During their dating phase, Taylor and Matty were often seen together, particularly leaving Electric Lady Studios in New York City, where Taylor has been working on music.
Speculations were swirling that Matty Healy and his band, The 1975, might be featured on one of the vault tracks for '1989 (Taylor’s Version).'
'1989 (Taylor’s Version)' is scheduled for release in October and is part of Taylor Swift's project to re-record her albums.
The album includes re-imagined versions of songs from her original '1989' album, which was released in 2014.
Taylor Swift's rep swiftly debunked the rumor, clarifying to Billboard that neither Matty Healy nor The 1975 are involved in this album.
Fans of both artists were curious about the potential collaboration, but the truth is that it won't be happening.
This marks another chapter in Taylor Swift's journey to regain control of her music catalog by re-recording her previous works.
The process of re-recording allows Taylor to own and control her master recordings, a significant move in the music industry.
Taylor Swift's ability to assert her creative and financial independence has been a central theme in her career.
Despite the rumors, Taylor Swift's fans can still look forward to '1989 (Taylor’s Version)' with excitement, knowing it will feature her unique touch and artistry.
