On paper, these three entities are worlds apart, but Yungblud mashes it all together by toning down his usually wild and chaotic self into something a little softer and more vulnerable.
Sharing the cover, Yungblud took to social media to say that he covered his “favourite girls”.

Swift caught wind of the cover, and expressed her love and gratitude for it.
“WELL this took my breath away and I’m honored to hear Cardigan intertwined with the wonderful @AvrilLavigne‘s masterpiece ‘I’m with you’,” she said.
“Bravo and thanks @yungblud!!”
