This was a fairly quiet week for new album announcements; perhaps getting towards the end of year and the massive number of releases set in the coming weeks has slowed down any mention of planned new music. There is one that stands out, due to both the artist's talent and the novelty of what he is doing. Ryan Adams officially announced the release of his full album cover of Taylor Swift's 1989.
It seems the perfect topper for Adams' prolific run over the past couple of years (though I'm sure he'll keep going), and validation for Swift's songwriting, considering Adams himself has long been regarded as an excellent songwriter.
Ryan Adams' 1989 will be released on Monday!
