Musical Units

Swift’s merchandise includes a cassette tape, vinyl, (digital) album, and CD that will cover the tracklist of the soon-to-be album of 1989 (TV).

The vinyls have two different looks, with a smiling, bright Swift and light blue hues coloring the vinyl. It contains 5 unreleased songs from “The Vault” and 21 songs in total. This special vinyl also reveals a foldable jacket with different artwork on both sides plus an album sleeve with secret photos for the consumer. Her 1989 (TV) CD contains the same 21 songs and 5 secret songs as the vinyl along with surprises to be unveiled. These said surprises consist of an exclusive disc with beautiful artwork, a lyric booklet with secret images of her, and a foldable-double sided poster. This poster has a full-sized photograph of the one and only Swift, and the other side has lyrics of her song “Welcome to New York.” Swift’s 1989 (TV) cassette is rather more simplistic than the other musical items, but it also has the unrevealed photos. This lovely cassette has a double-sided shell, with one side being pastel green and the other being light yellow. These color choices seem to bring out the cheeky, liveliness of 1989 (TV) itself.
