Taylor Swift made Swifties happy when she said she would re-record her 2014 album, 1989, after putting out Speak Now (Taylor’s Version).
The Grammy-winning singer posted the news on Instagram early on Thursday, August 10, to let her fans know about it.
“Oh, no!! You can expect 1989 (Taylor’s Version) very soon (insert appropriate emoji here)! The singer used the words “new album cover” in the description of the artwork.
Swift said that the “1989 album changed my life in so many ways” and that the news of the new version “makes me so excited.”
The Blank Space artist called it her “most FAVORITE re-record” and said 5 From The Vault songs are “so insane.”
“I can’t believe they were ever left behind,” she said at the end of the post. Not for long, though! You can pre-order 1989 (Taylor’s Version) on my website [cool emoji].”
After Fearless (Taylor’s Version), Red (Taylor’s Version), and Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), the rerecorded album came out.
When will 1989 (Taylor’s Version) by Taylor Swift come out?
The singer said the record will come out on October 27, 2023.
Taylor Swift is re-recording her songs, but why?
Since Scooter Braun bought Big Machine Records, the company where Taylor Swift worked, she has been trying to re-release all her albums from before 2019.
In 2005, when she was only 13, the singer signed with Scott Borchetta’s record label, Big Machine Records. Tim McGraw was her first song, and it came out in 2006.
She put out Taylor Swift in 2006, Fearless in 2008, Speak Now in 2010, Red in 2012, 1989 in 2014, and Reputation in 2017.
When the record label was sold to Braun, the singer wrote a long letter about how she couldn’t buy her songs.
The singer has been re-recording with the words (Taylor’s Version) added to the titles. She wants to own her work without being linked with those who “tried to dismantle” it.
Tracklist for 1989 (Taylor’s Version) by Taylor Swift
