Ahead of its official release this week, Swifities are going wild after seeing some fans upload photos of their 1989 album on social media.

Now, the moment we've been waiting for has almost arrived; Taylor Swift's highly-anticipated version of her 1989 album is set to be released on Friday (October 27), but some fans have had an early look at the album after they arrived early on delivery.

Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, multiple fan accounts have uploaded pictures of the prized possession, showing off the new cover as well as the tracklist.

Have a look at the post below:

"Fans are starting to receive the #1989TaylorsVersion CDs!" wrote a fan account who goes by the name TayDua Nation, alongside two snapshots taken from a TikTok video showing off the album cover originally posted by a user called Andrew.

While a lot of fans expected to see the baby blue cover, some were shocked to see the beige, beach version of the album which shows Swift lying on the sand wearing a stripy jumper and white shorts.

Naturally, fans were excited over the news, taking to the comments to express their opinions.

"Really love how the cd turned up though like the design its really vibrant," wrote one user.

"Wait it looks so pretty in person," added another.

A third also stated that the CD was so "beautiful."

However, others were more concerned about the potential of the tracks leaking, which is a pet peeve for a lot of artists who have worked hard on their content.

"They need to make it where these things are only shipped out to stores and etc after the album releases because..." wrote this user, while another added: "I hope the song doesn't leaked or..." alongside an edited photo of Swift holding a gun.

A third chimed in saying: "Please just wait until friday for God's sake."

Another even name-dropped Target, who was allegedly responsible for the leak.

"@Target I think you're about to be in trouble," they commented.

Target has previously been under fire for leaking the old version of Swift's 1989 back in 2014, where fans ended up getting early access to a bunch of songs from the album thanks to hackers.

Speaking of the incident on a British talk show hosted by Alan Carr, the Grammy-award-winning artist told the interviewer that she doesn't even "want to think about" the concept.

"I don't even want to think about it," she said at the time. "I don't trust technology. I don't want to talk about leaks. It freaks me out. I will have a meltdown on the show."

And lo and behold, that very evening, the album was leaked.

As per a report by Yahoo! who cited New York Magazine, there is speculation that the leak may have stemmed from Target, because hackers got the 19 songs specially crafted for the Target edition.

Despite getting their hands on an early version of Taylor's version of the renowned album, it seems as though there aren't any leaks as of yet as Friday quickly approaches.

According to the official track list for the collection, fans are excited see a range of new tunes including 'Slut!,' 'Say Don’t Go,' 'Now That We Don’t Talk,' “Suburban Legends,” and 'Is It Over Now?' alongside the original ones which include 'Bad Blood' and a personal favorite, 'Wildest Dreams.'

1989 (Taylor's Version) will be available to stream on October 27.
