Indie rock's favorite Heartbreaker, Ryan Adams, is taking on pop's favorite love song queen, Taylor Swift. Late last night, Adams announced via Instagram and Twitter that he is currently recording a full cover album of Swift's 1989, to which Swift replied, at 4:49 a.m. EST, that she would "pass out"—we're guessing from excitement, and not because she's tired from being up so late.
Ryan confirmed that he is indeed not flubbing. Taylor Swift, as you can see, is beyond stoked about this news and promises to celebrate August 6 as a holiday every year:
@TheRyanAdams Cool 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— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) August 6, 2015
He also posted a preview clip of his "Welcome to New York" cover and it sounds actually kind of awesome (not sure why he's wearing a helmet but whatever works for his creative process I guess). Listen below, and check out some of his other Taylor Swift studio sesh pics.
