Since Ryan Adams announced he'd be covering Taylor Swift's 1989 in its entirety -- and Swift totally fangirled over the idea -- he's been actively sharing snippets of the songs on social media. The singer-songwriter took on Swift's next single, "Wildest Dreams," Wednesday night (Aug. 12), also revealing a couple other details about the project.

Taylor Swift's '1989' to Be Covered in Its Entirety By Ryan Adams: Hear a Snippet

Perhaps one of the more fitting 1989 tunes for Adams' style, it sounds more like the original than the other clips he has shared, including "Shake It Off," "All You Had To Do Was Stay," and "Bad Blood." He mentioned in the caption for the clip that he "can't wait to add strings" to the track.

 

Just before teasing "Wildest Dreams," Adams unveiled a version of the 1989 cover with his face in place of Swift's, announcing that he's only four songs away from finishing the album.

Although no word has been given on when the full album will become available, he did reassure fans that the bonus tracks from 1989 ("Wonderland," "New Romantics," and "You Are In Love") will not be forgotten. "There's no way I would leave those out! : )" he tweeted. Judging by his use of smiley faces, he's fangirling over this project just as much as Swift.
