Longtime collaborators Jack Antonoff and Taylor Swift share a new version of “Anti-Hero,” which comes off the recently released album Midnights. The lead singer of the rock band Bleachers wrote the original version of the song, along with 10 other tracks on the record-breaking LP like “Labyrinth” and “Glitch.”
The chemistry between the two is undeniable and adds a sweet touch to the song. Antonoff sings the second verse of the song, changing the famous Sexy Baby part to Art Bro, “Sometimes, I Feel Like Everybody/ Is An Art Bro Lately/ And I Just Judge Them On The Hill.” The duo have a funny interaction with each other as Swift sings, “Did you hear my covert narcissism I disguise as altruism / Like some kind of congressman,” and Antonoff replies to her that she’ll be fine.
Swift posted via her social media, “We’d been toying with ideas and had written a few things we loved, but Midnights actually really coalesced and flowed out of us when our partners (both actors) did a film together in Panama. Jack and I found ourselves back in New York, alone, recording every night, staying up late and exploring old memories and midnights past.”
After the release of Midnights, Swift shared a “3am” version a few hours later. She plans to promote the album in March, touring with Paramore, Phoebe Bridgers, Muna, among others.
