Ryan Adams 1989 Cover

Ryan Adams has unveiled his cover version of the Taylor Swift mega-hit ‘Bad Blood’, a further taster of his upcoming 1989 covers album.

The singer-songwriter gives the original, aggressive pop hit an all-American, alt-rock overhaul, but the hooks and chorus that propelled the song to the top of the charts remain intact.

Listen to the song via Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show:

Swift has declared herself a big fan of Adams, saying “this is surreal and dreamlike”:

Adams’ 1989 album is released on September 21.
