As if surprising fans with a 31-track double album wasn’t enough, the multi-Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Taylor Swift shattered new records with the release of her 11th album, ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ .

Have you listened to all the songs from Taylor Swift’s latest album? Which track is your favorite so far? And who do you think is the muse behind those deeply personal lyrics?

Swifties and non-Swifties went into a frenzy after the release of 31 TTPD album tracks. Taylor Swift later revealed it as a secret double album.

As Miss Americana captions in her Instagram post: “I’d written so much tortured poetry in the past years and wanted to share it all with you. So, here’s the second installment of TTPD. The Anthology. 15 extra songs. And now the story isn’t mine anymore… it’s all yours.”

Here’s Everything You Need to Know About Taylor Swift ‘The Tortured Poets Department’

Taylor Swift, a natural-born storyteller, enchants listeners with her poignant lyrics, exploring themes from unrequited love to deep affection. By giving voice to overlooked emotions, she resonates deeply, making her a beloved figure in music.

Taylor Swift’s 11th studio album mesmerized fans and music enthusiasts with her continued evolution, featuring raw, emotional depth. In particular, her collaborations with Jack Antonoff and Aaron Dessner, songwriting and producing partners from the Folklore and Midnights albums, stood out. Together, they drew inspiration from years-long relationships and whirlwind romances, creating an intimate and powerful collection of songs.

And just like her sold-out concerts, The Tortured Poets Department has racked up massive numbers despite mixed reviews from critics and fans. In just the first three days after its release, the album has sold 1.6 million copies across various formats—including digital downloads, CDs, vinyl, and cassettes. And that’s only from April 19 to 21, marking Taylor’s biggest sales week for an album yet.

Moreover, collaborating with Post Malone and Florence + The Machine on the tracks Forthnight and Florida!!! has infused the album with fresh magic and innovative melodies. In the “Forthnight” music video, Post Malone made a striking transformation, covering all his tattoos to play Taylor Swift’s lover. The song, a lead single, has already amassed over 50 million streams on Spotify and 32 million views on YouTube.

In addition to her musical prowess, Taylor Swift has sparked a vinyl revival, with fans eagerly collecting them. With The Tortured Poets Department, she set a new record for the largest sales week for a vinyl album in the modern era, selling 700,000 copies in its first week, narrowly beating the 693,000 copies of 1989 (Taylor’s Version).

Additionally, the album’s 31 tracks (available in its deluxe streaming and digital editions) amassed 490.2 million on-demand streams in just three days, marking the largest streaming week of any album in 2024. This achievement surpasses any album since Drake’s For All the Dogs, which debuted with 514 million streams.

With such remarkable influence and artistry, what do you think the future holds for Taylor Swift? As she continues to break records and redefine industry standards, her trajectory seems poised for even greater heights.

How will she surprise us next? That’d be interesting to find out.
