Taylor Swift announces ‘1989 (Taylor’s Version)’ at ‘Eras Tour’ show

Taylor Swift has announced the re-recording of her fifth studio album ‘1989’.

The singer-songwriter played her sixth and final show at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California last night (August 9), wrapping up the 2023 North American leg of the ‘Eras Tour’.

Towards the end of last night’s concert, Swift instructed the crowd to look at the big screens as the artwork for ‘1989 (Taylor’s Version)’ appeared.


The re-worked album is due to arrive on October 27, 2023 – you can pre-order/pre-save it here. It’ll land on the ninth anniversary of the original hit record.

“Surprise!! 1989 (Taylor’s Version) is on its way to you ?!” Swift wrote on social media alongside the upcoming album’s official cover art.

“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!”

Details of the new ‘From The Vault’ songs are yet to be revealed.


Swift has already released the re-recorded versions of ‘Fearless’, ‘Red’ and ‘Speak Now’, the latter of which came out last month.
