Taylor Swift teased fans in Tokyo with the announcement of performing two “brand new songs” during her ‘Eras Tour’ stop, leading fans to believe they were from her upcoming album.
Swift quickly clarified that the songs were not from her upcoming album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” but rather ones she had never performed live before.
At the 2024 Grammy Awards, Swift surprised fans by revealing her new album’s title, “The Tortured Poets Department,” and its release date, April 19th, after winning her 13th Grammy.
Swift released the track list for the upcoming album, sparking speculation among fans about songs possibly inspired by her ex-boyfriend, Joe Alwyn.
The track list includes titles like “Down Bad,” “But Daddy I Love Him,” and “So Long, London,” suggesting themes of heartbreak and personal struggles.
Swift’s relationship with Alwyn ended in April, and while details are scarce, it’s believed that the pandemic played a role in their breakup.
Swift has since been public about her relationship with NFL star Travis Kelce, in contrast to her more private relationship with Alwyn.
Swift is set to support Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs in Las Vegas on Feb. 11 before resuming her international tour in Australia on Feb. 16.
