Taylor Swift’s new album: “The Tortured Poets Department”


For Taylor Swift fans, there can be nothing more exciting than a new album coming out. Fans are always eager to hear about any news from Taylor about her upcoming songs and albums. So naturally, it was exciting when, at the 2024 Grammys, Taylor Swift herself dropped the news during her acceptance speech that her new album, The Tortured Poets Department, is arriving this year.  Fans are excitedly awaiting Swift’s newest musical project and are prepared to analyze its themes and lyrics, considering the artist’s personal experiences.

Here is everything you need to know about the new release:


When is it coming?  

As Swift revealed at her Grammys speech, the album arrives on Friday, April 19!  

The cover

Swift released the black-and-white album cover shortly after the album’s release announcement. It features her lying down on white bedding, wrapped in her arms in a black top and shorts. Her face is partially obscured, much like on the original 1989 cover.  





There will be 16 songs on The Tortured Poets Department in addition to a bonus track called “The Manuscript.” Some of the most intriguing titles are “So Long, London”, “But Daddy, I Love Him”, “Guilty as Sin?” “Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me?” “I Can Fix Him (No Really, I Can),” “The Alchemy,” and “Clara Bow.”  

Who appears on the latest album by Taylor Swift?  

 The opening song, “Fortnight,” features Post Malone, and Florence and the Machine is featured in “Florida!!!”  

Fan Theories 

Fans of Swift started searching online for explanations and hints behind the information she provided after her announcement. Some people on the internet claim that the album’s title alludes to her breakup with Joe Alwyn. Alwyn disclosed that he was a member of a group chat known as “The Tortured Man Club” with Paul Mescal and actor Andrew Scott in 2022 during their Actors-on-Actors interview.  Some fans have also speculated that the track “So Long, London” could be about the couple’s breakup because Alwyn is English.  


Without a doubt, fans’ enthusiasm has been sparked by Taylor Swift’s new album. Many are eager to enjoy the album’s global streaming, with just a few days left until its formal release. With so many theories and exciting collars, the album is sure to be an exciting listen!
