This is not folklore: Joe Alwyn is a Grammy winner.
Whereas the British star is most identified for his appearing roles in The Favourite and the upcoming sequence Conversations With Friends, he grew to become knowledgeable songwriter throughout lockdown, collaborating together with his longtime girlfriend Taylor Swift on her albums folklore and evermore. And when folklore received Album of the 12 months at the 2020 Grammys, Alwyn—who co-wrote and co-produced songs “betty” and “exile” beneath the pseudonym William Bowery—scored a trophy.
“That was a surreal bonus of lockdown,” he informed The Guardian in a brand new interview. “That is an understatement.”
As Alwyn defined to the outlet, he and Swift hadn’t deliberate on working collectively, it happened organically. “It wasn’t like, ‘It is 5 o’clock, it is time to try to write a tune collectively,'” he shared. “It happened from messing round on a piano, and singing badly, then being overheard, and being, like, ‘Let’s examine what occurs if we get to the tip of it collectively.'”
