Artiestinformatie

Geboortedatum   13-12-1989
Land   Verenigde Staten

Taylor Swift schrijft al op jonge leeftijd gedichten, boeken en liedjes. Als ze elf jaar oud is geeft ze verschillende platenmaatschappijen demo’s met haar liedjes. Ze ontvangt veel afwijzingen en ook aanbiedingen waar ze niet op in wil gaan. In 2006 verschijnt haar eerste single, Tim McGraw, waarna ook haar titelloze debuutalbum een feit is.

Eind 2008 verschijnt haar tweede complete album, Fearless. De verkoop overtreft alle verwachtingen en ze is de best verkopende vrouwelijke artiest met een album in het tijdsbestek van één week. In het vroege voorjaar van 2009 debuteert Swift ook in de Top 40 als Love Story de 13e plaats weet te bereiken.

Het derde album van de zangeres is in 2010 een feit, Speak Now. Ze schrijft het nummer Safe And Sound voor de soundtrack bij de film The Hunger Games en wordt daarvoor met een Grammy onderscheiding. Red verschijnt in 2012 en levert Swift twee noteringen in de Top 40: We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together en haar grootste hit, I Knew You Were Trouble. Daarna scoort ze met 22 en Everything Has Changed (met Ed Sheeran) nog twee noteringen in de Tipparade.

Twee jaar na Red verschijnt op 28 oktober 2014 haar vijfde studioalbum, 1989. Met Shake It Off, dat als voorloper verschijnt, scoort ze de Alarmschijf en haar grootste Top 40-hit. De zangeres besluit in november dat haar nummers niet langer via streaming beschikbaar zijn.

Na Blank Space wordt Style Alarmschijf en is de derde single van het album 1989. In juni geeft Swift een concert in Amsterdam en aan het eind van de maand komt Bad Blood in de Top 40 terecht. Tijdens de MTV Video Music Awards eind augustus is ze opnieuw de grote winnaar en tegelijkertijd verschijnt de video bij haar nieuwe single Wildest Dreams.
2015 is een succesvol jaar voor de zangeres - ze wint prijs naar prijs en weet op Instagram haar aantal volgers te verdrievoudigen tot bijna 60 miljoen. Daarmee heeft ze de meeste volgers op Instagram. Op 31 december 2015 gaat de video van Out Of The Woods in premiere.

In 2016 werkt Swift in stilte aan nieuw materiaal en is ze sporadisch op een podium te zien. Wel lanceert ze, in samenwerking met AT&T haar eigen tv-kanaal, Taylor Swift Now. Eind december maakt ze, samen met Zayn, het nummer I Don't Wanna Live Forever voor de film Fifth Shades Darker. Haar zesde studioalbum, Reputation, verschijnt op 10 november 2017 en drie weken na die release ook op de verschillende streamingplatformen. Look What You Made Me Do, dat eind augustus verschijnt, breekt verschillende records. Zo wordt het de track die in de eerste 24 uur het meest wordt aangeklikt via streaming (8 miljoen keer) en de video wordt in de eerste 24 uur het meest bekeken (43 miljoen keer). Met Look What You Made Me Do pakt ze voor de zevende keer de Alarmschijf bij Radio 538. Gorgeous wordt de volgende track van het album die wordt opgepakt.
Op 12 januari 2018 verschijnt de video bij End Game, de track die ze samen met Ed Sheeran en Future maakte.

In 2019 verschijnt er nieuwe muziek van Taylor Swift via Me! (met Brendon Urie) en You Need To Calm Down. In de clip bij die laatste track is ook Katy Perry te zien. De twee hebben na ruim vijf jaar hun ruzie bijgelegd. In augustus mislukt de titeltrack van haar album, Lover. In november doet ze een nieuwe poging met dat nummer, dan met de aanvullende vocalen van Shawn Mendes.

Folklore is het achtste studioalbum dat Swift onverwachts uitbrengt in juli 2020. Cardigian is de eerste single van de coillectie van 16 nummers. Ook haar volgende album, Evermore, komt in december 2020 uit de lucht vallen. Van dat album wordt Willow één van de populaire tracks.
Door de onenigheid met haar voormalig platenlabel Big Machine Records over de masterrechten van haar eerste zes albums begon Swift met een heropname van het album Fearless. Deze kwam in april 2021 uit onder de naam Fearless (Taylor's Version). Dit deed ze ook met het album Red dat op 12 november verscheen onder de naam Red (Taylor’s Version). Ze bracht vlak daarna een korte film uit genaamd All Too Well, dat geïnspireerd werd door de tien-minutenversie van het haar single All Too Well. Swift heeft de film zelf geschreven en geregisseerd. Zelf is zij heel kort te zien in de film naast de acteurs Dylan O’Brien en Sadie Sink. Een dag later dropt ze de videoclip van de single I Bet You Think About Me. Ze wist hier haar beste vriendin Blake Lively voor te strikken als regisseur.


