By Michael Jul 9, 2024

The variations just keep on coming. On Monday (July 8), Taylor Swift dropped a new acoustic version of her The Tortured Poets Department song “Fortnight” featuring Post Malone. The hushed take on the single from Swift’s latest No. 1 album features the two singers trading vocals over a shimmery, unplugged arrangement.

The refresh is bundled with the original album version as well as bubbling remix by New York indie duo Cults. In an Instagram post on Tuesday morning (July 9) the band re-posted the striking cover image of the single featuring Swift modeling Posty’s signature face tats along with a message thanking the pop idol for roping them into her expansive universe.

“Honored to have been given the opportunity to remix legend @taylorswift song ‘Fortnight,’” they wrote.

The remix and unplugged take are the latest iterations of the double album that has been issued in a wide variety of physical variants, including multiple CD, vinyl, cassette and deluxe takes.

Swift recently added another accolade to her already bulging basked of records this week when TTPD hit its 11th consecutive and total week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 (dated July 13), which ties the singer’s latest with both her 1989 and Fearless as her longest-leading No. 1 albums. TTPD is also the first album by a woman to spend 11 weeks in a row at No. 1 since the Whitney Houston-led soundtrack to The Bodyguard had a 13-straight week run together at No. 1 (of its 20 total nonconsecutive weeks at the top ) from December 1992 to March 1993.

Swift’s Eras Tour juggernaut marches on this week, with the first of two shows at the Stadion Letzigrund Zurich on Tuesday (July 9).
