Ryan Adams gave his 1989 covers their late-night debut on Thursday night, and performed “Bad Blood,” “Blank Space,” and “Style” on The Daily Show. Adams was new host Trevor Noah’s first musical guest and he also sat down for an interview to talk about the collection, which is made up entirely of covers from Taylor Swift’s 2014 album.
“What was interesting to me is that a lot of people thought you recorded this album ironically, and yet, you did not,” Noah said. Adams responded, “Yes.”
