Ryan Adams' Full-Length '1989' Album Is Here and Everyone (Including Taylor Swift) Is Freaking Out

By
A month after he began teasing the project, Ryan Adams has unveiled his full-length cover album of Taylor Swift's 1989.
The 40-year-old singer-songwriter began previewing the project, putting a new rock spin on Swift's '80s-inspired pop LP, on his Instagram account in August and drew praise from even Swift herself.
"Cool I'm not gonna be able to sleep tonight or ever again and I'm going to celebrate today every year as a holiday. I'M CALM," she tweeted upon learning about the covers. In the days leading up to its release, Swift has been counting down the hours on her Twitter.

The album was released in full at midnight Eastern time on iTunes and, interestingly enough, Spotify -- the same streaming service Swift has very publicly battled since her 1989 was released last year.
But even that couldn't stop Swift from going on a Twitter spree following Adams' album's release late Sunday, retweeting ecstatic fans' initial reviews.

A work of art is great when it can be interpreted differently & still be exceptional. Props to @TheRyanAdams@taylorswift13#ryanadams1989

So @TheRyanAdams remake of @taylorswift13's 1989 is giving me The Breakfast Club/Sixteen Candles vibes and I'M SO INTO IT. #RyanAdams1989

@RyanAdams just made #1989 speak to me. His full reworking has just landed. Sounds like a #RyanAdams album, a good one @taylorswift13

Nearly the entire album is also available now on Adams' official Vevo account -- though his version of the Imogen Heap co-penned track "Clean" is still missing.
Listen to his stripped-down take on "Shake It Off" below.
...and a version of "Wildest Dreams" that wouldn't feel out of place on country radio.
We're loving this decidedly somber spin on "How You Get the Girl."
