After the songstress revealed the much-sought-after fan-favorite track on streaming services, Atonoff shared an image about the creative process behind the song.
In the photo Swift, can be seen standing in the kitchen with a bottle of wine and a handful of raisins. The singer’s hair is also pulled back in a messy low bun as she wears a brown sweater with pants looking down at the kitchen island.
“‘You’re Losing Me’ is out today,” Antonoff wrote over the shot. “A very special track from the Midnights sessions that’s finally streaming! Written and recorded at home on 12/5/21 right after Taylor ate these raisins.”
Fans online flew into a frenzy trying to decode the information, with many speculating that the timeline of the song could have been when Swift was still with then-boyfriend Joe Alwyn
As What’s Trending reported previously, Swift and Alwyn officially called it quits this past March after six years of dating.
“You say, ‘I don’t understand,’ and I say, ‘I know you don’t’ / We thought a cure would come through in time, now, I fear it won’t,” Swift sings on the sad song. “Remember lookin’ at this room, we loved it ’cause of the light / Now, I just sit in the dark and wonder if it’s time.”
She continues, “Do I throw out everything we built or keep it? / I’m getting tired even for a phoenix / Always risin’ from the ashes / Mendin’ all her gashes / You might just have dealt the final blow.”
On the chorus, she declares: “Stop, you’re losin’ me / I can’t find a pulse / My heart won’t start anymore / For you / ‘Cause you’re losin’ me.”
One fan hailed Antonoff’s timeline tidbit as “the greatest gossip of all time,” while another joked that he was “never letting Joe Alwyn have another peaceful day in his life.” Several fans raved that his post was “so messy” (in a good way).
“You’re Losing Me,” co-written by Swift and Antonoff, was initially featured exclusively on the Late Night Edition of Swift’s 2022 album, Midnights, and in a digital version available only on her web store. On Wednesday, Swift opted to make it available for streaming in celebration of her recent recognition as Spotify’s Global Top Artist of 2023.
Taylor posted on Instagram, “Um OK this is unreal?? I just wanted to say to anyone who listened to my music this year, anywhere in the world, thank you. Getting named Spotify’s Global Top Artist in 2023 is truly the best birthday/holiday gift you could’ve given me. So I was trying to think of a way to thank you, and a lot of you have been asking me to put ‘You’re Losing Me (From The Vault)’ on streaming… so here you go! You can finally listen EVERYWHERE now.”
In honor of Swift’s upcoming birthday, the pop star will be making her Eras Tour concert documentary available to rent via VOD.
In the meantime, Swift and Kelce have been the couple taking their relationship to new heights.
A source told ET on Wednesday, “Things between Travis and Taylor are going really well. Their relationship is progressing in a great way. Taylor is planning to spend a lot more time at Travis’ house in Kansas City while she is on a break from touring.”
The source continued, “They’re both very excited to be together, and Travis is making sure that Taylor feels comfortable and at home. They have mutual respect and admiration for one another, and their feelings for each other are sincere.”
