The Album of the Year award winner made a surprise announcement during her acceptance speech.

As if making a historic win at the Grammys was not enough, Taylor Swift surprised both the audience and fans with the announcement of the impending arrival of her 11th studio album. Set for release on April 19, The Tortured Poets Department comes with 16 songs and one bonus track, including collaborations with Post Malone and Florence + The Machine.

The American pop star, who won her 13th Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album for Midnights, thanked her fans for their support and said that she wanted to repay them by telling a secret that she has been keeping for two years. “Okay, this is my 13th Grammy, which is my lucky number. I don’t know if I’ve ever told you that. So, I wanna say thank you to the fans by telling you a secret that I’ve been keeping from you for the last two years, which is that my brand-new album comes out April 19th.”

Everything You Need to Know About ‘The Tortured Poets Department’

True to her promise, Taylor Swift took to social media after exiting the stage, unveiling the details of her forthcoming album, The Tortured Poets Department. Alongside the cover art, adorned with the tagline “All’s fair in love and poetry,” Swift ignited a frenzy among Swifties, who had initially anticipated an announcement regarding the re-recording of Reputation (Taylor’s Version).

The new LP, which is rumored to reference “the Tortured Man Club”—a group chat between Andrew Scott, Paul Mescal, and her ex-boyfriend Joe Alwyn—comes with 16 songs and one bonus track titled The Manuscript. This includes songs in collaboration with Post Malone and Florence + The Machine.

Following a temporary outage just before the Grammys, during which a perplexing error code “hneriergrd” appeared on screens, Taylor Swift’s website resurfaced, revealing details about her new album along with a pre-order link. Apart from the track list available on vinyl, CD, and cassette editions, fans can also get the collectible 24-page book-bound jacket that includes three handwritten lyrics and exclusive, never-before-seen photographs.

The Tortured Poets Department tracklist is as follows: (Side A) Fortnight (featuring Post Malone), The Tortured Poets Department, My Boy Only Breaks His Favorite Toys, Down Bad; (Side B) So Long, London, But Daddy I Love Him, Fresh Out the Summer, Florida!!! (featuring Florence + the Machine); (Side C) Guilty as Sin?, Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me?, I Can Fix Him (No Really I Can), loml; (Side D) I Can Do It With a Broken Heart, The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived, The Alchemy, Clara Bow, and bonus track: The Manuscript.

Currently holding the record as the woman with the most No. 1 albums in history, Taylor Swift has surpassed the previous record set by Barbra Streisand, who held 11 No. 1 albums. As anticipation builds for the release of The Tortured Poets Department, Swifties eagerly await the next milestones from the multi-hyphenated singer. Will it be another award? Another record-breaking concert? Your guess is as good as ours. Don’t miss the album’s release on April 19!
