Why Fans Want to Know More About The 1975's Scrapped Taylor Swift Collab

Taylor Swift, Matt Healy, Karlie Kloss

Matty Healy just admitted The 1975 worked on an unreleased version of Midnights.


The 1975’s Matty Healy dropped a juicy tidbit during an interview this week, admitting that he and his bandmates collaborated with Taylor Swift on music for her recently released album, Midnights. However, it didn’t make the final cut.

“We actually worked a bit on that, but the version of it never came out,” Healy hesitantly told KROQ at the DTS Sound Space.

Without further elaboration, it’s unclear what sort of collaboration between Swift and The 1975 took place. Back in September, prior to Midnights’ release, Healy responded to a rumor that the band was featured on a song on the album called “In My Dreams” (which does not exist — or at least wasn’t released as part of Midnights) by calling it “FAKE NEWS.”

While most musicians end up with songs that don’t make it onto each album, Swift has notoriously had a fairly large number of them herself. In fact, she has recently been releasing some of these songs as part of her efforts to re-record her pre-Lover discography. The re-release of her 2012 album Red alone included 10 songs “from the vault.”

She has no reason to re-release Midnights in the same way down the line, but it’s always possible she could opt to unearth other songs that were cut from the album whenever she pleases. And, if a collaboration with The 1975 is among them, fans would be itching to hear it.

What makes things particularly interesting is the fact that the infamous “kissgate” — the moment where Swift and gal pal Karlie Kloss were caught on video either kissing or, uh, speaking really closely to one another, as some fans claim — took place at a concert for The 1975 in New York City.

Considering "Kaylor" truthers are convinced her Midnights track “Question…” was about that very moment, we definitely need to know more about her collab with The 1975 — and why, exactly, it was scrapped.

What is The 1975's biggest hit?

"Chocolate" was The 1975's most successful song.

Why are they called The 1975?

The band's name came from a Jack Kerouac poetry book with "1 June, The 1975" written on the back.

Is The 1975 still a band?

As of November 2022, yes.
