In a press release shared on Wednesday, iHeartMedia confirmed radio stations across the country will replace all of "Taylor's previous albums with the 'Taylor's Version' of each of them as Taylor releases each project, and will play only 'Taylor's Version' of her songs on the air."
"Whenever Taylor re-records a new track, we immediately replace the old versions. Our stations will always deliver songs that artists are eager to share and fans want to hear," said Tom Poleman, Chief Programming Officer for iHeartMedia. "Listeners have made it known that they cannot wait to hear ‘Taylor’s Version’ of each track. We are thrilled to provide a platform to share those with them, as well as the stories behind the songs from Taylor herself."
