Jack Antonoff has no time for people who want to unnecessarily shorten songs.
“All Too Well” is included on Red (Taylor’s Version), a newly re-recorded edition of her 2012 album, Red. The updated collection also features a 10-minute version of “All Too Well,” which Antonoff co-produced alongside Swift. Billboard combined the data for both Taylor’s Version recordings of “All Too Well” in determining its Hot 100 position.
In a tweet celebrating the news, Antonoff writes, “Wild to be a part of a 10 minute number 1!”
He adds, “The takeaway of a 10 minute song hitting number 1 is to not accept the narrative that people have no attention spans. That idea is created by herbs who sell crap. Long live the audience who wants it ALL. I love you.”
“All Too Well” is now officially the longest song to ever hit number one on the Hot 100, besting Don McClean‘s eight-minute, 37-second “American Pie.”
