All the pieces to Know About Taylor Swift’s New Album The Tortured Poet’s Division

Swifties, this is not a drill. Mother Taylor Swift has officially announced that her 11th studio album, The Tortured Poets Department will launch on April 19th.

It would appear that Camp Swift is abuzz with much anticipation, and not just because of the Grammys that were held just earlier today. While gracing the red carpet at the Arena, the 34-year-old mega-pop star’s social media accounts erupted in a hive of activity after an unexpected, but no less highly-anticipated announcement was made.

The Tortured Poets Department announced at Grammys

Nominated for six awards during the 66th iteration of the music industry’s most recognizable accolades, Pennsylvania-born Taylor Swift was already up for a historic win. On bagging Album of The Year honour, she made history making her the first person to win four awards in this category — beating out Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, and Paul Simon, who are all tied with three awards. Swift bagged the award for her 10th album, Midnights.

While her 2022 album continues to make waves, the singer-songwriter is fast moving on to her next project. Taking the stage to accept her award for Best Pop Vocal Album, Swift, dressed in a cinched ivory Schiaparelli Couture dress paired with black contrasting opera gloves, dropped the bomb that her next studio album release will be slated to take place on April 19th.

“So I want to say thank you to the fans by telling you a secret that I have been keeping from you for the last two years, which is that my brand-new album comes out April 19th. It’s called ‘The Tortured Poets Department.’ ” she said, adding “I’m going to go and post the cover right now backstage. Thank you, I love you! Thank you!”

The now-viral post on Instagram reveals her next album’s cover, tastefully lensed by Beth Garrabrant in greyscale, which appears to feature Swift laying on pillows dressed in a sheer top and black shorts with the album’s title on the topmost edge.

A second image included shows a handwritten note that is indicative of song lyrics, which read “And so I enter into evidence, My tarnished coat of arms, My muses, acquired like bruises, My talismans and charms, The tick, tick, tick of love bombs, My veins of pitch-black ink, All’s fair in love and poetry…”, suitably signed off with “Sincerely, The Chairman of the Tortured Poets Department.” The album pre-order is already live on her site.
