It’s not official, and she won’t promote it, but this acoustic version of Taylor Swift’s latest 1989 single “New Romantics” is so pleasant.
Swift threw us a bone when she sent “New Romantics” to radio, but the opportunity was amiss when she opted for a music video using pre-recorded tour footage from her Apple Music special and then didn’t promote it like the rest of her music, and… blah. In recent months, she’s appeared at a few award shows (including one where she accepts the Taylor Swift award) and starred in several commercials for the music giant, but has remained quiet on the music front.
Boyfriend Calvin Harris recently said she has no plans to release an album any time soon, so this acoustic version of “New Romantics,” which was uploaded to the Internet back in March but only now just making the rounds, is worth a listen. It won’t suffice for new music from the pop star, but it’s something.
