Brie Larson covers Taylor Swift’s ‘The 1’ on social media

'The 1' opens Swift's new album 'Folklore'

Brie Larson has shared on social media a brief rendition of ‘The 1’, the opening track of Taylor Swift‘s new album ‘Folklore’.

Taking to Twitter, Larson posted a video of her with her guitar singing the first minute or so of the track, writing “This cover of “the 1” by @taylorswift13 is dedicated to my forever Swiftie friend, Jessie.”

Watch Larson’s cover of the song below:



Swift enlisted her usual collaborator Jack Antonoff to help her create the album, but also linked up with Bon Iver and The National‘s Aaron Dessner.

“It does feel like an ongoing collaboration,” Dessner recently said of his newfound professional relationship with Swift.

“Now Taylor is starting to help with other things. We’re bouncing other ideas off each other, whether it’s Big Red Machine or other things. There’s a community aspect. I think that’s how music should be.”


Upon release last Friday, ‘Folklore’ broke a slew of first-day streaming records. “‘Folklore’ feels fresh, forward-thinking and, most of all, honest. The glossy production she’s lent on for the past half-decade is cast aside for simpler, softer melodies and wistful instrumentation,” NME said in a review of the album.

“It’s the sound of an artist who’s bored of calculated releases and wanted to try something different. Swift disappeared into the metaphorical woods while writing ‘Folklore’, and she’s emerged stronger than ever.”
