"It's just me. There's no dancers, unfortunately," Taylor Swift explained from behind the “tiny desk” at the NPR offices. The singer settled in for four amazing, stripped-down versions of her songs for a Tiny Desk Concert, offering three from her just-released Lover, and the “autumn classic” and Swiftie favorite, “All Too Well,” from 2012’s Red.
"I just decided to take this as an opportunity to show you guys how the songs sounded when I first wrote them," Swift said, as close to 300 employees gathered around to watch her perform. The set also included her gender-bias busting anthem “The Man,” the already epic “Lover,” and the lovelorn “Death By A Thousand Cuts.” You can watch the full performance from Taylor Swift here.

Earlier this week, fans scrambled to secure tickets to next year’s Lover Fest, a two-day celebration of Swift on both coasts happening in July of 2020. “For me, the ‘Lover’ album is open fields and sunsets and SUMMER,” Taylor Swift shared as she announced the shows last month. “I want to celebrate the album and perform it live with you in a way that feels authentic to the music.”
This weekend Swift will take part in RADIO.COM’s 7th annual We Can Survive concert, happening at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, October 19. Taylor Swift will perform along with Billie Eilish, Camila Cabello, Jonas Brothers, Lizzo, Marshmello, and Becky G.
