Spotify and Apple Music down after Taylor Swift’s 1989 rerecord release

A third commented: “SCREAMS because @AppleMusic has let me down by not letting me listening to #1989TaylorsVersion midnight.” Another added: “Apple Music is finally letting me down … babes I’m 34 and I stayed up until midnight on a work night, please just let me listen to 1989.”

Taylor shared three new photos on social media to mark the release alongside a handwritten message to fans. She wrote: “I was born in 1989, reinvented for the first time in 2014, and a part of me was reclaimed in 2023 with the re-release of this album I love so dearly. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine the magic you would sprinkle on my life for so long. This moment is a reflection of the woods we’ve wandered through and all this love between us still glowing in the darkest dark. I present to you, with gratitude and wild wonder, my version of 1989. It’s been waiting for you.”

The message contains several references to songs on the album, including the final line which is a famous line from the opening track Welcome to New York.

These vault tracks include Slut!, Say Don’t Go, Now That We Don’t Talk, Suburban Legends, and Is It Over Now?.
