Taylor Swift finally announces ‘1989 (Taylor’s Version)’ and its release date

Taylor Swift delighted Swifties as she announced the re-record of her 2014 album, 1989, following the release of her Speak Now (Taylor’s Version).

The Grammy-winning musician took to her Instagram in the wee hours of Thursday, August 10, to share the exciting news with her fans.

“Surprise!! 1989 (Taylor’s Version) is on its way to you [coming soon emoji]!,” the singer wrote in the caption alongside the image of what seems like a new album cover.

Swift shared that the “1989 album changed my life in countless ways,” and it “fills me with such excitement” to announce the new version.

The Blank Space singer also dubbed it as her “most FAVORITE re-record” and announced 5 From The Vault tracks which are “so insane.”

She concluded the post with, “I can’t believe they were ever left behind. But not for long! Pre order 1989 (Taylor’s Version) on my site [cool emoji]”


The rerecorded album follows the release of Fearless (Taylor’s Version), Red (Taylor’s Version) and Speak Now (Taylor’s Version).

Why is Taylor Swift re-recording her albums

Taylor Swift has been on a mission to re-release all her albums from before 2019 after Scooter Braun purchased the label she worked for, Big Machine Records.

The singer had signed on with Big Machine Records, owned by music executive Scott Borchetta, in 2005, when she was only 13. Swift released her first single Tim McGraw in 2006.

She released the albums Taylor Swift (2006), Fearless (2008), Speak Now (2010), Red (2012), 1989 (2014) and Reputation (2017).

When the label was being sold to Braun, the singer penned a lengthy note revealing how she was not given the opportunity to buy her own music.

In a bid to take ownership of her work and not be associated with the people who “tried to dismantle” her work, the singer has been releasing re-records with (Taylor’s Version) written next in the titles.
