Taylor Swift's new album

Taylor Swift has released the album "1989 (Taylor's Version)."

Exactly 9 years ago, her fifth studio album, "1989," was released under the Big Machine Records label. It featured three massive hits - "Shake it Off," "Blank Space," and "Bad Blood," all of which topped the Billboard charts.

However, in 2018, Taylor's contract with Big Machine Records expired, leading her to sign with Republic Records. In 2019, the rights to her first six albums were sold to Ithaca Holdings, but Taylor decided to re-record all her tracks to regain control of her music. The new owner of the rights to her old albums became the music manager Scooter Braun.

The process of re-recording began in 2020, and to date, four albums have been released.

Those were the days, weren't they? Now, let's listen to this new version.
