Did Taylor Swift’s brother re-record one of her songs for ‘Killing Eve’?

Listen to the new, sinister cover of “Look What You Made Me Do.”

A version of Taylor Swift’s hit song “Look What You Made Me Do” was featured on an episode of Killing Eve earlier this week—one that fans suspect that was sung by the pop star’s brother.

Before the episode aired, Swift tweeted that she was “VERY STOKED” about the sinister, slow-burning cover credited to Jack Leopards & the Dolphin Club.

Fans-turned-sleuths quickly discovered, though, that Jack Leopards & the Dolphin Club have little to no history as a band. However, per its credits, the song was produced by Jack Antonoff (who also produced the original song) and a certain Nils Sjöberg: the pseudonym Swift used when she co-wrote DJ and ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris’ hit “This is What You Came for,” featuring Rihanna.

The singer’s rabid fanbase also deduced that the identity of the mystery boy on the cover art is Swift’s brother, Austin Swift—whom, according to the Daily Mail, Taylor asked show creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge to include on the Killing Eve soundtrack. It’s compelling stuff, though Swift has yet to weigh in on any of this speculation.

This cover of “Look What You Made Me Do,” which appears on Swift’s 2017 album Reputation, is especially noteworthy considering that the pop star has announced her intent to re-record all her recordings owned by her former label Big Machine—namely, all releases before her 2019 album Lover—following a public dispute with the label’s owner Scooter Braun and the man who signed her, Scott Borchetta. Swift will contractually be permitted to re-record her back catalog from November 2020.

Regardless of whether the Swift siblings are involved, Jack Leopards & the Dolphin Club’s cover of “Look What You Made Me Do” is worth a listen. Stream it below:
