Earlier this year Taylor Swift broke music industry boundaries by remaking and re-releasing her first album, Fearless (Taylor’s Version). The record was a smash hit, reaching the top of the Billboard 200 charts, so a remake of another of the star’s biggest albums, 1989, is a no-brainer. And chances look good that it will hit store shelves this year.
Leading online sportsbook MyBookie has released new odds on when Taylor will drop her next album remake.
First, they posit that a renewal of 1989 is the most likely.
They place 1989 (Taylor’s Version) at -120, over other albums such as Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), Red (Taylor’s Version) and Taylor Swift (Taylor’s Version); each of which have +175, +250 and +300 respectively.
These odds suggest 1989 is just around the corner – and MyBookie thinks July could be the month for fans of the album.
The online bookmaker went on to provide odds on the release date for 1989 (Taylor’s Version).
They have split the release into two options: Before July 4, 2021, and after July 4, 2021.
July 4 is a Sunday, just a few days after the day Taylor notoriously likes to announce new music – Thursdays.
Before July 4 currently has the edge with odds on -140, while after July 4 has +100.

After this, 1989 received a 9x platinum certification from selling more than 10 million units worldwide.
Fans of the album have recently begun speculating the record will be coming out soon following the release of Taylor’s latest line of merchandise.
The merch includes shirts, jumpers, cups and caps that say: Taylor Swift Est 1989.
On top of this, the line of merchandise is titled Just A Summer Thing.
This line is a lyric from one of Taylor’s newest songs, Betty.
The following line is: “I’m only 17, I don’t know anything.”
Because of this, fans believe the new album will be released on July 17.
