Taylor Swift’s new song, Clara Bow, named after the 1920s actress, received reactions of Bow’s relatives.

According to PEOPLE, followed by the release of The Tortured Poets Department on April 19, 2024, the outlet exclusively spoke to Bow’s great-grand daughters, Nicole Sisneros and Brittany Grace Bell

Both the women, who are granddaughters of Bow’s son, Rex Bell Jr., spoke about the closing track after listening to it.

Sisneros admitted that she immediately had “chills” after listening to the song for the first time noting that the track “poetically draws parallels between Clara Bow and Taylor.”

“Both raw and amazingly talented artists,” Sisneros said, referring to the two artists.

“My family and I love the song and are thankful for Taylor connecting with Clara’s legacy through her songwriting,” she added.

As for Bell, the lyric that stuck with her was “This town is fake, but you're the real thing,” to which she expressed her belief over “how Clara Bow was unapologetically herself despite the media noise in Hollywood and societal norms of the 1920s and 1930s.”

“The song to me feels ethereal and somewhat melancholy,” Bell stated.

Taylor Swift released her eleventh studio album, The Tortured Poets Department, on April 19, 2024, which she announced at the Annual Grammy Awards this year in February.
