Taylor Swift Songs About Joe Alwyn

News broke on 10 April that Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn had quietly called it quits this spring after six years together. Though the pair were together for a long time, both were mostly tight-lipped about their connection and life together — except, that is, when it came to Swift's songwriting.

The pair first connected while Swift was working on her 2017 album "Reputation," and fans believe quite a few songs on the record about about her then-new boyfriend. Then, many of the songs on her "Lover" album, released in 2019, are all about falling deeper in love with her longtime beau. Her single "Lover," which includes quite a few wedding references, even sparked major engagement rumors for the pair.

And when Swift released "Folklore" and "Evermore" in 2020, not only were a few of the new songs about her romance with Alwyn, but she also teamed up with her partner to write some of the songs. Alwyn was credited on the songs "Exile," "My Tears Ricochet," "August," "This Is Me Trying," "Illicit Affairs," "Betty," "Champagne Problems," "Coney Island," and "Evermore" using the pseudonym William Bowery. He's also a songwriter on her most recent album, "Midnights," and credited on the song "Sweet Nothing." Other songs on Swift's latest release, like "Snow on the Beach" and "Mastermind," also appear to reference their relationship.

Swift is currently on tour, and fans have wondered if the Eras Tour setlist will change in the future to omit some of the songs about Alwyn. On 26 May, Swift released "You're Losing Me," which seems to be the first song to directly address their split.

Ahead, revisit the songs that Swift wrote about Alwyn during their relationship and the aftermath.
