Taylor Swift Covers Earth, Wind & Fire's 'September' for Spotify
Apr 15 2018
Both of the new tracks were recorded in the Tracking Room in Nashville as part of the Spotify Singles series. Another added, "That Taylor Swift cover of "September" sounds like housing discrimination".
"We think about everything they might've heard about us, every reason they wouldn't want us", she told Spotify about the track. Every step forward toward that other person scares us, but it thrills us too.
First, her hushed, banjo-driven take on EWF's most popular song (head here for an excellent history of the original version) received such a torrent of less-than-enthusiastic attention on social media that Hollywood Life published a story with the headline "Twitter Needs to Seriously Chill About Taylor Swift " s "September' Cover". The Swedish streaming company recently also got the exclusive release of Swift's "Delicate" video, and have been promoting her own personal playlists.
"I just listened to the new taylor swift cover of september by earth wind and fire", one user wrote alongside a gif reading, "The line must be drawn HERE!"
September is one of the most well regarded hits from Earth, Wind & Fire, and was originally written by Maurice White, Al McKay and Allee Willis. She included Always Be MyBaby by Anderson East as well as Truly, Madly, Deeply by Yoke Lore.
Monique Judge, a columnist for the black culture magazine the Root, also said, "There are certain songs you don't mess with, especially if you don't have the range, and we all know Taylor Swift has all the range of a dial tone".
