Gracie Abrams Unveils ‘The Secret of Us’ Tracklist Featuring Taylor Swift Collaboration

You may have thought that Gracie Abrams achieved the ultimate Swiftie dream when she and Taylor Swift performed a duet together on The Eras Tour last year. But now, the rising star has undoubtedly trumped it by announcing that her sophomore album, The Secret of Us, features the “Anti-Hero” singer on a song, which Abrams revealed by sharing the LP’s tracklist on Instagram Monday (May 13).

In total, the June 21-slated record features 12 main tracks — including the previously released lead single “Risk” — plus a bonus song titled “Close to You,” a snippet of which went viral on TikTok this year. Track No. 5, however, undoubtedly holds the most intrigue, simply titled “Us” with “feat. Taylor Swift” in parentheses next to it.

“screaming so loud………….,” the “21” singer wrote in her caption.

Abrams previously joined Swift as an opener on the Eras Tour last summer, a role she’ll reprise once the “Karma” singer returns to the States for a second North American leg this fall. In July, the former’s supporting set at a Cincinnati show was canceled due to weather delays, after which the pop superstar invited her to sing a duet of “I Miss You, I’m Sorry” during the main set’s nightly surprise song section — during which Abrams “blacked out,” she recently told Jimmy Fallon.

Swift was also one of the first people Abrams texted when she received her first-ever Grammy nomination last year for best new artist. “I talked to Taylor and we were just screaming at each other over text like, lots of all-caps: Holy f–king s–t,” she told Billboard in November. “And obviously she just deserves all of it, all of it, all of it. In moments of career celebration or any personal crisis, I text her, so to be able to celebrate this one mutually felt so wild.”

The “Fortnight” artist is the only collaborator listed on album, which was produced by Aaron Dessner, who also worked on Abrams’ debut record Good Riddance and Swift’s Folklore, Evermore and The Tortured Poets Department. Other titles on The Secret of Us include “Felt Good About You,” “Blowing Smoke,” “Let It Happen” and more.

Abrams first announced the new project on April 29, writing, “the album that I made with some of my favorite people (!!!!!!!!!!) is yours JUNE 21 and the first single 💛RISK💛 comes out on MAY 1! We had real, true fun writing this album. There were also the occasional tears.”
