Vance Joy's Version Of 'I Know Places' Is Taylor Swift's Favorite '1989' Cover Ever

05/05/2015 06:12 pm ET | Updated May 05, 2015

Vance Joy has earned the highest honor in all the land. Taylor Swift named his version of "I Know Places" as her favorite cover of "1989" songs. "I'm going to be bold enough to say this one is my favorite," she tweeted on Tuesday.

It's a softer, acoustic rendition of the track, sweet and somber, without any of Swift's pop production. Vance Joy, known mostly for his smash hit "Riptide," will be one of the openers on her "1989" tour this year, and shared the song on Facebook in preparation. "Feel lucky indeed," he wrote about the next few months. We bet he does after this endorsement.
