Taylor Swift Dropping Her Biggest Re-recorded Album Yet, “1989,” In October in 4 Different Versions


Taylor Swift has been on tour most of this year, selling out stadiums like crazy.

Still, she had time to finish the re-recorded version of her best selling “1989” album. It’s dropping on October 27th in four collectible versions.

This means its debut should be as big as “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)” which debuted a few weeks ago with over 700,000 copies sold– and now closing in one 1 million. Taylor’s fans buy all the versions available at once when she releases music. “1989” will be no exception.

Pre-ordering has already begun, with a clever marketing gimmick: the versions are “only available” from now through this weekend, or “until supplies last.” Supplies won’t last long, trust me.

It’s been Taylor’s year! So far this year, Taylor has sold 9 million records of some kind!