Songtekst

ALL TOO WELL (TAYLOR'S VERSION)

I walked through the door with you
The air was cold
But somethin' 'bout it
Felt like home somehow and I
Left my scarf there
At your sister's house
And you've still got it
In your drawer even now

Oh, your sweet disposition
And my wide eyed gaze
We're singing in the car
Getting lost upstate
Autumn leaves falling down like
Pieces into place
And I can picture it
After all these days

And I know it's long gone and
That magic's not here no more
And I might be okay
But I'm not fine at all

Cause there we are again
On that little town street
You almost ran the red
Cause you were looking over at me
Wind in my hair
I was there
I remember it
All too well

Photo album on the counter
Your cheeks were turning red
You used to be a little kid with glasses
In a twin-sized bed
And your mother's telling stories 'bout you
On the tee ball team
You taught me 'bout your past
Thinkin' your future was me

And I know it's long gone and
There was nothing else I could do
And I forget about you long enough
To forget why I needed to

Cause there we are again
In the middle of the night
We're dancin' 'round the kitchen
In the refrigerator light
Down the stairs
I was there
I remember it
All too well, yeah

And maybe we got lost in translation
Maybe I asked for too much
But maybe this thing was a masterpiece
Till you tore it all up
Running scared
I was there
I remember it
All too well

And you call me up again
Just to break me like a promise
So casually cruel
In the name of being honest
I'm a crumpled up
Piece of paper lying here
Cause I remember it
All, all, all
Too well

Time won't fly
It's like I'm paralyzed by it
I'd like to be my old self again
But I'm still trying to find it
After plaid shirt days
And nights when you made me your own
Now you mail back my things
And I walk home alone

But you keep my old scarf
From that very first week
Cause it reminds you of innocence
And it smells like me
You can't get
Rid of it
Cause you remember it
All too well, yeah

Cause there we are again
When I loved you so
Back before you lost
The one real thing you've ever known
It was rare
I was there
I remember it
All too well

Wind in my hair
You were there
You remember it all
Down the stairs
You were there
You remember it all
It was rare
I was there
I remember it
All too well

ALL TOO WELL (10 MINUTE VERSION) (TAYLOR'S VERSION) (FROM THE VAULT):

I walked through the door with you
The air was cold
But somethin' 'bout it
Felt like home somehow and I
Left my scarf there
At your sister's house
And you've still got it
In your drawer even now

Oh, your sweet disposition
And my wide eyed gaze
We're singing in the car
Getting lost upstate
Autumn leaves falling down like
Pieces into place
And I can picture it
After all these days

And I know it's long gone and
That magic's not here no more
And I might be okay
But I'm not fine at all

Cause there we are again
On that little town street
You almost ran the red
Cause you were looking over at me
Wind in my hair
I was there
I remember it
All too well

Photo album on the counter
Your cheeks were turning red
You used to be a little kid with glasses
In a twin-sized bed
And your mother's telling stories 'bout you
On the tee ball team
You taught me 'bout your past
Thinkin' your future was me

And you were tossing me the car keys
Fuck the patriarchy
Keychain on the ground
We were always skipping town
And I was thinking on the drive down
Any time now
He's gonna say it's love
You never called it what it was

Til we were dead and gone and buried
Check the pulse and come back
Swearing it's the same
After three months in the grave
And then you wondered where it went to
As I reached for you
But all I felt was shame
And you held my lifeless frame

And I know it's long gone and
There was nothing else I could do
And I forget about you long enough
To forget why I needed to

Cause there we are again
In the middle of the night
We're dancin' 'round the kitchen
In the refrigerator light
Down the stairs
I was there
I remember it
All too well

And there we are again
When nobody had to know
You kept me like a secret
But I kept you like an oath
Sacred prayer
And we'd swear
To remember it
All too well, yeah

Well, maybe we got lost in translation
Maybe I asked for too much
But maybe this thing was a masterpiece
Till you tore it all up
Running scared
I was there
I remember it
All too well

And you call me up again
Just to break me like a promise
So casually cruel
In the name of being honest
I'm a crumpled up
Piece of paper lying here
Cause I remember it
All, all, all

They say all's well that ends well
But I'm in a new hell
Every time
You double-cross my mind
You said if we had been closer
In age, maybe
It would have been fine
And that made me want to die

The idea you had of me
Who was she, a never-needy
Ever lovely jewel
Whose shine reflects on you
Not weeping in a party bathroom
Some actress asking me what happened
You
That's what happened: you

You, who charmed my dad
With self-effacing jokes
Sipping coffee like you were
On a late night show
But then he watched me watch the front door all night
Willing you to come
And he said: it's supposed to be fun
Turning twenty-one

Time won't fly
It's like I'm paralyzed by it
I'd like to be my old self again
But I'm still trying to find it
After plaid shirt days
And nights when you made me your own
Now you mail back my things
And I walk home alone

But you keep my old scarf
From that very first week
Cause it reminds you of innocence
And it smells like me
You can't get
Rid of it
Cause you remember it
All too well, yeah

Cause there we are again
When I loved you so
Back before you lost
The one real thing you've ever known
It was rare
I was there
I remember it
All too well

Wind in my hair
You were there
You remember it all
Down the stairs
You were there
You remember it all
It was rare
I was there
I remember it
All too well

And I was never good at telling jokes
But the punchline goes
I'll get older
But your lovers stay my age
From when your Brooklyn broke
My skin and bones
I'm a soldier
Who's returning half her weight

And did the twin flame bruise paint you blue
Just between us, did the love affair maim you too
Cause in this city's barren cold
I still remember the first fall of snow
And how it glistened
As it fell
I remember it
All too well

Just between us
Did the love affair maim you
All too well
Just between us
Do you remember it
All too well
Just between us
I remember it (Just between us)
All too well

Wind in my hair
I was there, I was there
Down the stairs
I was there, I was there
Sacred prayer
I was there, I was there
It was rare, you remember it
All too well

Wind in my hair
I was there, I was there
Down the stairs
I was there, I was there (I was there)
Sacred prayer
I was there, I was there
It was rare, you remember it
All too well

Wind in my hair
I was there, I was there
Down the stairs
I was there, I was there
Sacred prayer
I was there, I was there
It was rare, you remember it

Wind in my hair
I was there, I was there
Down the stairs
I was there, I was there
Sacred prayer
I was there, I was there
It was rare, you remember it
