Taylor Swift Releases New Album The Tortured Poets Department: Listen and Read the Full Credits

A shade over two months after announcing it at the 2024 Grammy Awards, Taylor Swift has released her new album, The Tortured Poets Department. The singer-songwriter’s follow-up to Midnights opens with the Post Malone collaboration “Fortnight” and features another star act, Florence and the Machine, on mid-album cut “Florida!!!” Swift also worked on her new album with her two go-to producers: Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff and the National’s Aaron Dessner. Listen to Taylor Swift’s new album, The Tortured Poets Department, below.

Swift plans to release the music video for “Fortnight” at 8 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Friday, April 19. “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,” Swift wrote online. “I got to witness that magic come to life firsthand when we worked together on Fortnight.”

In between Midnights and The Tortured Poets Department, Swift issued two re-recorded albums—Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) and 1989 (Taylor’s Version)—and began her world-conquering Eras Tour. She’s currently on a brief break from the tour, having last performed in Singapore in early March and not having a show scheduled until May 9 in France. The UK and European leg of the Eras Tour continues into August, and Swift returns to North America for more concerts in October. Meanwhile, her extremely successful concert film, Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour, is available online in standard and extended editions.
