Taylor Swift has announced details of the re-recorded of her 2014 album 1989. In a tweet posted on Thursday morning she confirmed that the latest Taylor’s Version album will be released on October 27, stating that the bonus material on this version of the album is "so insane."
"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," she tweeted. "I can’t believe they were ever left behind. But not for long!"

The Max Martin-produced 1989 was released nine years ago and featured the singles "Shake It Off" and "Bad Blood." The re-recorded version will be the latest in Swift's long-running move to take control of her music after the masters to her first six albums were sold to music industry mogul Scooter Braun in 2019. In July she released Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), a re-recorded version of her fourth studio album and one that saw her become the first female artist in history to earn 12 chart-topping albums.
Swift is currently in the middle of her huge "Eras" stadium tour and recently announced the European leg, which will take place in summer 2024.
