Ryan Adams Finished His 1989 Cover Album

Ryan Adams completed what he sought out to do.

Adams informed fans he intended to cover Taylor Swift’s mega 1989 record, but never in our wildest dreams did we think he’d finish it in three weeks! He uploaded bits and pieces of it along the way, beginning with “Welcome To New York.” Days later, he shared his take on “Out Of The Woods” and “All You Had To Do Was Stay” and “Bad Blood.”

When Swifty first heard about it, she exclaimed: “Is this true??????? I WILL PASS OUT. Cool I’m not gonna be able to sleep tonight or ever again and I’m going to celebrate today every year as a holiday. I’M CALM.”.

We’re not sure if she remained calm, but perhaps the Twitter feud Queen will wig out after hearing the full shebang. Adams confirmed his mission is complete, saying “Whole record is rough mixed now. What a blast!!!!”

He also shared preview snippets of “Style and “Blank Space,” trading out the glossy production for something mellow and dreamy.

We’re definitely looking forward to listening to Adams’ covers in full, and curious how Swift will react. She’s taking the extra effort online to control how her music is distributed, even deleting fan videos taken at her shows in an effort to firm her grip. It’s a bit late for her to retract her excitement now, but we imagine she’s genuinely flattered by the entire thing. Are YOU?
