Joe Alwyn Says Collaboration with Taylor Swift Was An Accident

Joe Alwyn Says Collaboration with Taylor Swift Was An Accident.

Joe Alwyn claims that writing songs with Taylor Swift happened by chance.

The ‘Conversations With Friends’ actor William Bowery co-wrote two tracks on his girlfriend’s ‘Folklore’ album and three on the follow-up ‘Evermore.’ 

But he insists the two didn’t set out to form a musical partnership.

“It was the most accidental thing to happen in lockdown,” he said in the new issue of GQ Hype magazine.

“It’s three o’clock. It’s time to write a song!’ it wasn’t like that. It was just messing around on the piano and singing badly enough to be overheard and then thinking, ‘What if we tried to finish it together?’

Joe found Justin Vernon of Bon Iver singing “Exile” with Taylor to be particularly “surreal” but described it as a “perk” of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Sending it to Justin with the idea of doing a duet and getting voice notes of him singing over the top and stuff was surreal,” he continued. It was a benefit of being in lockdown.”

The 31-year-old actor and the ‘Shake It Off’ hitmaker kept their collaboration a secret at first because they didn’t want their romance to overshadow the music.

“The idea was that people would just listen to the music instead of focusing on how we wrote it together,” Joe explained.

Despite the positive feedback, Joe has no plans to write any more songs with his girlfriend, despite enjoying the experience.

“It was fun to do it together, and I was proud of it,” he said. It was wonderful to receive such a warm welcome.”

The ‘Harriet’ actor confirmed that a version of ‘Exile’ with him on it is likely to exist somewhere, but he hopes it will never be made public.

“Jesus, there’s probably a voice note somewhere that should be burned,” he exclaimed.
