Ryan Adams plans to cover Taylor Swift‘s 1989 album in full, which he revealed last night via Twitter. The singer also shared a clip of his “Welcome to New York” cover via Instagram, which you can watch below. In response, a very, very excited Swift stated via Twitter that she would “pass out,” then added, “not gonna be able to sleep tonight or ever again and I’m going to celebrate today every year as a holiday.” Adams, for his part, told her that he’d just “sandblasted ‘Style'” and that her tunes are “badass.” See their interaction below.
