Taylor Swift revealed a huge secret while accepting her 13th Grammy award. During her acceptance speech for Best Pop Vocal Album for her 2022 album Midnights, she announced that her brand new album The Tortured Poet’s Department will be out on April 19th.

As soon as she stepped off the stage, Swift revealed the cover art with a post on Instagram. “All’s fair in love and poetry… New album THE TORTURED POETS DEPARTMENT. Out April 19 🤍,” Swift wrote in the caption.

The post also included a handwritten note that reads: “And so I enter into evidence/ My tarnished coat of arms/ My talismans and charms/ The tick, tick, tick/ of love bombs/ My Veins of pitch black ink/ All’s fiar in love and poetry… Sincerely, The Chairman of The Tortured Poets Department.”
