In the song “no body, no crime,” a collaboration with Haim, Taylor avenges the murder of a woman named Este who confronts her cheating husband.

“Working with the Haim sisters on ‘No Body, No Crime’ was pretty hilarious because it came about after I wrote a pretty dark murder mystery song and had named the character Este, because she’s the friend I have who would be stoked to be in a song like that,” she told EW.

“I had finished the song and was nailing down some lyric details and texted her, ‘You’re not going to understand this text for a few days but…which chain restaurant do you like best?’ and I named a few,” she continued.

“She chose Olive Garden and a few days later I sent her the song and asked if they would sing on it. It was an immediate ‘YES.’”

“We can’t figure out why we hadn’t collaborated sooner. We’ve toured together, played live together, choreographed dances like we’re at summer camp, but it took a song about avenging your friend’s murder to give us the idea to take this step. Long story short, I’m the 4th Haim sister now, confirmed,” she concluded.

Taylor wrote a few songs on the album with boyfriend Joe Alwyn. Find out which ones!
