Ryan Adams is recording a Taylor Swift's "1989" covers album
Ryan Adams has said on Twitter and Instagram that he's currently recording a full album of "1989" covers and Taylor Swift has expressed her excitment at lerning the news.
Earlier this morning, the story was brought to Swift's attention on social media site Twitter and she quickly reached out to Adams, asking him if it was true. Adams replied
Yes. Just finished Style. Badass tunes, Taylor. : ) We're sandblasting them and they're holding steady https://t.co/UaCOrnoVt7— Ryan Adams (@TheRyanAdams) August 6, 2015
He then shared a series of lyric sheets from the studio, and various progress reports; you can actually hear the first taste of his version of "Welcome To New York" below
As Adam said on his Twitter, his version of "1989" is influenced a bit by The Smiths.
