Taylor Swift fans are in for a treat.
She even added a fun and very Taylor touch by changing the line "Do you remember the 21st night of September?" to "28th night" -which may confuse the average listener, but that hardcore Swifties quickly identified as the starting date of her relationship with boyfriend Joe Alwyn.
"Delicate is a song about the vulnerability that immediately surfaces in all of us the minute we meet someone we want to like us".
The cover song will be as contribution to the Spotify Singles series, which has previously hosted other pop stars covering classics from previous generations-Miley Cyrus covered Tom Petty's "Wildflowers", Demi Lovato performed a version of Aretha Franklin's "Ain't No Way", Arcade Fire gave their own rendition of John Lennon's "Mind Games", and so on.More news: Kevin Durant's Contract Plans For Offseason Are Revealed
Other users, meanwhile, defended Swift's song.
The other notable adjustment Swift made to the song is a key lyric change.
Swift gave a hint of things to come Thursday morning on her Instagram page, where she posted a short video.
Swift's country remake is a tiresome, banjo-playing rendition that takes the wind (excuse the pun) out of the group's 1978 upbeat funk track.
September is one of the most well regarded hits from Earth, Wind & Fire, and was originally written by Maurice White, Al McKay and Allee Willis.
