Taylor Swift Covers Earth, Wind & Fire's 'September' for Spotify

Instead of the opening line, "Do you remember the 21st night of September", Swift flipped the date, singing, "the 28th night of September". Another added, "That Taylor Swift cover of "September" sounds like housing discrimination".

Early Thursday morning, Taylor Swift posted a teaser on her Instagram, with an caption that said she would be releasing a cover of Earth, Wind & Fire's 1978 hit "September".

Swift has released two new songs exclusively to Spotify Singles, the streaming service's weekly playlist that focuses on two new songs from a single artist. Unfortunately, Taylor Swift made a decision to cover the song and fans are NOT loving it at all.

Other users, meanwhile, defended Swift's song.

Overall, the song has strong enough bones to endure even a total 180-degree genre change, and it's undeniably a lyrically romantic tune that's right up Swift's alley.

"Unaltered in the press release were Swift's comments about the other track: "'Delicate" is a song about the vulnerability that immediately surfaces in all of us the minute we meet someone we want to like us", it reads. While theirs was more "dance floor anthem", Swift's is more "warm coffeehouse ballad" - she slathers the track in banjos and lets her breathy vocals handle those iconic "ba de ya's".
