We "Bet You Think About" Taylor Swift's iconic career. 

The Grammy winner exclusively reflected on the legacy of her Red album during E! News' Daily Pop on Monday, Nov. 15.

"There are a lot of new-slash-old songs like the vault tracks," Swift explained of Red (Taylor's Version). "These are songs that nobody has heard before. I got a real buzz re-recording 'All Too Well,' the 10-minute version, because these are lyrics that have been written a long time ago but the fact that I've never really recorded them before, it was pretty insane." 

Swift made her directorial debut for the 10-minute All Too Well short film starring Dylan O'Brien and Sadie Sink

"It's a coming-of-age film about a very specific time in someone's life when you're between 19 and 20," Swift reflected. "You have one foot in childhood, one foot in adulthood, and you don't quite know where to stand and how fragile it makes you in that moment. We go through life, we get our hearts broken."

Swift dished on the "really special" experience stepping behind the camera.

"I'm so proud of it. It's a real relief," she joked. "We really wanted to commit to creating sort of a tiny short cinematic universe for the song that the fans cared so much about. We have a 10-minute version of 'All Too Well' so I figured, why don't we take this, really commit to it, expand upon it and I think it's really beautiful how it ended up being."

And, fans can relive Swift's personal journey alongside the epic re-recorded track.

"I think one of the nostalgic things about this for fans is going back in your life for where you were when that album came out," Swift shared. "I'm just feeling lots of nostalgic feelings but all the memories I'm feeling are with the fans over the years in concert. It's really a celebration of that bond that we have."
