Less than a year after Lover came out in August 2019, Taylor Swift returns to the woods and plants herself back in her singer-songwriter roots. But which song sounds like a natural hit among the Swifties?
Bon Iver's Justin Vernon is the sole featured artist on "exile," his low growling voice recorded in Fall Creek, Wis. bemoaning a betrayed love. Swift stands in as the lover, her honeyed yet crisp vocals recorded in Los Angeles, Calif. gives the track a bittersweet contrast.
The National's Aaron Dessner played an integral part in the album process, plucking an "invisible string" for what Billboard ranked as the best song on her project, a serendipitous ode to letting the simpler things of life make us happy and nothing more.
