Taylor Swift continues to be the most productive person of 2020, sharing another remix of “Willow,” off her surprise album Evermore.

The “Willow – Lonely Witch Version” strips back the sparse single even further and follows the previous “Dancing Witch” version, remixed by Swedish singer-songwriter Elvira Anderfjärd, which Swift shared on her 31st birthday last weekend.

“Witches be like ‘Sometimes I just want to listen to music while pining away/sulking/staring out a window,’” Swift wrote on socials, accompanied by a photo of her looking cozy indoors. “It’s me. I’m witches. Never fear, the ‘willow lonely witch remix’ is here.”

The singer-songwriter also shared with fans a behind-the-scenes clip featuring photos from the official “Willow” video. Produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner, “Willow” is the lead single off Evermore.

Dessner was also a key collaborator on Folklore, and played an integral part on Evermore, along with producer Jack Antonoff; Swift’s partner, Joe Alwyn (who writes under the pseudonym William Bowery); and Justin Vernon, of Bon Iver.

Swift surprised fans over the summer with her indie-folk quarantine album Folklore, signaling a new sound and direction in her career. And only six months later, she followed it up with her ninth studio album, Evermore, released on December 11

“Ever since I was 13, I’ve been excited about turning 31 because it’s my lucky number backwards, which is why I wanted to surprise you with this now,” she wrote on Instagram after revealing the tracklist.

“You’ve all been so caring, supportive and thoughtful on my birthdays and so this time I thought I would give you something!”

Much like Folklore, Swift’s follow-up quarantine album Evermore has also been met with critical praise.

“It’s a lush, tender, and beautiful album, steadier if less varied than ‘Folklore,’ and infused with backward-looking wisdom,” writes Amanda Petrusich for The New Yorker in her review.
