Taylor Swift's Shares New 'Tortured Poets Department' Lyrics: Everything We Know About Album

The pop star timed up the release of the lyrics to Monday’s eclipse.

Taylor Swift is only cryptic and machiavellian because she cares.

On Monday, the 34-year-old singer perfectly timed up her Instagram Story — complete with a link to download her upcoming 11th studio album, The Tortured Poets Society — with the solar eclipse to reveal one of the first lyrics from the highly anticipated April 19 release.

In the video, a typewriter is seen with its keys typing out the words to the unidentified song, revealing three lines, including one with an on-the-nose reference to Monday’s activity in the sky.

“Crowd goes wild at her fingertips / Half moonshine, Full eclipse,” the sheet of paper reveals.

The Instagram Story comes as Swift is in the midst of the European leg of her record-breaking Eras Tour and less than two weeks out from the album’s drop.

As Swifties eagerly await the new drop, here’s everything she’s revealed about the project (so far). We’ll continue to monitor as the new updates roll in.

Swift dropped the news of her impending release onstage at the GRAMMYs on Feb. 4 while accepting her 13th trophy from the Recording Academy. The announcement came amid ongoing red herrings from the star, who many fans believed had been hinting at an imminent Reputation (Taylor’s Version) drop.

“OK, this is my 13th GRAMMY, which is my lucky number. I don’t know if I’ve ever told you that,” Swift quipped while accepting the Best Pop Vocal Album award for her last original album, Midnights. “I want to say thank you to the members of the Recording Academy for voting this way, but I know that the way that the Recording Academy voted is a direct reflection of the passion of the fans.”

Swift continued, “I want to say thank you to the fans by telling you a secret that I have been keeping from you for the last two years, which is that my brand new album comes out April 19th. It’s called The Tortured Poets Department. I’m gonna go post the cover right now backstage. Thank you, I love you.”

Moments later, Swift took to social media to share the main cover image for the album.

Shot by Beth Garrabrant, the black-and-white pic shows Swift lying on a bed, surrounded by pillows. The second slide of her Instagram post featured a handwritten page of what appeared to be lyrics, which read, “And so I enter into evidence / My tarnished coat of arms / My muses, acquired like bruises / My talismans and charms / The tick, tick, tick of love bombs / My veins of pitch black ink.”

At the bottom of the page, Swift wrote, “All’s fair in love and poetry – sincerely, The Chairman of The Tortured Poets Department.”

It was the first of four covers to be unveiled. On the album’s back cover, the songstress looks forlorn as she rests her head on her hand. Text splashed across the image reads, “I love you, it’s ruining my life.”

The first edition is labeled “The Manuscript,” as a reflection of the album’s bonus track title. Swift has gone on to share additional versions of the LP including bonus tracks called “The Bolter,” “The Albatross” and “The Black Dog.” Each one features a cohesive black and white or sepia toned aesthetic.
