Very early this morning (Aug. 19), Ryan Adams shared a second preview of his rendition of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” yet another piece in his 1989 covers album, which is quickly taking shape.

As Adams notes in his tweet, he enlisted Nate Walcott -- who’s worked with the likes of Conor Oberst and M. Ward -- to play piano on the track.

By our count, there are only four more 1989 songs that Adams hasn’t covered (or at least he hasn’t shared excerpts on his socials yet). With the majority of the songs and a rough mix under his belt, Adams is well on his way to wrapping up his latest project.
