Taylor Swift Confirms Joe Alwyn Helped Write Songs On Folklore

Folklore: the long pond studio sessions features performances of every song on Taylor Swift’s new album, recorded at the Hudson Valley studio. In between songs, Taylor sits with producers Jack Antonoff and The National’s Aaron Dessner and they talk about the conception of the songs and how they each came together, passing music and lyrics back and forth remotely during quarantine. Joe Alwyn wasn’t in attendance for the filming of the Disney+ film (that we saw, anyway), but during the conversation about “Exile,” Taylor finally confirmed that yes, William Bowery is Joe Alwyn.

Apparently, The Favourite actor is quite the piano player, and when Taylor heard him singing the first verse of what would become “Exile,” she was “entranced.”
