Taylor Swift took the Grammy Awards stage by storm, not only collecting the prize for Best Pop Vocal Album for “Midnights” but also dropping a bombshell announcement about her upcoming 11th studio album. Live on stage, Swift expressed her gratitude to her fans and revealed the secret she had kept for the past two years: her new album, titled “The Tortured Poets Department,” is set to be released on April 19.
Swift later took to her social media accounts to share the album cover and wrote in the caption, “All’s fair in love and poetry,” signing off as the “Chairman of the Tortured Poets Department.” The album is slated to feature 16 tracks, with some editions including a bonus song titled “The Manuscript.” However, specific song titles remain undisclosed.
The upcoming record follows the tremendous success of “Midnights,” which sold 1.6 million copies in its first week in the US two years ago. “Midnights,” featuring hit singles like “Anti-Hero,” “Bejewelled,” and “Karma,” not only secured Swift the Best Pop Vocal Album award but also earned her Album of the Year at the Grammys, marking her fourth win in the category.
Swift’s announcement of a new album has sent shockwaves through her fan community, adding excitement to her blockbuster Eras tour scheduled for Europe this summer. The tour already promises an extensive three-hour performance, revisiting each of Swift’s previous 10 albums, and with the addition of “The Tortured Poets Department,” fans can anticipate a fresh set of songs to be featured in the upcoming concerts. The multifaceted artist continues to captivate audiences with her musical evolution and chart-topping achievements.
