Summer is just heating up, Harry Styles’ new album is weeks away, The Summer I Turned Pretty is so close we can see the beach, and A NEW TAYLOR SWIFT SINGLE IS COMING.
Jenny Han, the writer and YA genius behind favorites like To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and its sequels and The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy (soon to be a Prime Video original series) decided to tease fans on TikTok yesterday when she posted a video announcing that The Summer I Turned Pretty had gotten a Taylor Swift song for its soundtrack.
“You guys have been asking (screaming) (crying) …for me to put a Taylor song in The Summer I Turned Pretty. You know I always like to give the fans what they want. So… which Taylor song do you think we got on the show??!” Jenny wrote over clips of the beach and a compilation of Taylor’s songs that included “Wildest Dreams,” “Cruel Summer,” and “August.” All of the songs are very on theme for a summer drama!
Some Swifties noticed that Jenny wasn’t the only one teasing. Taylor Nation, Taylor’s official management team, commented on the video.
Despite Taylor Nation’s shushing, things didn’t stay quiet for long. Prime Video released a new teaser for The Summer I Turned Pretty that includes a new Taylor’s Version track. The single is also now available to purchase on Taylor’s website along with a ton of merch for 1989 (Taylor’s Version) and Speak Now (Taylor’s Version). (The new merch is under a tab called “The Old Taylor Shop” which is a merch category we haven’t seen since reputation came out in 2017.)
Taylor also took to social media to share the news.
“Thank you Jenny Han for debuting my version of This Love in the trailer for The Summer I Turned Pretty!! I’ve always been so proud of this song and I’m very 🥺🥺🥺 about this turn of events – This Love (Taylor’s Version) comes out tonight at m i d n i g h t!”
Swifties, what era are we in?
