Like all of the clips Adams has shared thus far, “Shake It Off” is just as much a transformation of the original as its predecessors.
There isn't yet a release date for the covers album, although Adams did tweet that the record is done and has a rough mix completed.
Ryan Adams is recording a full-album cover of Taylor Swift's '1989' and he just provided another tantalizing glimpse of what's to come.
Ryan Adams has shared his takes on two of Taylor Swift's massive hits: “Bad Blood” and “Shake It Off.”
After previewing his rendition of “Welcome to New York,” Ryan Adams has meticulously documented his second day working on his album of Taylor Swift covers.
What exactly comes to mind when you think of '1989'? Apparently, for Adams -- and her small army of fans -- the answer is Taylor Swift.
The titular single, due out Aug. 21, will be backed with two more new songs, “Yes or Run” and “Red Hot Blues.”
No disrespect to the original songs, but these covers take the source material to entirely new (and sometimes unexpected) places.
Even in this ever-changing digital world of music, the first track on an album, both past and present, serves as a master of ceremonies of sorts.
'Strangers Almanac,' in particular, has left a lasting imprint on the face of alt-country ever since its arrival 18 years ago.
