Taylor Swift is officially dropping album ‘1989 (Taylor's Version)' next – here’s all the news including the release date and which songs will be on the track list including the songs from the vault.
And we don't have long to wait for the release date of 1989 (Taylor's Version) as it comes out on 27th October 2023 despite Tay's busy schedule on The Eras Tour.
To make things even more poetic, the 27th October is the exact same date the original album came out nine years ago! It was her fifth album in her early career and includes fan-favourite songs like 'Blank Space', 'Style' and 'Clean'.
That means soon we get to revive the iconic 2014 Tay era and all the bops that come along with it - pretty much what dreams are made of!
So, let’s take a look at all the details, from the brand new songs and the tracks from The Vault, to the release date of '1989 (Taylor's Version)'...
'1989 (Taylor's Version)' will be released on October 27th – so get those countdowns on!
Her last re-release was 'Speak Now – Taylor's Version' in July, so we are well and truly being treated this year!
The songstress revealed that '1989 - Taylor's Version' is actually her favourite re-record so far, so we know this is going to be music to our ears.
She said in the announcement: "Surprise!! 1989 (Taylor’s Version) is on its way to you! The 1989 album changed my life in countless ways, and it fills me with such excitement to announce that my version of it will be out October 27th.
"To be perfectly honest, this is my most FAVORITE re-record I’ve ever done because the 5 From The Vault tracks are so insane. I can’t believe they were ever left behind. But not for long!"

The artwork for '1989 - Taylor's Version' is pretty different compared to her original sepia-tone themed album cover, but continues to have the classic Tay vibe to it.
The new album artwork shows a windswept Taylor laughing with her signature red lip on, with a bright blue sky background and seagulls flying around.
The blue and white theme definitely still embodies the elements of '1989' that we all know and love!
