YOUTHYEAR releases pop-punk version of Taylor Swift's "All Too Well"


All Too Well

Release: April 21, 2023

Review by Emmi Sollie

YOUTHYEAR is Nashville-based singer, songwriter and producer Eric Paquette. After teasing a 30 second clip over 6 months ago, he's finally releasing his version of Taylor Swift's All Too Well.


As a huge Swiftie, as well as being a "pop-punk kid", this cover is so exciting to me. The electric guitars and drums carry through the song, and YOUTHYEAR's voice blends perfectly. I love the build up before exploding into to the famous bridge. "And you call me up again just to break me like a promise. So casually cruel in the name of being honest (...)"

While Taylor Swift's original has a more soft and vulnerable feel to it, this version has a lot of attitude – classic pop-punk. Despite both telling the same story, they evoke different emotions. While Taylor makes you wanna silently sob alone in your room, YOUTHYEAR makes you wanna turn the volume to the max as you scream the lyrics with all of your friends.

YOUTHYEAR's All Too Well is being released ahead of the highly anticipated originals and an EP, written and produced with Carlo Colasacco (Shinedown, Jagwar Twin, ONE OK ROCK), as well as bringing in producer Pete Nappi (GAYLE, 5 Seconds of Summer, Thirty Seconds To Mars) for one of the tracks. The EP is set to release later in the year!

If you're excited for more music from YOUTHYEAR, you don't have to wait that long. He is dropping a collab with Sam Tinnesz on Friday May 5th!
