Naturally, everyone wondered if Adams really is recording an entire Swift cover album. He assured fans it was real by posting more photos from the session, like this one featuring lyrics from Swift's "Blank Space."

Fans were super excited.

I guess @TheRyanAdams wasn't kidding about a song for song remake of 1989? Please let this see the light of day https://t.co/gd3eEcXY9j

And said they couldn't wait to hear his covers.

@TheRyanAdams FFUUUCCKKK... Are you actually doing it?!

But one fan was REALLY stoked — Swift herself. She asked Adams on Twitter if the rumor was true after seeing tweets about it, writing, "I WILL PASS OUT."

Apparently @TheRyanAdams is recording cover versions of every song on @taylorswift13's 1989. Give me something good! https://t.co/IUwwFd6PP7

She got a immediate response from Adams saying it was true, and complimenting her on her "badass tunes."

Yes. Just finished Style. Badass tunes, Taylor. : ) We're sandblasting them and they're holding steady https://t.co/UaCOrnoVt7

She felt the way we all do. "Cool I'm not gonna be able to sleep tonight or ever again and I'm going to celebrate today every year as a holiday. I'M CALM."

@TheRyanAdams Cool I'm not gonna be able to sleep tonight or ever again and I'm going to celebrate today every year as a holiday. I'M CALM

Adams even shared a clip of his version of "Welcome to New York," and it's amazing.
