Listen To Ryan Adam’s Cover Of Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’

Most fans were pretty surprised when singer/songwriter Ryan Adams announced he was planning on releasing a 1989 cover album, but naysayers quickly quieted down after Adams began posting his moody re-imagining of Taylor Swift’s 2014 album on Instagram.

The BBC’s Zane Lowe premiered Adam’s first track, Bad Blood, today on his Beats 1 Radio show ahead of its release tonight on iTunes (if you pre-order the entire album).

The radio host also promised an exclusive interview with Adams this Monday, which will also include a phone call from a special guest. It’s Taylor, right? Can we just agree it’s T Swift on the line?

The first track from the cover album shows off the departure Adams is taking from the original version, bringing pop star Swift back to her country roots. We’re looking forward to more folky, guitar driven interpretations from the singer.

Ryan Adams cover album of 1989 will be available on September 21. The new disc made our list of the 15 must-hear albums still to come in 2015. Check out what other records made the cut here!
