Unsurprisingly, Swift’s announcement generated massive buzz on social media. Her post quickly garnered over 11 million views and received more than 97,000 quotes. Fans, affectionately known as ‘Swifties’, flooded the comments section with exuberant reactions. One fan captured the sentiment well, expressing, “This is going to be amazing… Taylor, thank you so much for always giving us your best. We love you so much.”
Interestingly, the release date of the re-recorded 1989 album aligns with the original album’s launch day back in 2014, adding a nostalgic touch to the occasion. In the lead-up to the announcement, Swift had been dropping hints about the album by frequently donning various blue dresses during her performances. This playful strategy included a notable blue gown worn during her rendition of “Enchanted”. Additionally, Swift slyly alluded to the album in her “I Can See You” video from the re-recorded “Speak Now” album, which was unveiled on July 7th.
Swift has undertaken the ambitious project of re-recording her albums under the banner of Big Machine Records, the label she parted ways within 2018. The label’s former owner subsequently sold the company to Scooter Braun in 2019, a prominent figure in the music industry known for managing artists like Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, and J Balvin.
