1989 is the fifth studio album by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, released on October 27, 2014 through Big Machine Records. Swift started songwriting for the album in mid-2013, when she was touring in support of her fourth studio release Red (2012). Contemporary critics noted Red's emerging departure from Swift's previously characteristic country styles and incorporation of straightforward pop hooks, a result of Swift's collaborations with pop producers Max Martin and Shellback
1989 is the fifth studio album of pop superstar Taylor Swift. It was released on October 27th, 2014 and it’s her first completely pop album. It debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 1,287,000 copies in its first week. It was a record week for her, and even more impressive considering the current slow failure of album sales.

Taylor Swift's '80s-inspired fifth studio effort is her first "official pop album," with heavyweights like Max Martin, Shellback, Ryan Tedder and Jack Antonoff helping construct a sleeker, glitzier sound. Shake It Off" mimics "Hey Ya," OutKast's own pledge of allegiance to populism, and echoes of Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, and Belinda Carlisle can be heard throughout. 1989 is a juggernaut, as brash and brilliant as the lights of Times Square.
First of all, 1989 is Taylor Swift’s first documented pop album. This album includes the following songs: -Welcome To New York: it is the perfect song to start the album with. Right from the start you can tell that it is a pop song and it sets the tone of 1989. Taylor sings about how moving to the magical and eclectic city of New York changed her and her perspective.
In 1989, Taylor Swift was born. New Kids on the Block had their breakout year, Nirvana and Garth Brooks both released debut albums ('Bleach' and the self-titled 'Garth Brooks'), Young MC busted a move, Milli Vanilli were caught lip-synching and Disney's 'The Little Mermaid' hit theaters. Maybe none of this directly influenced Taylor Swift's new album, '1989,' but it does set the scene
When she announced 1989 a few months prior to its October 2014 release, Taylor Swift called her sixth record her first "documented, official" pop album, explicitly severing herself from her country roots. Truth be told, Swift already made the leap from country to pop with 2012's Red, a nominally country LP distinguished by three songs co-written and produced by Max Martin and Shellback, a team that returns for twice that number on 1989 (Martin has one additional non-Shellback co-write with Swift)
