Update: Taylor Swift Reveals New Album Track Listing
Taylor Swift has shared the lineup of tracks for her upcoming album, "The Tortured Poets Department," set to be released on April 19th under Republic Records. This 17-track offering includes an additional song, "The Manuscript," and features collaborations with Post Malone on "Fortnight" and Florence + the Machine on "Florida!!!." Dive into the specifics below as we recover from our Grammy festivities.
Utilizing the Grammy Awards as her platform, Taylor Swift announced the release of "The Tortured Poets Department" for April 19th via Republic Records. She made this announcement while receiving the award for Best Pop Vocal Album for "Midnights," a nomination among six others she was contending for that evening.
Describing the excitement of Swift's fans as merely enthusiastic would be an understatement, akin to suggesting it merely drizzled in Los Angeles today.
Swift took to Instagram to share the album's cover, accompanied by handwritten lyrics from a yet-to-be-named new track, signed off as "The Chairman" of the Tortured Poets Department: “I hereby submit for consideration/ My worn and weathered coat of arms/ My muses, embraced like battle scars/ My guardians and lucky charms/ The steady beat of love's alarms/ My veins filled with dark, thick ink/ In love and poetry, everything is fair.”
While specific details on collaborators remain under wraps, pre-order options hint at select editions featuring a bonus track, "The Manuscript."
Continuing to dominate the charts, Swift currently holds three spots in the Top 10 of the HITS Top 50 with her "Taylor's Version" albums—1989 and Lover at positions #5 and #8, respectively, and Midnights at #9. Her groundbreaking Eras Tour is set to continue on February 7th in Tokyo.
