I love Taylor Swift, always have always will. But I'm also more of a rock girl, and when I heard that Ryan Adams was covering Taylor's album, I was more than just a little excited (there was jumping involved). It's so unexpected, but that makes it so great. Judging from the previews, the 80s vibe seems to be even stronger on Ryan's cover versions, and some songs give me the impression that Taylor Swift + Ryan Adams = Bruce Springsteen …Which again, unexpected, but in the best possible way.
It is also always a nice thing to see different genre come together, because there's really no reason why a Ryan Adams fan can't enjoy a Taylor Swift song (or vice versa). So whether you're a fan of Taylor, Ryan, both, or maybe even neither check out Ryan's 1989, you might just be surprised:
The digital version will be available on monday, and copies on CD and vinyl are to follow.
And if you can't wait until monday, then scroll through Ryan's Instagram for a couple sneak peaks:
Peace, Love, and Lobsters
