Taylor Swift fans will know that the songstress is re-recording five of her first albums all over again in order to own the complete rights to her projects.

After having confirmed the albums she plans on re-creating, people have been speculating about which is next to drop, after she released ‘Fearless - Taylor’s Version’ on April 9, which featured six never-before-heard songs to the track list.

Following her appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, she dropped a series of Easter eggs - in true Taylor style - alluding to ‘1989’ being her next album to be in the works for re-release (and yes, we’re screaming too!).

'Wildest Dreams – Taylor's Version' has also recently been registered on Shazam so it's looking pretty likely that '1989' will in fact be the next re-recorded album.

That means we’d get to revive the iconic 2014 Tay era and all the bops that come along with it - even though she’s yet to officially confirm it herself.

However, fans reckon they’ve found so many clues that it almost makes sense, so let’s take a look at all the details, from the brand new songs to the release date.

Is there a new album cover for Taylor Swift’s re-recorded ‘1989’ album?

As Tay is yet to confirm whether ‘1989’ is definitely the next album dropping, she’s remained tight-lipped about any idea of what the artwork will look like for the album cover.

However, if ‘Fearless - Taylor’s Version’ is anything to go by, she’ll continue with her Sepia tone themed album cover, and re-create her original ‘1989’ cover.
