Whether country singer or pop star, Taylor Swift has always been first and foremost a songwriter, and now she’s been given quite a tribute from one of her elders. Ryan Adams’ Taylor Swift cover album, his complete, track-by-track take on 1989, was released ahead of schedule just before midnight on Sunday night.

Whether you’re an Adams fan or just a Taylor Swift fan who’s curious how her songs hold up in more Red­-style country and rock arrangements—Adams has said that he wanted the whole thing to sound like Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska—you can stream the full thing below or on Apple Music and iTunes.

As Stereogum notes, “Clean” doesn’t seem to be up on Vevo yet, but it’s up on iTunes and Apple Music, and Adams promises that a physical release of the album will be available soon.

Update, Sept. 24, 2015: “Clean” is now up on YouTube, below.
