A gentle acoustic ballad that nevertheless has a bit of energy behind it, the vivid track is like a sonic diary entry dedicated to the lasting residue of love — even one that ends too soon. It features that classic Swift sentiment of being both universal and deeply personal at the same time, and Morris adds a gorgeous harmony vocal to it.
“My favorite thing that I don’t get to do very often is to slip into someone’s world and just harmonize,” the country singer-songwriter wrote on Instagram. “Thank you @taylorswift for having me be a small part of your reimagining of the Fearless era.”
Indeed, “You All Over Me” was part of Swift’s Fearless album era, although it never made it into public view. The track was reportedly written but never recorded in 2008, part of the work behind Swift’s Grammy Album of the Year winning second LP, and it wasn’t the only new/old track Swift unveiled Friday (March 26).
The pop superstar also dropped another fresh take on her classic “Love Story” — this time a danceable “Elvira Remix” — adding some thumping rhythm to the Romeo and Juliet hit. It continues Swift’s process of re-recording early albums in the dramatic wake of her former record label’s sale in 2019, and Taylor Swift released a “Taylor’s Version” of “Love Story” last month.
