“I’m gonna do one that I’ve never played live before,” Swift said on stage in Amsterdam last Friday (July 5) before debuting the song during her acoustic set at Johan Cruyff Arena.

The song, taken from Swift’s latest album, ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ appeared within a mid-gig medley of songs that also featured ‘Reputation’ song ‘Dress’. After that, Swift followed with ‘You Are In Love’ from ‘1989’ which segued into ‘Cowboy Like Me’ from ‘Evermore’.

Last month, Patti Smith referenced her namecheck from Swift’s ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ on stage in Dublin.

The New York punk legend was playing in the city’s Vicar Street venue on June 28 when she alluded to her connection to the title track of one of the year’s most successful records.

On the song in question, released in April, Swift makes a specific reference to Smith, as well as Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, and the iconic bohemian hotspot, Manhattan’s Chelsea Hotel.

“I laughed in your face and said, ‘You’re not Dylan Thomas, I’m not Patti Smith / This ain’t the Chelsea Hotel / We’re modern idiots’,” she sings, in what is widely thought to be an allusion to her short-lived relationship with The 1975‘s Matty Healy.

Now, Smith has brought the reference full circle. As seen in fan-captured footage from the Dublin show, Smith said: “Well, I’ve a small confession to make. I am no Dylan Thomas, but I AM Patti Smith!”, drawing huge cheers from the crowd.

Shortly after the song’s release, Smith responded with a social media post in which she is seen reading a book of Thomas’ poetry. “This is saying I was moved to be mentioned in the company of the great Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. Thank you Taylor,” she wrote.

Swift is not the only artist to have expressed her admiration for Smith in recent months. In May, Garbage’s Shirley Manson described her as “one of the touchstones in my life” who had inspired her “as a human being and as an artist”.
