The Tortured Poets Department: Taylor Swift’s Eleventh Studio Album

At the 66th Annual Grammy Awards, Taylor Swift won her fourth Album of the Year Award for her 2022 album Midnights. While accepting the award, she announced her new album The Tortured Poets Department, which is set to release on April 19th.

This album announcement came as a complete shock to fans, who were expecting her to announce the release of her version of the album Reputation. Fans noticed she changed her social media profile pictures to black and white, half of the color scheme associated with Reputation as well as has started to wear red carpet outfits that gave “rep” as described by fans. However, looking at the TPD cover, the black and white theme seems to also apply to this album.

While looking at the track list, fans have already begun to theorize what the “vibe” of the album is going to be. With the 5th track being called “So Long, London,” it has been explained by fans to be a break-up song dedicated to Swift's split from long term boyfriend Joe Alwyn, as he is from the UK and has been associated with London before. On Swift’s album Lover, there is a song called London Boy, which is said to be about Alwyn. Other than the 5th track, fans are still trying to decipher what other tracks may be about.

While not much is known about this album just yet, Swift has released the current tracklist. There are 17 tracks (one being a bonus track) with two known features. The tracks are:
