Once upon a time, there was a Taylor Swift who released a 1989 album. With hits such as Welcome to New York and Blank Space, singer-songwriter Ryan Adams was inspired to cover said 1989 album, which then sparked Father John Misty to cover Ryan Adams cover in the style of the Velvet Underground, which then sparked these writers to cover the 1989 album again, but with short stories. Swifts 1989 album has inspired post-apocalyptic tales (OUT OF THE WOODS, BAD BLOOD), bildungsroman fairy tales (HOW YOU GET THE GIRL, CLEAN), and Murakami-esque prose labyrinths (STYLE, THIS LOVE).
