Hey Swifties and music lovers alike,
Amidst the swirling whispers, speculations, and what seems like an endless train of tabloid fodder, one thing has been cleared up regarding Taylor Swift’s re-recorded classic album, “1989 (Taylor’s Version)”: Matty Healy of The 1975 won’t be making an appearance.
The Healy-Swift Conundrum: Taylor Swift’s spokesperson informed Billboard that “neither Matty Healy nor [The] 1975 are on this album,” quelling the hot UK reports claiming the inclusion of the British band’s iconic frontman on the re-imagined 2014 album. Interestingly, Taylor and Matty, rumored to have been a brief romantic item earlier this year, were caught leaving the renowned Electric Lady Studios in Greenwich Village this past May. Matty’s presence at three of Swift’s Nashville Eras Tour shows further fueled this gossip. But as of now, neither camp has confirmed these rumors.
Taylor’s Revelations on “1989”: Taylor recently poured her heart out to fans, expressing the significant impact “1989” had on her life. With chart-toppers like “Bad Blood,” “Shake It Off,” and “Blank Space,” who can argue? Her excitement is palpable, especially about the “5 From The Vault” tracks. In her words, “I can’t believe they were ever left behind. But not for long!”
This much-anticipated re-recorded album isn’t a first. It marks her fourth venture since announcing her re-recording initiative back in 2019. And let’s not forget, the preceding versions have all claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200, with “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)” and “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)” enjoying two-week reigns and “Red (Taylor’s Version)” boasting a week at the top.
What We Know So Far: For the eager beavers, snippets from the “1989” redux are out. “Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version)” made a splash on TikTok in November 2021, while “This Love (Taylor’s Version)” graced the trailer for Amazon Prime’s show, ‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’. Plus, Swifties are in for a treat: a special bonus track on the tangerine edition of the 1989 vinyl, which alongside three Deluxe Poster Edition CDs, is up for grabs exclusively at Target. For the vinyl aficionados, the re-release will have non-Target exclusive versions in stunning shades like aquamarine green and the sunshine-y “Sunrise Boulevard.”
