Taylor Swift just dropped her new album and everyone will agree that she mothered hard this time!

With 16 songs in total, the 34-year-old American singer-songwriter referred to the album 'The Tortured Poets Department' as "an anthology of new works that reflect events, opinions and sentiments from a fleeting and fatalistic moment in time - one that was both sensational and sorrowful in equal measure."

"This period of the author’s life is now over, the chapter closed and boarded up. There is nothing to avenge, no scores to settle once wounds have healed. And upon further reflection, a good number of them turned out to be self-inflicted," Taylor wrote.

"This writer is of the firm belief that our tears become holy in the form of ink on a page. Once we have spoken our saddest story, we can be free of it. And then all that’s left behind is the tortured poetry."


The first single in the album 'Fortnight" features Post Malone. It's music video will be coming out at 8 p.m. ET, or 8 a.m. on April 20 in the Philippines.

"I’ve been such a huge fan of Post because of the writer he is, his musical experimentation and those melodies he creates that just stick in your head forever. I got to witness that magic come to life firsthand when we worked together on Fortnight," Taylor said in a post.


Just shortly after its release, Swifties all over the world shared on social media platform X (formerly Twitter) their emotions as they began to realize the hidden messages behind every songs in the new album.

Swift first announced the news of her new album onstage at the GRAMMYs while accepting her 13th trophy from the Recording Academy in February.
