Taylor Swift Releases Alternate Version of 'The Lakes' for One Year Anniversary of 'Folklore' - Listen Here!

Taylor Swift is celebrating the one year anniversary of Folklore!

The 31-year-old performer took to social media to reflect on her hit album one year after it’s release and share the original version of the album’s bonus track, “The Lakes.”

“It’s been 1 year since we escaped the real world together and imagined ourselves someplace simpler,” Taylor wrote on Twitter. “With tall trees & salt air. Where you can wear lace nightgowns that make you look like a Victorian ghost & no one will side eye you cause no one is around.”

“To say thank you for all you have done to make this album what it was,” she continued. “I wanted to give you the original version of ‘The Lakes’. Happy 1 year anniversary to Rebekah, Betty, Inez, James, Augustine and the stories we all created around them. Happy Anniversary, folklore.”

“The Lakes” was one of the more personal songs on Folklore, seemingly making several references to her relationship with Joe Alwyn.

The newly released version of the track was discussed by producer Jack Antonoff in an interview with Billboard earlier this week.

“On one of my favorite songs on Folklore, ‘The Lakes,’ there was this big orchestral version, and Taylor was like, ‘Eh, make it small,’” he told the outlet. “I had gotten lost in the string arrangements and all this stuff, and I took everything out. I was just like, ‘Oh, my God!’ We were not together because that record was made [remotely], but I remember being in the studio alone like, ‘Holy s–t, this is so perfect.’”
