Taylor Swift released her new recording Fearless Album on April 9th and it makes us even more excited about their upcoming releases. While we have to wait a while for them to release their new record call Album, the next release may not be that far away. Since Swift loves tossing clues through Easter eggs, we’re pretty confident that it will be released 1989 (Taylor’s version) Next.
For starters, she has already started to specifically re-record this album. In the trailer for Untamed mind, she gave us a first look at her updated version of “Wiltest Dreams”. Fans have also noticed that she appears to be dropping Easter eggs in recent interviews. During their performance on Good morning America, she wore heart earrings that looked strikingly similar to the heart featured in her music video “Blank Space”. She has also worn many flowers in promos for Fearless (Taylor’s Version)which might be a nod to the “Blank Space” text “Rose Garden Filled with Thorns” and the “Wiltest Dreams” text “Red Lips and Rosy Cheeks”.
It’s also worth noting that Swift would benefit the most from her new addition 1989 Album. The whole goal of re-recording their albums is to own the master rights to the songs, and 1989 is filled with some of their biggest hits including “Blank Space”, “Shake It Off” and “Style”. Seriously think about how many shows and movies included “Welcome to New York”.
So when can we expect it 1989 (Taylor’s version)? Given that she teased and eventually released “Love Story (Taylor’s Version)” for the first time in December 2020 Fearless (Taylor’s Version) there will likely be a four month gap in April. That means we could consider a summer release date. During their performance on The late show with Stephen Colbert On April 13th, Swift referred to a handful of dates and numbers that Swifties believe could point towards the release date of the first single and album.
Most recently, Swift released new merchandise that some fans think are Easter eggs. The “Just a Summer Thing” collection looks strikingly similar to the collection 1989 Album – from the color scheme to the clouds – and even includes the text “Taylor Swift Est. 1989 ”on some merchs. Can it get any clearer? The title of the collection, which is a text by “Betty”, could also be an indication of the possible publication date. The following text in the song is “I’m only 17, I don’t know nothing,” which some fans believe may be announced on June 17th in May. During her acceptance speech for Pop Album of the Year, fans noticed that the recording studio behind her was actually a green screen. And when fans tracked down the actual picture, they found it was taken on June 17th.
While it is possible, Swift will announce 1989 (Taylor’s version) on June 17th and release the next day, since album releases usually take place on Friday, it’s more likely that she will release it a week later on June 25th. Not only does this build the momentum for album release and give Swift a chance to potentially release the first single, but guess what, 6 + 2 + 5. Yes, 13th BRB, grab our Polaroid camera and sunglasses while we get ready 1989 (Taylor’s version).
