“This Love (Taylor’s Version)” features minimal, immaculate production, that lets her poetic lyrics take center stage. “This love is good, this love is bad/ This love is alive back from the dead, oh/ These hands had to let it go free, and/ This love came back to me, oh”, she sings in the song’s airy, ethereal chorus. 1989 is quite possibly Swift’s most commercially successful album, released in 2014, selling over nine million copies. And you can hear her growth over the years in “This Love (Taylor’s Version)”.
