Taylor Swift releases 1989 Taylors Version with five new vault tracks In an electrifying turn of events straight from the realm of dreams, Taylor Swift has unveiled 1989 (Taylor’s Version). The iconic singer dropped this album at the stroke of midnight on Friday, reviving her cherished 2014 record. This marks her fourth reimagined offering, following the loss of her original master recordings when her former label sold them in 2019.
With enthusiasm and gratitude, Swift took to Instagram to share her sentiments, saying, I was born in 1989, redefined myself in 2014, and now in 2023, I’m reclaiming a part of me through the re-release of this beloved album. I present to you my version of 1989.
Notably, this album boasts five previously unreleased tracks, aptly named From The Vault treasures. These additions, S—, Don’t Say Go, Now That We Don’t Talk, Suburban Legends, and Is It Over Now? accompany the familiar tunes.
Back in August, Swift had already hinted at “1989” being her next re-recorded album release during one of her “Eras Tour” performances. She enthusiastically declared it to be her “most cherished re-record” thus far, thanks to the exceptional hidden gems in the vault.
One could argue that Taylor Swift’s 1989 (Taylor’s Version)” stands out as her most popular album. This release features re-recorded renditions of chart-topping hits like “Shake it Off,” “Bad Blood,” and “Blank Space,” all of which claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Notably, 1989 marked a significant shift in Swift’s musical style as it firmly embraced the pop genre, a departure from her earlier country-pop albums.
In 2016, 1989 garnered substantial recognition with 10 Grammy nominations, ultimately securing three wins in categories such as Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album, and Best Music Video for “Bad Blood.”
Following her 2019 announcement to re-record her first six albums, Swift has already released Taylor’s Version albums for Red, Speak Now, and Fearless, alongside 1989.
Fans eagerly anticipate her re-recording of the 2018 album “Reputation” and her 2006 self-titled debut album, “Taylor Swift,” in the future.
