Do we know any of the lyrics?

We don’t know all the lyrics just yet, but when posting the album’s artwork on her Instagram, Taylor gave us a clue in her caption. “Old habits die screaming”, she wrote underneath, which fans think is likely to be a lyric from the new record. 

She also shared a post and wrote what looks to be some more words from one of the songs: “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. All’s fair in love and poetry… Sincerely, The Chairman of The Tortured Poets Department.”

Florence and The Machine performing

Yes, US rapper Post Malone and UK indie artist Florence + The Machine are said to be featured on songs in the album. Woah – that’s an exciting collaboration. 

How does Taylor feel about the new album?

When talking about the forthcoming album Taylor said that the album had been soothing to write, and that songwriting was something that “gets [her] through my life”.

“I’ve never had an album where I needed songwriting more than I needed it on Tortured Poets,” she added. 

We can’t wait to listen and see how these tracks feature in her upcoming Eras tour!
