Taylor Swift announced that her upcoming studio album, 'The Tortured Poets Department', is set to release on April 19. The announcement came during her acceptance speech at the 66th Grammy Awards, where she received the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album for 'Midnights'.

In her speech, the 34-year-old singer shared the exciting news, expressing her gratitude to fans. Shortly after the on-stage announcement, Swift took to Instagram to unveil the album cover, captioning her post with, "All’s fair in love and poetry... New album THE TORTURED POETS DEPARTMENT. Out April 19."

Accompanying her Instagram post is a verse, presumably from one of the songs on the upcoming album. The lyrics evoke a poetic mood, with lines like, "And so I enter into evidence/My tarnished coat of arms/My muses, acquired like bruises/My talismans and charms/ The tick, tick, tick, of love bombs/ My veins of pitch black ink."
