Yungblud dropped by the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge this week, where he delivered a hauntingly beautiful mashup of Taylor Swift’s folklore cut “cardigan” and Avril Lavigne’s 2002 ballad, “I’m With You.”
The rocker, whose album Weird! is dropping on Nov. 13, is seen belting the song on an acoustic guitar, backed by a string orchestra safely seated six feet apart.
The Black Hearts Club weren’t the only ones swooning over the cover. Swift herself retweeted the performance with a sweet message. “WELL this took my breath away and I’m honored to hear Cardigan intertwined with the wonderful @AvrilLavigne’s masterpiece ‘I’m with you,'” she wrote. “Bravo and thanks @yungblud!!”
