Swift recorded the song, which is part of the Spotify Singles series, at The Tracking Room in Nashville. Other than "September," Swift also dropped an acoustic version of "Delicate." The song is included in the singer's Reputation album.
Taylor Swift's 'September' Cover Criticized
Following the release of Swift's "September" cover on Friday, April 13, at least one publication claimed that the singer disrespected the classic song. Monique Judge, a writer for The Grapevine, said that Swift did not need to release a cover of the song.
"There are certain songs you don't mess with, especially if you don't have the range, and we all know Taylor Swift has all the range of a dial tone. Seriously, girl. What were you thinking?" wrote Judge.

Swift's Reputation tour will kick off on May 8 in Glendale, Arizona. Her opening acts include Camila Cabello and Charli XCX. Her shows in the United States, New Zealand, England, Ireland, and Australia, will wrap up in November.

It is still unclear whether Swift will sing some of the most popular songs that she released years ago. Her most notable works include "Shake It Off," "Love Story," "Blank Space," "Bad Blood," "You Belong With Me," "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," "Our Song," and "White Horse."
Camila Cabello Talks About Taylor Swift
Last month, Swift was also linked to a controversy surrounding Fifth Harmony. Cabello said that the "Red" singer had nothing to do with her decision to leave the group.
"It annoyed me that people said [Taylor] was encouraging me because I know that she probably got a lot of negative criticism for that. Absolutely nobody could ever persuade me to do anything," said Cabello.
