"Took our broken hearts, put them in a drawer" is what the Taylor Swift fandom is thinking (belting at the top of their lungs) right now. After a German store displayed 1989 a whole five days early (apparently the street date their is Oct. 24), some fans were able to snag physical copies, take photos of the official track list and post it on Twitter. As a result, the singer herself has confirmed the batch of songs, taking to her Instagram to make the reveal.
As Popdust originally reported, the 1989 track list had leaked late last week. Even though Swift blasted on Tumblr that it was fake, well, it turns she was just trying to hype up her own album...or distract us (probably that). With the official announcement, does that mean we will no longer get any more lyrical teasers? Shame.
New industry projections indicate Swift's forthcoming LP might shift as much as 800,000 to one million copies in its first week of release. That's up significantly from the first 750,000 gauge. Previously, Speak Now (2010) and Red (2012) both topped the one million mark, blazing records and setting trends along the way.
1989 officially hits retail next Tuesday, October 27.
