Taylor Swift Teams With Dixie Chicks on Poignant New Tune, “Soon You’ll Get Better” [Listen]

Taylor Swift dropped her seventh studio album, Lover, on Aug. 23.

The 18-song offering features a notable collaboration with the Dixie Chicks on the new tune, “Soon You’ll Get Better,” which Taylor co-penned about her mom, Andrea, who has been battling cancer.

During a YouTube Live Stream on Aug. 22, Taylor revealed the song was “really, really hard to write . . . We as a family decided to put this on the album, and it’s something I’m so proud of, but it’s just really hard. I can’t sing it. It’s hard to just emotionally deal with that song.”

The song features background vocals from the Dixie Chicks, as well as stripped-down banjo and fiddle.
