“This instant is a mirror of the forest we’ve explored and our unwavering love for one another, even in the deepest shadows. With immense thanks and wonder, I offer you my interpretation of 1989. It was holding out for you. Taylor.

The Grammy winner’s fourth re-recording, 1989 (Taylor’s Version), was released a few months after her July release of Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) and after the 2021 re-releases of Fearless and Red.

Swift made the announcement that she will be revisiting her Grammy-winning fifth studio album, which marked her first venture into pop music and her first collaboration with Jack Antonoff, on stage at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium on August 9, the last stop of her Eras Tour in the United States.

Thus, here we are on the final night of the Eras Tour’s American leg on the ninth day of the eighth month of the year. As you may have seen, the show has a few new clothes. As she revealed the record’s cover art and release date on the big screen, she informed the audience, “There’s something that I’ve been planning for a really, really, ridiculously, embarrassingly long time, and instead of telling you about it, I think I’ll just sort of show you.”

The hitmaker went on, “To be completely honest, the five From The Vault tracks are so outrageous that this is my most FAVORITE re-record I’ve ever done. It’s unbelievable that they were ever abandoned. Not for long, though!
