Taylor Swift on Rolling Stone podcast confirmed an explicit 'All Too Well' version 

On November 17, 2020, American songstress Taylor Swift opened up about the explicit 10-minute-long version of her song All Too Well from 2012's Red. The five-and-a-half-minute song was originally twice as long before Miss Tay Tay decided on eliminating seven verses from the fan-favourite track.

Elaborating more about the same, she said that All Too Well's lyrics included the 'F-word'. She also shared how her sound guy told her that he had burned a CD of it in case she wanted it. However, the Look What You Made Me Do singer realized the need for editing the song down when she took the CD home and listened to it.
