Taylor Swift to Release 1989 (Taylor’s Version) as the Next Re-Recorded Album


On the sixth night of her Eras Tour shows at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, Taylor Swift surprised her fans with an exciting announcement. The next re-recorded album from her catalog, 1989 (Taylor’s Version), will be released on October 27.

In a signature Swift move, the reveal coincided with the date 8/9 in a nod to the original album’s title. Using the segment reserved for her surprise songs, she teased her fans, “Here we are, the last night (of the tour) in the eighth month of the year … and the ninth day of the month.” Soon after, the video screen shared the announcement as the crowd erupted with excitement.


On social media, she revealed the cover along with a message: “Surprise!! 1989 (Taylor’s Version) is on its way to you! The 1989 album changed my life in countless ways, and it fills me with such excitement to announce that my version of it will be out October 27th. To be perfectly honest, this is my most FAVORITE re-record I’ve ever done because the 5 From The Vault tracks are so insane. I can’t believe they were ever left behind. But not for long!” 

The original 1989 was a pivotal moment in Swift’s career as she shifted her focus from country music to the pop genre. Not only did the album earn 10 Grammy nominations, but it also made Swift the first woman to win the Grammy for Album of the Year twice for her solo recordings. The rerecorded version will feature 21 songs, including hit songs such as “Bad Blood” and “Blank Space” along with five previously unreleased songs from The Vault.
