Ryan Adams Made A Rootsy Cover Of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” On Its One-Year Anniversary

Ryan Adams has been consistently sharing previews of his 1989 cover album since he announced the project earlier this month, and the latest track he’s previewed for us is a rootsy version of “Shake It Off,” a far departure from the pop bombast of the original. Bright Eyes affiliate and composer Nate Walcott played piano and helped to arrange this one, which ended up being mixed on the one-year anniversary of the release of “Shake It Off” and the beginning of the whole 1989 rollout. (It’s been so long!) Check out the preview below.

Oh man @natewalcott on a piano is a musical dream cruise. Woah #1989 Blank Space vibes
