Ryan Adams is making good on his promise to cover all of Taylor Swift’s 1989. Wednesday night he posted clips from his latest attempt at giving the album a “Smiths style” makeover, and teased a 30-second video of “Wildest Dreams.”
Moody and retro, it’s a chilled out version of Swift’s crashing love song. “Can’t wait to add strings,” he wrote.
Adams has been chronicling his studio sessions spent recording versions of 1989 songs for the past few weeks, and has posted snippets of “Bad Blood,” “Blank Space,” “Style,” “All You Had To Do Was Stay,” “Out Of The Woods,” “Welcome To New York,” and “Shake It Off.” In case you had any doubts, he assured fans that he plans to include bonus tracks “Wonderland” and “New Romantics.”
