In true Taylor Swift fashion, “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” also features several previously unreleased “Vault” songs.

The latest release includes “Vault” tracks such as “Is It Over Now?,” “Now That We Don’t Talk,” “Say Don’t Go,” “Suburban Legends,” and “Slut!” This addition of “Vault” songs follows the pattern set by Swift’s previous “Versions” of her albums.
