Taylor Swift approved her song “Only the Young” for a pro-Joe Biden advertisement, a source close to the situation confirms to Variety.
The song, from the Netflix documentary “Taylor Swift: Miss Americana,” appears in a new Biden ad that made the rounds on social media on Friday, four days before the 2020 election. California’s Democratic representative Eric Swalwell shared the ad on Friday morning, quoting lyrics from the song.
The ad begins with a voiceover from Sen. Kamala Harris, Biden’s running mate, who asks “Why are so many powerful people trying to make it so difficult for us to vote?”
Up there’s the finish line.
Our future is worth our fight.
