"I was excited and honored when Taylor approached me in late April about maybe writing some songs remotely together," Dessler wrote. "I thought it would take a while for song ideas to come and I had no expectations as far as what we could accomplish remotely. But a few hours after sharing music, my phone lit up with a voice memo from Taylor of a fully written version of a song — the momentum never really stopped."
"I'm very proud of all these songs and profoundly grateful to @taylorswift for inviting me into and trusting me in her process," he went on. "She is one of the most talented, hardworking and deeply caring artists I've ever encountered. There's a palpable humanity and warmth and raw emotion in these songs that I hope you'll love and take comfort in as much as I do."
