ICYMI: TAYLOR'S TINY DESK CONCERT

Taylor Swift delivered a bit of a career retrospective during her “NPR Tiny Desk” concert, discussing the ins and outs of songwriting for songs such as “The Man,” “All Too Well” and “Death By a Thousand Cuts.”

She included three songs from her current Republic Records release Lover.

Of “The Man,” she said,  she wondered if she could write a song about double standards for men And women. “Is there a concise and catchy way to write a song about this?,” she says she asked herself. “What angle would I take if I were to write a song about this? So I decided the most fun thing to do would be to imagine what my life would be like, and what people would say about my life, if I did all the same things—but if I was a man.”

And those songs about breakups? Well, they’re not all about her. Check it out.
