The year of Taylor Swift may truly never end at this rate. The musical phenom and money-making-machine will be releasing ‘1989 (Taylor’s Version)’ this October to much fanfare.

This will be the third album release by Taylor Swift in just over a year. She released an original album, ‘Midnights’ last October, and released ‘Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)’ in early July.

The move was announced at the final concert of the first leg of her blockbuster “Eras Tour” at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California at around 2AM on the East Coast and 11PM local time.

And, soon after, the Pennsylvania native’s official Twitter account confirmed the news.

Swift is re-releasing her first seven studio albums due to a dispute over her master records with music industry giant Scooter Braun, who purchased the masters to those albums.

1989 is arguably Taylor Swift’s, who has been compared by many, including Billy Joel, to The Beatles, most commercially successful album to date. The 2014 album was 9x platinum, put “Bad Blood”, “Shake It Off”, and “Blank Space” at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, and landed three other singles in the top 20. It was named the Album of the Year at the 2016 Grammy Awards, the most prestigious award in all of music. And, it spawned a World Tour that grossed $250 million.

Swift’s ‘Eras Tour’, which played six shows in Los Angeles before embarking on international shows prior to returning stateside to finish the tour next Fall, is set to smash records with this tour. According to Newsweek, the tour is expected to gross an astounding $1.3 billion. That’s $400 million more than the highest-grossing tour of all-time, Elton John’s 330-show “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour that just wrapped up in Stockholm last month.
