Taylor Swift has recently re-released her 1989 album, as Taylor's Version, where she brought back all of her songs with new twists and music. When fans were super excited for her Eras Tour, Taylor shocked fans with her 1989 (Taylor's Version).

1989 album with its songs

Back in 2014, when 1989 was released, it resonated deeply with fans' emotions. Many have experienced conflicting emotions when listening to those songs after Scooter Braun acquired the rights to Swift's first 6 albums with Big Machine Records. With songs like – "Style”, "Blank Space”, "Bad Blood”, and "Shake it Off”, the 1989 album became an integral part of the listeners' lives. When the re-recording was announced shortly after the release of Speak Now (Taylor's Version), fans were eager to reclaim ownership of their beloved album.

Diane Warren's reaction

Not only fans, but this time, songwriter Diane Warren also feels mesmerised with Taylor’s bringing back “Say Don't Go” song with her version. She shared that the song is like nostalgia for her, hence she was surprised that Taylor has brought back all the emotions after the long 9 years.

Recently in an exclusive interview with People, Diane shared, “I was surprised that that became a news story. I mean, what? That was really nice of her. But that shows, she's smart, she's smarter than everybody. That was really beautiful. Look, it was great that the song came out and everybody loves that song, everybody. It's like her fan's favourite song. And the fact that she used it now when she's bigger than anybody on the planet, it's like, thanks for taking me along for the ride, Taylor. It's awesome.”

Taylor's lovely way to show her gratitude towards Diane

Back in October, when Taylor first released “Say Don't Go”, she sent flowers to Dianne, showing her immense appreciation for the collaboration. Even though it has been almost a decade, it still holds a lot of emotions from fans as well as Taylor and Dianne.

1989 was co-produced by Taylor and Jack

While talking about “Say Don't Go”, Warren shared how Swift was very particular about the lyrics, and how perfectly she knows about her fans' emotions. The 1989 album was co-produced by Swift and Jack Antonoff, to whom she also expressed her immense gratitude after releasing her version.
