Haven’t had enough Taylor Swift performances lately? Good — there’s another one comin’ atcha, with the singer-songwriter taking to The Ellen Degeneres Show to perform her ballad “Begin Again.”

The performance was actually taped last month when Swift turned out a mini-concert for Ellen in Los Angeles, but they’ve been holding out on unveiling it until now — probably to help with flagging sales of Swift’s Red. (Just kidding! It’s still demolishing the charts.) At any rate, it’s a lovely and sensitive rendition of the song from Swift, who doesn’t do anything new with it, but imbues the wistful ballad with the same hopeful heartache as always. Watch it up top.
