Hear Taylor Swift's Brother Austin Cover 'LWYMMD' For 'Killing Eve' Episode

Fans think Taylor Swift’s brother is behind a newly-released cover of “Look What You Made Me Do.”
Swifties received the shock of their lives during Sunday’s (May 24) episode of Killing Eve when a never-before-heard rendition of the singer’s Reputation anthem played during the show. However, the voice behind the track remained a mystery up until a few days ago when Swift praised the cover on social media.
“VERY STOKED about this cover of lwymmd on @KillingEve by Jack leopards & the dolphin club!!” she tweeted. However, it didn’t take long before Swifties found out Jack Leopards & the Dolphin Club wasn’t actually a real band, leading followers down a digital rabbit hole.
Now, according to fandom conspiracy theories, the version appears to be performed by none other than Taylor’s own brother, Austin Swift. After some impressive sleuthing, fans discovered the song was co-written by the “Delicate” songbird’s longtime collaborator Jack Antonoff (who co-produced the original, too) and Nils Sjoberg, which, in case you forgot, was revealed to be Taylor’s ghostwriting alias. (This was confirmed in 2016 when Calvin Harrisand Rihanna’s “This Is What You Came For” released.)
Swifties figured out Austin as the mystery crooner because of the name “The Dolphin Club,” which was apparently one of Austin’s former Twitter username once upon at time. Not to mention, fans also noticed the artwork for the song featured a childhood photo of him.
Additionally, it was previously reported earlier this year that Taylor "begged" Killing Eve head writer and executive producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge, to let her brother sing a song on the BBC show's soundtrack years ago.
