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

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!
