When the Karma hitmaker dropped the re-recorded album, she wrote on Instagram, ‘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.’

She continued, ‘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. Taylor.’

Basically, as she sings on the song Mastermind from her 2022 album Midnights, ‘It was all by design. Cause I’m a mastermind.’
