Taylor Swift brings us another remix of one of her fan favorites “This Love” for the re-release of the music album ‘1989’ as part of the Taylor’s Version line. The original version received mixed reviews but would go on to be certified Platinum.
The original version was a slow synth-pop song that had elements of being a ballad. This version expands on its status as a ballad and while it retains its slow melody, it does have a unique quality to it. A few folks have said it is a “rock” sound, but personally, I think it is too slow for that genre. This is not a criticism, but it felt more like contemporary pop than rock, but that is my opinion. That being said, I did enjoy it and found it to be another example of how creative Taylor Swift is when she is given the right tools.
Check out the lyric video below:
This version of the song was teased in the trailer for Amazon Studios’ ‘The Summer I Turned Pretty.’
“Thank you (Jenny Han) for debuting my version of This Love in the trailer for (The Summer I Turned Pretty),” Swift wrote on Instagram. “I’ve always been so proud of this song and I’m very 🥺🥺🥺 about this turn of events – This Love (Taylor’s Version) comes out tonight at (midnight)!”
“This Love (My version!) is out & I’m currently reliving the 1989 tour in my head and spiraling, it’s fine,” she wrote in another post.
