Taylor Swift Allows Song To Be Used In Political Ad For First Time

Taylor Swift‘s song “Only the Young” features in a new political ad released by Remedy PAC, fronted by Rep. Eric Swalwell.

The television ad, urging young voters to go out and cast their ballots on November 3, opens with a quote from Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden‘s running mate Kamala Harris, wondering why so many powerful people are making it so difficult to vote.

The Democratic Senator from California expressed her gratitude to the 30-year-old Grammy Award-winner on Twitter for lending her voice.

“Up there’s the finish line. Our future is worth our fight. Thank you, @taylorswift13, for voicing what #OnlyTheYoung can do. Let’s run,” Harris tweeted.

Soundtrack from Swift’s documentary Miss Americana also is used in the video.

Swift, a critic of President Donald Trump, had already endorsed Joe Biden for President and called on her fans to vote for Kamala Harris.

Swift had largely stayed out of politics before 2018 but has become more vocal about her political views since then.
