Taylor Swift has included Irish musician Dermot Kennedy on a list of things she is currently obsessed with, hailing him as poetic.

Swift listed the "musicians, TV shows, movies, and authors she's currently fanning over" for Entertainment Weekly, with Lady Gaga, Fleabag, Britney Spears' laughter and our very own Dermot Kennedy making the cut.

"I think it’s very poetic what he says, you know," Swift said of the Power Over Me singer.

"Like he'll include the word 'reverie'. I'll be like, thank you Dermot Kennedy for saying reverie in a song in 2019. We need that."

It's not the first time Swift has shone a light on the Rathcoole star, with the singer adding Kennedy's song Boston to her playlist of favourite songs on Spotify in 2017.

Kennedy is currently playing a series of sold out shows in Dublin's Olympia Theatre this week.
