Taylor Swift has always been a musical genius, leaving easter eggs from one song to another and hinting at future songs in the back of lyrical combos of her years-old songs, for which she has received a lot of praise.
On the eve of the release of her tenth studio album, “Midnights,” Swift had everyone recalling and piecing together the lyrics of some of her new songs scattered worldwide.
According to Billboard, one of her new songs’ lyrics was hinted at earlier this year when her other songs’ lyrics were also famously quoted.
Taylor Swift received an honorary doctorate from New York University earlier this year, making her the commencement speaker for thousands of now-alumni.
Fans in Mexico City, where a newly erected billboard with her lyrics appeared, saw the connection – the lyrics printed on the signage were something familiar.
It turns out that the GRAMMY-winning singer mentioned the same lyrics, almost to the same degree, in her NYU commencement speech.
“I’m a doctor now, so I know how breathing works”
At the time, it must have been a silly, witty joke, but the many Swifties listening didn’t know that somewhere along those words were actually a future reference to her upcoming music.
However, according to the publication, that was not the only thing she mentioned during the speech used on the new album.
At the end of her lengthy speech, Swift said something along the lines of:
“Scary news is, you’re on your own now. Cool news is, you’re on your own now.”
For those still confused, it references her new song, “You’re on Your Own, Kid,” which is also included on the “Midnights” album.
Meanwhile, various posters have been placed worldwide as part of the singer’s partnership with Spotify. This includes billboards in New York City, Sao Paolo, Brazil, London, and Nashville, where lyrics to her upcoming songs were revealed.
“Midnights,” Taylor Swift’s new album, is set to be released on October 21, 2022.
