Taylor Swift ‘Midnights’: Joe Alwyn’s pseudonym appears on ‘Midnights’ track


As Swifties around the world countdown to midnight and the release of Taylor Swift’s tenth album “Midnights,” she tried to keep her fans happy by dropping a few hints about her new music in recent days.

Among them, she listed songwriting credits given to actress and friend Zoë Kravitz and others, including “Folklore” contributor William Bowery, who co-wrote “Sweet Nothing.”

Bowery, as any decent Swift watcher can tell you, is an alias chosen by her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. He was credited under Bowery as co-writer of two tracks “Folklore”, “Betty” and “Exile”, causing speculation at the time about the writer’s true identity.

Swift put the guesswork to rest in a 2020 Disney+ documentary about the project.

“There’s been a lot of talk about William Bowery and his identity because he’s not a real person,” Swift said in the documentary.

“So William Bowery is Joe, as we know. And Joe plays the piano beautifully and he’s always playing and inventing and creating things,” she added.

Fans will have to wait a few more hours for “Sweet Nothing” to debut to hear the couple’s latest collaboration.
