Finally, Ryan Adams’ much-awaited Taylor Swift cover album is here on iTunes. There couldn’t be any more reason for popstar Swift to feel elated right now. The snippets of the album were slowly teased by Adams to his fans.
First, a series of videos from the recording studio were unleashed and then the cover of Swift’s “Bad Blood” was uncovered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show last Tuesday. Then on Monday, 13 covers of songs from Swift’s “1989” album were also released, adding more joy among Adams’ and Swift’s fans, simultaneously.
Swift had earlier told her fans that Adams’ country music has been a huge inspiration for her song-writing. To share her excitement with her fans, she tweeted a lovely kitty meme just hours before the release of the album.
Initially, the entire collection was available on Apple Music, but soon it started streaming on Adams’ YouTube channel and Spotify too. The songs started previewing in early August and it became one of the most anticipated album releases for this fall.
In a conversation with Entertainment Weekly this summer, Swift said, expressing her honor for Adams, “He’s gotten some of the best musicians together to record this album and if the clips he’s released are any indication, this is going to be something really special.”
In a preview of the interview on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show, Adams said that he wanted “1989” covers to sound like the 1982 album, “Nebraska,” by Bruce Springsteen. Now it’s up to you fans where you would like to start streaming the album, iTunes or Spotify or the much-loved YouTube channel of Adams.
