Ryan Adams to Release “1989” – Yep, A Taylor Swift Cover Album!


At the beginning of August, Ryan Adams announced he would be recording a cover album of Taylor Swift’s 2014 hit record, “1989.” (You may have heard of some songs on it: Shake It Off, Blank Space, Bad Blood). Today, he tweeted the digital release date for the album: September 21!

After the initial announcement of the album, Taylor Swift responded as many of us did, with some freaking out:

Ryan was gracious with studio updates on Instagram, posting tons of videos featuring audio from the album. To nobody’s surprise, Ryan’s versions strayed from the originals, his Americana twang vibe in full swing.

And because Taylor Swift is just as excited as we are, she started a countdown until the release on Monday.

Does this mean Taylor Swift’s music will be back on Spotify via Ryan Adams?
