The Tortured Poets Department

Slow songs, masterful lyrics, and a synth beat.
After long anticipation, a transportation into Taylor Swift’s life has been released for the first time since her Midnights album back in 2022.
The Tortured Poets Department is Swift’s 11th studio album and surprised Swifties with a “double album” drop with a total of 31 songs.
The album has insinuations and jabs at Swift’s most recent breakups and boyfriends, like Songwriter Matt Healy and British Actor Joe Alwyn.
There are 16 songs on the original album with immediate favorites like “Guilty as Sin?” and “Down Bad.”
The mix of love, grief, and references to specific people throughout the album is easy for Swifties to pick up on.
Big features also include Post Malone on the first song “Fortnight” and Florence + The Machine on track number 8, titled “Florida!!!”
An album that had deep meaning behind the melody yet a bit of Swift’s staple pop touch to this album is amazing for many moods.
TTPD has songs that make you feel like you are dancing by yourself even when you aren’t dancing. There is a personal feeling that listeners can connect to in their own ways in the lyrics that help to really get into the songs.
Swifties are going crazy over all of the iconic “Easter Eggs.”
The TTPD pop up in Los Angeles through many Swifties through a loop with missing keys on a typewriter and certain amounts of open drawers.
Swift is known to drop these eggs in posts and music videos to decipher all of the album’s roots.
The musical icon does an excellent job at crafting the album to the point that listeners can enjoy every song like it is their favorite.
Of course, her talent for creating music is apparent with the popularity of her massive tours and record-breaking music drops
While the stigma is inescapable, about the Grammy Winner in the media with much hate and many wondering if TTPD is that good?
Many have argued that the lyrics are somewhat odd and the album was a flop, yet the Swifties are in hardcore support for the album.
She is working hard in the music industry and making her legacy for others to find inspiration from now and into the future.
The Tortured Poets Department has been streaming anywhere you can find music since April 19th.
