Taylor Swift just won her latest Grammy (#13 to be specific) — but the bigger news came in what she said during her acceptance speech … namely, announcing a brand new album.
The singer was announced as the winner for Best Pop Vocal Album for ‘Midnights’ Sunday nigh — and TayTay went up there to accept her hardware … like we said, this marks her 13th Grammy statuette, something she made a note of right from the get-go at the mic.
Taylor then started teasing some major news — which got the crowd whipped up into a frenzy. Eventually, she let the cat out of the bag … T-Swift has a new project coming soon.
She says the forthcoming album — one she says she’s been working on in secret for the past two years, unbeknownst to her fans — is called ‘The Tortured Poets Department,’ and it’s dropping on April 19.
Shortly after winning her award/making her big announcement … Taylor went backstage and uploaded a tweet that showed off what seems to be the album cover, as well as some apparent lyrics. They’re interesting … they certainly read like a traditional poem, super deep.
As you can imagine, the Swifties are absolutely losing their minds right now — ’cause this truly did come out of nowhere. Up until now, people figured she was busy re-recording her old albums and was focusing on just that for the time being.
She released two “Taylor’s Version” albums last year … and seemed to have her hands full on that front. Plus, she’s been knee-deep in performing for the ‘Eras’ tour — not to mention being in a whirlwind romance with Travis Kelce. As it turns out, she was laying down tracks for a whole new project in the wings … and now, we’re going to hear fresh material.
If you thought Taylor was already on top of the world — and she most certainly is — that mountain top is only going to get higher at this point. 2023 was Taylor’s year … ditto for ’24.
You can’t keep a good girl down … the Taylor Swift eternal era is upon us, y’all!!!
