Taylor Swift joined fans celebrating the one-year release of 1989 with an acoustic performance of “Out of the Woods.” The singer tweeted a video of it to fans with the message, “Here’s something from me,” along with the trending hashtag “#HappyBirthday1989.” See the performance below.

Swift’s acoustic performance of “Out Of The Wood” took place on September 30 when she celebrated her attendance record-breaking exhibit at the Grammy Museum in Los Angles. Before she began to sing, Swift explained to the audience what inspired her to write the song. She said the song, rumored to be about her brief romance with Harry Styles, was about “the number one feeling I felt in the whole relationship was anxiety.”

“Because it felt very fragile, it felt very tentative, and it always felt like, okay, what’s the next road block?” she continued. “What’s the next thing that’s gonna deter this? …How long do we have until this turns into just an awful mess and we break up? Is it a month? Is it three days?”

While the relationship that inspired the single was obviously tumultuous, Swift doesn’t regret it, and noted that despite the anxiety, it was still very special. “So, you know, I think a lot of relationships can be very solid and that’s kind of what you hope for, solid and healthy, but that’s not always what you get. And it doesn’t mean that it’s not special and extraordinary just to have a relationship that’s fragile and somehow meaningful in the fragility.”
