Taylor Swift Shares Eclipse-Themed Lyrics Ahead of ‘Tortured Poets Department’

The pop star shared the line on the same day as the total solar eclipse in the United States.

Taylor Swift will stare directly at the sun, but never in the mirror — so let’s just hope she uses protective glasses.

The “Anti-Hero” singer aptly shared a what appears to be an eclipse-themed lyric from her upcoming new album The Tortured Poets Department on Monday (April 8), the same day the moon fully obscured the sun from Earth’s view for the first time in three years.

In a video posted to Swift’s Instagram Story, an unseen writer hammers the following message onto typewriter paper: “Crowd goes wild at her fingertips. Half moonshine, full eclipse.”

It’s probably safe to assume that the line was taken from one of the 16 tracks on Tortured Poets, or one of the four bonus songs set to appear on Swift’s deluxe variants of the album. It’s only fitting that she unveiled the lyric on the day of the 2024 total solar eclipse, a celestial phenomenon that last occurred in 2021 and won’t happen again — at least in a way that’s visible from the United States — until 2044.


The post comes less than two weeks prior to Tortured Poets‘ April 19 release date. Other than the cover art and track list, it marks the first taste of the record the 14-time Grammy winner has shared.


Swift first announced her 11th studio album at the 2024 Grammys while accepting the best pop vocal prize for Midnights, later confirming that both Post Malone and Florence + The Machine will make guest appearances on the project. She’s currently nearing the end of a two-month break from her global Eras Tour as she gears up to drop Tortured Poets, after which she’ll resume her trek with four shows in Paris slated for mid-May.
