Adams recently covered Swift's '1989' album in full

Ryan Adams performed his cover of Taylor Swift‘s ‘Welcome To New York’ live on US TV’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night (October 19).

The performance aptly marked a week of Jimmy Kimmel Live broadcasting from New York, moving momentarily from its primary home of Los Angeles.

Watch the performance below. Adams previously performed songs from his ‘1989’ Swift covers album on The Daily Show.


Ryan Adams will release his version of ‘1989’ on vinyl in December.

Adams and Swift got together to talk ‘1989’, with Swift saying to a delighted Adams “what you did with my album was like actors changing emphasis.” Watch here.

The pair talked over their creative processes and influences in the interview, along with a few leftfield subjects like Swift’s love of Siri, as an aside to a GQ Magazine cover shoot.
