2016 Grammy Award winner – Album Of The Year! Plus Best Pop Vocal Album
Nine new songs, featuring the hit single "Shake It Off"
"…the LP could have been an overstuffed Frankenstein of battling ideas. But instead it's Swift's best work — a sophisticated pop tour de force … an album that finds Swift meeting Katy and Miley and Pink on their home turf and staring them down." — Billboard, October 2014
"…it's the expertly crafted sound of 1989 that marks her most impressive slight of hand yet — shifting the focus away from her past and onto her music, which is as smart and confident as it's ever been. Who are these songs about? When they sound this good, who cares?" — Time, October 2014
