Taylor Swift Drops New Album At The Grammy’s, 2024: ‘The Tortured Poets Department’

Setting A Record At The Grammy Awards

American pop princess Taylor Swift set a new record at the 66th Grammy Awards held at on Sunday, as she accepted the Album of the Year award for her latest work ‘Midnights’. After her 13th Grammy — her “lucky number”, for her album Midnights in the category “Best Pop Vocal Album” , Taylor went on to clinch her 14th Grammy and her fourth win in this category, marking a victory never achieved before: the most Album of the Year wins for any artist in Grammy history. Swift has broken a tie with Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra, and Paul Simon to achieve this historic milestone.

‘Midnights’: The Album


Midnights was Swift’s tenth original studio album, which birthed hits on the Billboard Hot 100, with “Anti- Hero,” which hit No. 1, as well as “Lavender Haze” and “Karma,” which both reached No. 2 on the chart. It was released in October of 2022, inspired by her late night ruminations. It sold 1.6 million copies in its first week in the US two years ago.

The award was presented to her by the legendary singer Celine Dion, who elicited a standing ovation from the star studded audience as she graced the stage. In the past, the singer has clinched victory in this category for her albums Fearless, 1989, and Folklore. After besting Kelly Clarkson‘s ChemistryMiley Cyrus‘ Endless Summer VacationOlivia Rodrigo‘s GutsEd Sheeran‘s – (Subtract), Swift simultaneously dropped news of her new upcoming album, The Tortured Poet’s Department, coming on April 19th.

Jo Alwyn’s Reaction

Eagle-eyed fans have linked the title of the upcoming album to Taylor’s now ex-boyfriend Joe Alwyn. In 2022, the English actor told Variety magazine he was part of a WhatsApp group called “The Tortured Man Club”, along with fellow actors Paul Mescal and Andrew Scott.”It hasn’t had much use recently,” Alwyn told the magazine,”I feel like we’re less tortured now,” Mescal added.The interview took place in December 2022 – around the same time that US media outlets reported that Swift and Alwyn had broken up.

A source close to Joe Alwyn remarked, “Joe has not said one word about Taylor or their breakup and has been completely respectful of her,” the source said. “It’s undeniable that the name of her upcoming album is in reference to Joe’s WhatsApp group chat. Taylor knocked him for the name of this when they were together. She didn’t want people to think that it had anything to do with her, so when he spoke out about it, she was, of course, bothered.”

“Joe has no reason to believe yet that she is going to diss him or their relationship. She writes about her past using code and points of reference. It may just be that she is reflecting on their time together and he is hoping it is nothing more.”

That being said, “If it is a diss album, that is shady. He helped her with song writing on her past album so it will really come as a shock to him if she talks about their breakup, as it is something he has not spoken of at all. Regardless of what she does, he will still not respond because he has removed himself from her narrative and is very glad, he did.”
