On September 21, 2015, Ryan Adams will release an album of his interpretations of songs from Taylor Swift's 1989 album. Today, Zane Lowe shared one of the tracks on his Apple Beats 1 radio show. Listen to Adams' version of "Bad Blood" above, via YouTube.
Adams takes the beat-heavy pop tune and gives it a warm, alt-country feel. Acoustic guitar strumming, bright piano notes, and Ryan's gentle vocals show how a great musician can put a twist to a fun song and help listeners discover it in a different light. Compare this to Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" music video featuring Kendrick Lamar.
Taylor Swift commented on her Twitter page about Ryan Adams playing her songs:
Ryan's music helped shape my songwriting. This is surreal and dreamlike.
So far, Ryan Adams' 1989 is only scheduled to be released in a digital format, but Vinyl and CD versions may become available. On the release date, September 21, Adams will be interviewed by Zane Lowe on Beats Radio at 9 AM PT, and a "special guest" will be calling in. Do you think it will be T. Swift?
