Taylor Swift has been working on new versions of old songs, and now we know which one is in the works first! As Entertainment Tonight reports, Swift gave fans a little preview of one of her re-recorded tracks on Wednesday, dropping it in an unconventional way!
Swift's song appears in fun dating ad penned by Ryan Reynolds
Swift didn't release a teaser herself, but instead chose to premiere the newly recorded version of one of her most popular songs through a new scripted commercial from Ryan Reynolds! The Deadpool actor's ad for the dating website Match.com is about a minute and a half long, and sees a woman named "2020" enjoying a whirlwind romance with "Satan."
The singer shared the commercial on Twitter, confirming fans' speculation that the rendition of "Love Story" used as background music was recent. "OK, so while my new re-records are NOT done," she tweeted, "my friend @vancityreynolds asked me if he could use a snippet of one for a LOLsome commercial he wrote so... Here's a sneak peek of 'Love Story'! Working hard to get the music to you soon!!"
Swift and Reynolds have been close friends for some time
Swift and Reynolds may seem like an odd duo, but the pair have in fact become good friends over the years. Swift is also close with Reynolds' wife, Blake Lively, and even confirmed that she used all three of the couple's daughters' names in one of her new songs, "betty"!
On November 2, Swift officially became able to re-record most of her old albums— something she previously wasn't allowed to do because of her recording contract. Last month also saw the singer release a Disney+ concert documentary focused on her critically acclaimed album folklore, for which she received 6 GRAMMY nominations!
