Ryan Adams - 1989 2LP

Blue Note

Inspired by the music of the Smiths and Bruce Springsteen, Adams explained the unique project's emotional resonance to Zane Lowe: "You could kind of hear people going, ‘Is this [1989] a dance record? Is this a retro '80s record' But I was hearing all the emotional content here and becoming curious about it."

Swift on Adams' take to Lowe, "The album is absolutely gorgeous and you can tell it was something well thought-out and conceptualized, not just thrown together....What struck me immediately is that they're not just cover songs, they're re-imaginings of my songs. He was in a different place emotionally than where I was when I wrote them. There's this beautiful aching sadness in this album that doesn't exist on the original."
