Ryan Adams – 1989
Double vinyl LP pressing. 2015 release from the acclaimed singer/songwriter. Produced by Adams, the first news of this reinterpretation of 1989 was revealed on the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter’s Instagram with the post ‘Taylor Swift 1989 full album cover night 1. As played by the Smiths.’ Several subsequent posts of song snippets revealed much more range than that including a take on ‘Bad Blood’ that Vanity Fair called ‘a lovely Heartbreaker-era style version’ referencing Adams’ classic debut, a string quartet-enhanced version of ‘Blank Space,’ what Adams promised to be the ‘guaranteed saddest version of ‘Welcome to New York’ ever – or your tears back,’ and more.
