More About 1989 (Taylor’s Version)
Released in 2014 and named for her birth year, the original “1989” signified a sonic rebirth. Taylor had shed the Nashville country roots of her first four studio albums and announced herself a full-fledged pop superstar.
1989 (Taylor’s Version) takes that version of Swift — then in her mid-20s, living in New York, prepared to take on the world with an arsenal of ’80s synth sounds and a new producer named Jack Antonoff — and includes five unreleased “vault” tracks that deliver more clues about the artist she was then.
Previous ‘Taylor’s Version’ releases have been more than conventional re-recordings, arriving with new music, Easter eggs and visuals that deepen understanding of her work. The project — the fourth of six rereleases — was instigated by music manager Scooter Braun’s purchase and sale of her early catalogue and represents Swift’s effort to control her own songs and how they’re used.
Taylor’s The Eras Tour also released in the North American theatres this month and became the highest-opening concert film of all time.
