Taylor Swift's re-recording of '1989' is here: 'It's been waiting for you'


“1989 (Taylor’s Version)” is finally here!

Taylor Swift released the re-recorded edition of her 2014 album today, marking a significant moment in her career.

She reintroduced herself by posting photos from the album shoot on Instagram.

“My name is Taylor and I was born in 1989,” she said in her caption.

In a handwritten letter, the singer looked back on her journey so far and expressed gratitude at where she is now.

"I was born in 1989, reinvented for the first time in 2014, and a part of me was reclaimed in 2023 with the re-release of this album I love so dearly,” Taylor said. “Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine the magic would you sprinkle on my life for so long.”

She added, “This moment is a reflection of the woods we've wandered through and all this love between us still glowing in the darkest dark. I present to you, with gratitude and wild wonder, my version of 1989.”

She signed the letter, “It's been waiting for you. Taylor."

"1989" holds some of Taylor's top hits like "Blank Space," "Style," "Shake It Off," and "Bad Blood." The re-recorded version also includes the vault tracks "Is It Over Now?," "Now That We Don't Talk," "Say Don't Go," and "Suburban Legends.

Taylor has been re-recording her old albums amid a legal battle to gain ownership of her old songs.

In 2021, she released the “Taylor’s Version” of the albums “Fearless” and “Red.”

Just last July, she released “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)” with a music video for “I Can See You (Taylor’s Version) (From the Vault),” starring Taylor Lautner, Joey King, and Presley Cash.

Taylor recently made waves with “The Eras Tour Concert Film.” For the tour, she is set to visit Europe and Asia next year.

A week before the release of “1989 (Taylor’s Version),” she also dropped the EP “The Cruelest Summer.”
