At the 2024 Grammy Awards, Taylor Swift celebrated her Best Pop Vocal Album win for Midnights by announcing a new album. During her acceptance speech she said, “This is my 13th Grammy.”

She continued, “I want to say thank you to the members of the Recording Academy for voting this way, but I know that the way that the Recording Academy voted is a direct reflection of the passion of the fans. So I want to 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 19.”

Here’s everything we know about the new project.

What’s The Album Called?

The album will reportedly be titled The Tortured Poets Department and is set to be released on April 19, as mentioned above.

Album Cover

Swift shared the album cover on Instagram, which features Taylor on a bed, though her face is obscured. The image is also in black and white. Check out the post here. The caption reads, “All’s fair in love and poetry… New album THE TORTURED POETS DEPARTMENT. Out April 19.”

Easter Eggs

As is always the case with Taylor, the artist accompanied the announcement with a number of Easter eggs that offered hints about the new project. These riddles took the internet by storm and sent Swifties into a frenzy.

Fans discovered hidden meanings in the error message on her website. A jumbled word read “hneriergrd,” which is an anagram for “red herring.” Underneath that was another message: “DPT: 321.” Fans interpreted this hint as the album title backward, 1, 2, 3: TDP (“Tortured Poets Department”).

Tracklist

The album includes 16 songs and one bonus track title called “The Manuscript,” according to Swift’s website.

Album Themes

Swift has also teased some of the lyrics on social media, including the album’s tagline: “All’s fair in love and poetry.”
