Despite their gradual shift toward more public outings and occasional social media posts, Swift and Alwyn have maintained their commitment to keeping their relationship private.

Joe Alwyn also contributed to the album under the pseudonym William Bowery, co-writing the song “Exile.”This collaboration further solidified their partnership, both personally and professionally.
