Based on her social media presence, Taylor Swift seemed to have a pretty good Christmas holiday. Her dad gave her lint rollers. Her mom gave her some nice bags for her cats. She hung out with Hugh Jackman and raised money for a good cause. But Swift was also thinking of her fans, and therefore she drew attention to this lovely cover of her “Blank Space” and “Style” by singer-songwriter Louisa Wendorff.

The mash-up, on which Wendorff duets with Devin Dawson, gives Swift’s pop songs a lovely acoustic aesthetic. Wendorff has given this treatment to other songs, combining the likes of Ed Sheeran’s “Kiss Me” and Beyoncé’s “XO,” for example. Her voice really shines on her mash-up of “Skinny Love,” “Ho Hey,” and “Riptide,” a song Swift also covered.
Wendorff has been, appropriately, freaking out on Twitter.
