Swift's version sees her voice backed by banjos, transforming it into a bluegrassy track.
Swift has released two new songs exclusively to Spotify Singles, the streaming service's weekly playlist that focuses on two new songs from a single artist.
Taylor Swift is heading back to her country roots. on an Earth, Wind & Fire song. The other notable change here is Swift's adjustment of the song's opening line: She shifts it from "Do you remember the 21th night of September?" to "Do you remember the 28th night of September", which may be a reference to her relationship with boyfriend Joe Alwyn.
One is an acoustic cut of Delicate while the other is a cover of September by Earth, Wind and Fire. On April 12, she got fans in a swirl by posting on Instagram that she'd be dropping an unnamed and unexpected cover single on Spotify, along with an alternate version of her latest single, "Delicate". But Black Twitter wants the song to be destroy from existence.
Other users, meanwhile, defended Swift's song. And much to Swifties' surprise and delight, the new songs prove Old Taylor is still very much alive and kickin'. "People who are mad at Taylor Swift for changing the genre of September are the same people who think I Will Always Love You is an original Whitney Houston song", one user tweeted.
