"They’re going to see all sorts of treasure troves of little bits and bobs kind of sprinkled throughout. It’s up to them to interpret that however they want. But what’s most important is that each day lyrics are being revealed. So this morning we kicked off our opening, with one lyric. We had another lyric this afternoon. So really exciting for fans. You know, we’ve done lyric reveals with Taylor in the past and, you know, any piece of information that you can give fans that they latch on to, really goes a long way. So, they’re really just here to immerse themselves and, get a deeper dive into what they can expect for the album."

"She revealed, a lyric of one of her songs. We don’t know which one yet, so it’s like a mystery. We have to try to figure it out and, like little clues, like little mailboxes and like it just like you have to, like, really look in deep, depth with it."

STORYLINE:
Taylor Swift fans took over the Grove in Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon to celebrate Swift’s upcoming album, ‘The Tortured Poets Department.’

To build anticipation around the album, Spotify hosted an installation at the outdoor shopping plaza where fans were able to look for clues hidden in mailboxes and books, take portraits and hang out with their fellow Swifties.

"They’re going to see all sorts of treasure troves of little bits and bobs kind of sprinkled throughout. It’s up to them to interpret that however they want," said Spotify Label Partnerships Manager Taryn Lacroix. "But what’s most important is that each day lyrics are being revealed. So this morning we kicked off our opening, with one lyric. We had another lyric this afternoon. So really exciting for fans."

The installation will be on display for three days from 10am to 9pm and Lacroix says the streaming service anticipates over 3000 fans to show up.
