Today Ryan Adams released a new album called “1989.” Sound familiar? It’s because the whole thing is a new version of Taylor Swift’s 2014 pop masterpiece “1989” –– every single song.

Adams is not the first person anyone would think of to cover Swift’s bright, explosive melodies –– his typical rock and alternative sound is pretty different than the country-turned-pop star’s music. But he did it anyway, and Twitter reacted accordingly.

Taylor herself had a countdown to the release of Adams’ “1989,” featuring her cat.

And once it was released, even her fans liked the album.

There were callbacks to the actual 1980s.

And a few Bruce Springsteen comparisons.

One person had a realization.

Another commented on the different ways music can bring people together.

Everyone seemed to be in agreement that covering a whole album was a good idea.

Well done, Ryan Adams.
