American singer-songwriter Ryan Adams has revealed that he's covering Taylor Swift's hit album 1989 in full, as if it were played by the Smiths.
Adam's revealed that he'll be reinterpreting Taylor's work via social media, with picture's of the recording process, as well as lyrics sheets for a swag of her songs. Adam's captioned one of his images "Guaranteed saddest version of 'Welcome to New York' ever of your tears back."
Swift responded to the revalations on social media with excitement, stating that "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."
Essentially, one of the world's most popular young female artist's most prominent release is set to be covered by a middle-aged white American male in a style inspired by one of the most seminal British acts of all time. It's a culturally confusing situation that's caused first year Social Studies student's heads to explode the world over*.
It's not the first time that Adam's has covered the American classics. His latest world tour incorporated covers of Foo Fighter's 'Times Like These' and Bryan Adam's classic 'Summer of 69.'
