Taylor Swift’s young lover shared their romantic Folklore songwriting story

They collaborated with Alwyn under the guise of William Bowery to write a number of songs that were included on Swift’s albums Folklore and Evermore, both of which were released in 2020.

It came as a bit of a sᴜrprise to find out that Alwyn had contributed to the albums, given that he is primarily recognized for his acting abilities; however, there is a great deal more to the story. Alwyn, who is currently starring in the Hulu series Conversations with Friends, has recently disclosed information about his songwriting abilities, which were previously kept a secret. It has come to light that none of it was planned from the beginning.

Alwyn discussed his musical background in an interview that took place on May 9 with Vulture. The famous musician rеvеalеd that, in addition to having spent his childhood playing the piano, he also played the guitar in a “terrible school band called Anger Management.” Swift caught Alwyn one day singing and “messing around” on the piano despite the fаct that he went on to pursue acting as a career. It appears that Alwyn still enjoys playing the piano at home, despite the fаct that he went on to pursue acting as a career.

He explained his actions to Vulture by stating that “it was completely off the cuff, an аccident.” “She asked, ‘Can we try our best to take a seat and see this through with each other?'” And so we did. It was so simple that some people even made sourdough out of it.

The piano session eventually resulted in the Һit track “Exile” by Taylor Swift and Bon Iver from her album Folklore. According to Vulture, Alwyn was the one who came up with the first verse of the song before Swift added her lyrics. Alwyn responded, “Who doesn’t walk around the house singing?” in response to the question of how he came up with his lyrics without any prior planning.

It would appear that the process of writing the song “Betty” was comparable. Alwyn admitted, “I’d probably had a drink and was just stumbling around the house,” which was his explanation for his behavior. “That night, we were having trouble deciding which movie to watch, so she asked me if I wanted to try to finish writing the song that I had been singing earlier in the day. After that, we decided to get a guitar and play it.”

Swift didn’t confirm the theory that Alwyn used the alias William Bowery until November 2020, when she did so in her documentary for Disney+ called folklore: the long pond studio sessions. This is despite the fаct that some fans immediately believed that Alwyn used the alias William Bowery.

Swift, a character in the movie, is heard saying, “There’s been a lot of discussion about William Bowery and his identity because it’s not a rеal person.” “As everyone is aware, William Bowery is Joe.”

After Folklore was made available to the public in July of 2020, Taylor Swift followed it up with the release of Evermore in December. Additionally, Alwyn contributed to the writing of three songs that were included on the album. William Bowery is a reference to both a street in Manhattan and Alwyn’s great-grandfather, who was a music composer. In an interview with Vulture, Alwyn explained his choice of William Bowery as a pseudonym, saying that it was a reference to both of these things.

Alwyn has also recently discussed his work on Taylor Swift’s albums, specifically the song “Exile,” in an interview with GQ. Working together with Bon Iver, aka Justin Vernon, was something he referred to as “a perk of lockdown.” Even more intriguing, Alwyn hinted that there may be a version of “Exile” featuring his vocals hidden away in Swift’s legendary vault. He uttered those words to Jesus, “Jesus, there’s probably a voice note somewhere that should be burned.”

It looks as though this will be the final chapter for William Bowery. According to GQ, Alwyn has no intention of continuing his songwriting career. This information, of course, makes me want to stream “Exile” even more than I already did.

How soon until Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) is announced?

Swifties are sure to agree that Taylor Swift knows how to whip them up into a frenzy. At the 2022 American Music Awards, the singer turned in a stellar performance, earning multiple nominations and the award for Favorite Pop Album for her 2021 studio album titled Red (Taylor’s Version). Swift took the theme of her Midnights Һit, “Bejeweled,” very seriously with her shimmering outfit; however, many Swifties appear to believe that her fashionable appearance extends beyond its intricate detailing.

Fans are under the impression that her breathtaking ensemble provides hints that new music is on the way. In particular, a possible re-recording of her album from 2010, which was titled Speak Now. Let’s break this theory down, shall we?

At the awards show, the singer spruced up her normally wavy blonde tresses by curling them into a bountiful mane and wearing her signature bold red lip. Sword earrings completed her look. IYDK, but Taylor Swift’s signature long hairstyle was a mainstay in her early career, particularly during the time of her album Speak Now. It has been some time since the singer has been seen wearing her curls, so it should come as no sᴜrprise that fans have connected her most recent look to that earlier, more nostalgic era.

This hypothesis does not appear to be overly implausible when considering the fаct that Taylor Swift is widely regarded as the unofficial queen of Easter eggs. It’s important to point out that this isn’t the first time in recent memory that the singer has given fans major Speak Now vibes, so don’t get too excited just yet. Fans have noticed that at the beginning of her Һit song “Bejeweled,” Taylor Swift includes a violin solo that is taken from the instrumental version of her song “Enchanted,” which can be found on her most recent album Speak Now.

Only Taylor Swift is capable of sending her fans into a speculative haze with even the most insignificant of her fashion choices. However, based on these relatively unimportant clues, Swifties appear to be onto something.
