Listen to Ryan Adam’s Cover of Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood,’ Full ‘1989’ Album Arrives Monday

By Amanda Wicks

Throughout August and into September, Ryan Adams has taken to Instagram and Twitter to share a special project he’s been working on after wrapping up his most recent tour.

The singer-songwriter has been recording the entire Taylor Swift 1989 album. In past posts, Adams described the sound as more in line with The Smiths than the pop starlet’s style. Needless to say, fans the world over have grown more excited the more Adams has teased about the cover album.

Today, Adams announced a release date for his version of 1989, Monday, September 21. The tweet also revealed the album’s cover image, which shows off a moodier retro style than Swift’s Polaroid but still references the birds on her shirt.

For those who can’t wait until Monday, Adams shared news that the track “Bad Blood” premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio show this morning (Sept 17). Lowe interrupted normal programming on the station to play the song, revealing that Adams will be in the studio on Monday at 9am PT with a “special guest.” Hmm, wonder who.

Following the announcement, Taylor Swift went on Twitter to express her excitement. Sharing a countdown clock of sorts, Swift also said about how influential Adams has been on her own music. “This is surreal and dreamlike,” she wrote.

The album is now available for pre-order before it drops on Monday.
