Taylor Swift 1989 Album: Release Date, New Track List And All The Details On Taylor's Version
21 April 2021, 15:38
Taylor Swift is thought to be dropping a new version of her ‘1989’ album and it’s already been heavily rumoured that Harry Styles could make a featured appearance on the project - here’s all the news including the release date and which songs will be on the track list.
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.
Release date of Taylor Swift’s re-recorded ‘1989’ album
Fans are pretty convinced that there’s a big announcement coming from Tay on May 14 - potentially a new track ‘from the vault’ or even an announcement to confirm ‘1989 - Taylor’s Version’.
As for a release date for the album, the main theories have speculated the following dates:
- June 4
- June 6
- June 25
So, all in all, fans are anticipating a June release date ready for those summer bops!
So here’s my theory - Stephen Colbert’s birthday is May 13th, his episode of L&O was May 14th, and spirits original release date was May 14th.. the new release date is June 4th. So what if Wildest Dreams is released 5/14 & 1989 (Taylor’s Version) is 6/4? https://t.co/YK1m7UYvZ6— EB (@ErikaBuis) April 14, 2021

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.
