Taylor Swift drops “1989 (Taylor’s Version)”

Nine years after its original release date of October 27, 2014, Taylor Swift has released the

re-recorded version of her fifth album, "1989." Featuring fresh renditions of fan-favorites

such as "Style," "Blank Space," "Shake It Off," and "Wildest Dreams," the singer returned

from her albums. These tracks are titled "‘Slut!'," "Say Don't Go," "Now That We Don't
