Vance Joy has quickly become one of our favorite acts to Pop Up in the past year, beginning with his breakout smash “Riptide” all the way through to his upcoming debut LP, Dream Your Life Away. But we’re not the only ones caught in the wave of love for the Aussie singer-songwriter: 1989 darling Taylor Swift‘s getting in on the action too.

During her performance on Live Lounge for Fearne Cotton (where she also sang her #1 smash, “Shake It Off”), Tay took on Vance’s track. The stripped-down rendition saw the songstress taking down the peppiness of her recent hit and reverting back to singer-songwriter mode, seated at her piano and emotionally crooning the tune.

Watch the delicate performance up top, and watch her perform “Shake It Off” as well below.
