Ahead of her Eras Tour kickoff on March 17, Taylor Swift surprised fans and drop four previously unreleased tracks. Along with new re-recordings of her 2011 Hunger Games soundtrack cuts “Eyes Open” and “Safe & Sound,” and a “Taylor’s Version” of Speak Now bonus track “If This Was a Movie,” the batch of deep cuts also includes a new song called “All Of The Girls You Loved Before.” Originally written during the recording sessions for Swift’s 2019 album Lover, the track ultimately didn’t make the cut for her seventh studio album.

Like much of Lover, Swifties quickly theorized that “All Of The Girls” was written about her romance with boyfriend Joe Alwyn, joining tracks with specific references to Alwyn like “London Boy” and “Cornelia Street.” Co-written by Drake producer Frank Dukes and Miley Cyrus collaborator Louis Bell, the song sees Swift thanking the exes who collectively helped make her partner the man he is today. She also alludes to the beginning of the pair’s relationship and their efforts to keep out of the public eye. with lyrics like “We’re sneakin’ out into town” seemingly matching up to reports that the couple spent the summer of 2017 secretly lying low at Cara Delevingne’s house.

However, the song now has new context given what fans didn’t realize was happening behind the scenes. On April 8, it was reported that Swift and Alwyn had broken up after more than six years of dating, with a source telling Entertainment Tonight that their separation “was not dramatic” and actually happened several weeks prior. This means that “All Of The Girls,” a love song undoubtably written about Alwyn, only came out after their split, making its release very bittersweet.

The official release comes after a group of Swifties banded together earlier this year to “buy” a leak of “All Of The Girls You Loved Before” on the social media platform Discord. Collectively, they raised $2,600 (£2,144) before the server mysteriously went private, and shortly afterwards, various Swift tracks started leaking. Understandably, Swifties are elated that there’s now an official release, and agreed was Alwyn was a lucky man to have songs like this written about him.

Even if Swift and Alwyn are no longer together, “All Of The Girls You Loved Before” is a testament to the strength of their relationship.
