“I felt like I was going to pass out” – Deltaplex News
Swifties are in for a treat watching the new Prime Video series The Summer I Turned Pretty, based on the best-selling book trilogy of the same name from the author of To All the Boys. Jenny Han. That’s because Taylor Swift’s music is an important part of the soundtrack.
“It was a real dream for me to get his music for the show,” Han told ABC Audio.
Several Swift songs are played throughout the series at pivotal moments, but Han says one was particularly special to her.
“I won’t say, like, what song it is, but there’s one where I was like, ‘Please, this is the song I was listening to while I was writing the book. We need this song,” she says. “And when I heard that she had approved the use, I felt like I was going to pass out.”
Han says she expects SITP fans to be excited about the inclusion of Swift’s music in the TV adaptation.
“I’ve always been a fan, and book fans are fans too,” she says. “In the Venn diagram of The Summer I Turned Pretty fans and Taylor fans, I feel like it’s literally a circle.” (AUDIO IS ABC 1-ON-1)
“This Love (Taylor’s Version)”, Swift’s re-recording of a song from her 1989 album, premiered in series trailer and was later released the same day.
“Thank you @jennyhan for dropping my version of ‘This Love’ in the trailer for @thesummeriturnedpretty,” Taylor posted on instagram after the release of the trailer. “I’ve always been so proud of this song and I’m very [emotional] on this turn of events.
The Summer I Got Pretty is streaming now.
