"cardigan" is a song recorded by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. It was released as the lead single of her eighth studio album "folklore", which was surprise-released on July 24, 2020, through Republic Records. Swift co-wrote the song with its producer Aaron Dessner. "Cardigan" is a slow-burning folk, soft rock and indie rock ballad with stripped-down instrumentals of tender piano, clopping drums and melancholic violins. Lyrically, it sees Swift singing about a comforting romance lost in memories, from the perspective of a woman named Betty, one of the several fictitious characters narrated in "folklore".
The song received critical acclaim, with praise towards the poetic songwriting and laid-back sound. It received nominations for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards. Upon release, "Cardigan" debuted at number one on the global Spotify songs chart, receiving over 7.742 million streams, garnering the biggest opening-day for a song by a female artist in 2020. An accompanying music video for the song—written, directed, and styled by Swift—was released alongside the album launch. The dreamy video presents a cottage-core aesthetic and features Swift in three different settings: a cozy cabin in the woods, a magical moss-covered forest and a dark stormy sea, representing different phases of a relationship and her career simultaneously. With the song's debut at the number-one spot of the Billboard Hot 100, Swift scored her sixth number-one single in the United States.
