 minutes in that process” she recalled.
