NPR Music's Tiny Desk Concert series has featured some notable performers lately, including Brittany Howard, Charly Bliss, Sharon Van Etten, Nilüfer Yanya, and Lizzo, but now they may have landed their biggest performer yet: pop superstar Taylor Swift. While you might not expect someone like Swift to perform a stripped down set recorded at the desk of Bob Boilen, the host of NPR's All Songs Considered, at the start of her set Swift admits: "Tiny Desk is like one of my favorite corners of the Internet." Swift may not be the latest indie rock darling, but she writes all of her songs acoustically and was eager to perform them that way. "It's just me. There's no dancers unfortunately," Swift jokes. She performed four songs "The Man," "Lover," "Death by a Thousand Cuts," and "All Too Well." The first three are from her recently released album Lover, and "All Too Well" is from her 2012 album Red. Watch the session below.

At the start of the set Swift joked: "It's great to be in D.C. You guys had anything exciting going on in the last couple of weeks? Or any possible changes in play?" Of course she was referencing the impeachment inquiry into President Trump. She performed on guitar and piano to a packed audience at NPR's offices, including some young kids who were excited to see their idol.
