The massively successful pop artist has announced her newest rerecording, her 2014 chart-topper 1989.
She's not out of the woods yet- Taylor Swift has announced which of her albums will next undergo the rerecording treatment. Following the release of last month's Speak Now (Taylor's Version), this time, it's her 2014 entrance into pop, 1989.
The singer announced the release at the final show on the LA leg of her Eras tour.

Already a well accomplished artist at the time of its release, 1989 was a departure for Swift as it signaled a definitive pivot into the world of pop music. It is home to three number one singles, 'Shake It Off', 'Blank Space', and 'Bad Blood', as well as fan favourites 'Out of the Woods', 'Style' and 'Clean'.
1989 (Taylor's Version) will be available to listen to on 27th of October, which will be exactly nine years after the release of the original album. You can preorder it now.
The singer will also include 5 never-before-heard songs "from the vault" on the record, though she hasn't revealed their titles or if any of them are collaborations. Her past re-recordings have included songs from the vault as well, and these songs have had features from some of the biggest names in the music industry today: Ice Spice, Phoebe Bridgers, Fall Out Boy, Hayley Williams of Paramore and others.
"To be perfectly honest, this is my most FAVORITE re-record I’ve ever done," she gushed in the announcement later posted to social media, "because the 5 From The Vault tracks are so insane. I can’t believe they were ever left behind. But not for long!"
Surprise!! 1989 (Taylor’s Version) is on its way to you 🔜! 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… pic.twitter.com/JFYOWhBxhj
