Fresh from the news that she’ll be bringing Paramore out as special guests on the UK and European leg of her Eras Tour next year, Taylor Swift has unveiled a new collab with Hayley Williams, as well as another new one with Fall Out Boy.
Both tracks appear on new album Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), a re-recording of the pop megastar’s 2010 album Speak Now. Announcing the collabs with Hayley and FOB, Taylor explained last month: “Since Speak Now was all about my songwriting, I decided to go to the artists who I feel influenced me most powerfully as a lyricist at that time and ask them to sing on the album. They’re so cool and generous for agreeing to support my version of Speak Now.”
Both collabs are for songs that were previously ‘from the vault’, with Hayley teaming up with her longtime pal Taylor on Castles Crumbling, and Fall Out Boy – who once performed a 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show with Taylor – on the song Electric Touch.
