Following her successful Eras Tour, Taylor Swift is planning on breaking even more records. Her album “1989” is getting its very own Taylor’s version. The album announcement came from an Instagram post that the singer herself shared with her fans.

The singer posted a lovely message to her fans on Twitter and said: “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 27. 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 post has garnered over 1 million likes and 43 million views, showing anticipation and fan excitement.

The album announcement created a lot of buzz and fans are excited to hear their favorite songs re-recorded.

Why Taylor Swift is Re-recording Albums

Taylor Swift embarked on a mission to reclaim music rights over her songs by re-recording and releasing her initial six albums. The first six albums’ masters were sold by Big Machine Records to Scooter Braun in 2019, and subsequently to a private equity firm. Taylor openly expressed her disapproval and disappointment and shared that she will be re-recording all the albums she originally produced under Big Machine.

In a post shared on social media in 2020, she promised: “I’ve recently commenced the process of re-recording my earlier music, and it has already proven to be an exhilarating and artistically satisfying endeavor. I have a multitude of surprises in the works.

Taylor definitely made sure to keep her promises. Not only did she surprise fans with an album re-release, but she also provided new music videos for her title tracks.

The Albums Taylor Swift Already Re-recorded

The following Taylor Swift albums have been re-recorded:

  1. Fearless (Taylor’s Version) in 2021
  2. Red (Taylor’s Version) in 2021
  3. Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) in 2023

How Taylor Swift Gave Hints for 1989 Taylor’s Version

Fans already started speculating about Taylor Swift’s upcoming re-release, when the singer dropped the music video for “I Can See You”. The music video ended with a sign on a bridge that read “1989TV”.

Additionally, she went for blue outfits on her concert tour on August 9th, which are the colors associated with the “1989” album. Taylor Swift’s website also turned from purple (while she was promoting her Speak Now Taylor’s Version) to blue for the upcoming re-release.
