Vance Joy Gives Taylor Swift's 'I Know Places' A Folksy Makeover

(Radio.com) Sometimes the best covers happen when an artist renders another's track near-unrecognizable. Such is the case with Vance Joy's rendition of Taylor Swift's 1989 track "I Know Places."

At the Aussie singer-songwriter's hands, Swift's high-stakes, love-conquers-all ballad is transformed into a folksy slowburner. Gone are the crashing beat and harmonies, and replacing them is Joy's haunting voice set to his acoustic guitar.

Joy's cover is somewhat of a reciprocation as Swift gave shine to his standout track "Riptide," helping it to soar to No. 1 in Australia and No. 17 in the United States when she covered it for BBC Radio 1. Check it out here.
