Damon Albarn recently spoke to The LA Times on Taylor Swift’s songwriting, asserting that she does not write her own songs and that there is a differentiation between a songwriter and a co-songwriter.
As expected, Taylor was unhappy and hit back with a tweet saying: “I was such a big fan of yours until I saw this. I write ALL of my own songs. Your hot take is completely false and SO damaging. You don’t have to like my songs but it’s really f**ked up to try and discredit my writing. WOW.”
Nevertheless, Albarn has been quick to put the record straight, saying: “I had a conversation about songwriting and sadly it was reduced to clickbait. I apologize unreservedly and unconditionally. The last thing I would want to do is discredit your songwriting. I hope you understand.”
