Jack Antonoff Says This Taylor Swift Song Made Him Feel “Punched in the Gut”

In a world where musical magic happens, Jack Antonoff spilled the beans on his fantastical journey with Taylor Swift. The 39-year-old maestro of melodies and the 34-year-old superstar extraordinaire joined forces in the enchanted year of 2014 when they embarked on the sonic adventure called “1989.”

In a recent chat with Vulture, Jack dished out the deets on their musical escapades, revealing that each of Taylor’s eras is like a surprise party, and he’s the wide-eyed guest of honor. Picture Jack in a party hat, surrounded by musical confetti, pondering the wonders of T-Swizzle’s creativity.

And oh, brace yourself for the gut-punching drama! According to Jack, one particular song hit him right in the musical solar plexus. As he recalls, “The stuff that shocks me the most is someone’s vulnerability in a song. The end of ‘You’re on Your Own, Kid’ is one of those moments for me.” Imagine Jack, clutching his heart dramatically, as the sheer beauty of Taylor’s vulnerability knocks the wind out of him.

In a plot twist that rivals the best of Broadway, he reminisces, “I remember, she wrote that right in front of me, and then we put it down, and I was completely punched in the gut. Beautiful.” It’s like witnessing the creation of a musical masterpiece right before his very eyes, and he’s both the witness and the victim of an emotional knockout. Bravo, Taylor!

But Jack doesn’t stop there; he drops some wisdom on us, revealing, “The stuff that shocks or surprises me is often the most beautifully written stuff,” adding, “With her, I’m constantly taken aback.” It’s like Taylor has a musical wand, and every time she waves it, Jack is left spellbound, wondering what other musical spells she’s got up her sleeve.

And just when you thought the rollercoaster of emotions was over, enter “You’re On Your Own, Kid,” the emotional powerhouse tucked away as Track 5 on “Midnights.” In Taylor’s enchanted book of traditions, Track 5 is the tear-jerker, the heartstring-puller, the emotional rollercoaster that leaves fans reaching for the tissue box. Jack knows the drill, and he’s here to remind us that in the world of Taylor Swift, emotions run wild, and we’re all just along for the hilarious, gut-punching ride!
