Taylor Swift may have gained a new rocker fan. Musician Ryan Adams recorded several covers of songs from her "1989" album, and Swift is excited about it.
Adams and his band, the Smiths, had a jam party Wednesday as they Smith-ified all of the songs in Swift’s "1989," People reported. The musician and producer even shared short clips and snaps of their recording sessions on social media, which eventually reached the “Bad Blood” singer.
Swift learned of it through a tweet made by Rolling Stone Indonesia’s Hasief Ardiasyah, who wrote, “Apparently @TheRyanAdams is recording cover versions of every song on @taylorswift13's 1989. Give me something good!” Ardiasyah also attached a link to Adams' Instagram account, which shared his 1989 album cover jam session.
The “Blank Space” crooner responded, "Is this true??????? I WILL PASS OUT." And the 40-year-old rocker was kind enough to confirm the news, writing in Twitter, "Yes. Just finished Style. Badass tunes, Taylor," Adams replied. "We're sandblasting them and they're holding steady."
Swift was excited with Adams’ cover project, although she still tried her best to stay calm, as evidenced by her tweet: "Cool I'm not gonna be able to sleep tonight or ever again and I'm going to celebrate today every year as a holiday. I'M CALM." To which he rocker replied, "Ok, so I shouldn't share this clip then…" Adams wrote, and shared a short clip of the “saddest version” of "Welcome to New York" in Twitter.
This is not the first time that Swift has been starstruck, stated Us Weekly. During a 2009 appearance on the “Ellen” show, she freaked out when DeGeneres surprised her with her then-celebrity crush, Justin Timberlake. In February, she also posted an Instagram pic of two of her favorite TV stars, Mariska Hargitay and Ellen Pompeo. Swift captioned the snap, “Framing this.” The “Style” singer even gushed about Bruce Springsteen and Madonna.
Meanwhile, it’s unclear whether Adams will release an official cover album featuring Swift’s songs.
