Fortnight featuring Post Malone

Taylor Swift has released her new album, featuring collaborations with Post Malone and Florence + The Machine. The album is now streaming on Apple Music. Co-written by Swift and Jack Antonoff, the song has a laid-back synth backdrop and a moderate speed. Swift's voice has an almost ethereal breath during the steady, recurring chorus, which is accentuated by a faint echo.

Track 2: The Tortured Poets Department

Track two of Taylor's Tortured Poets Department (headline song of the album) deepens the themes explored in Fortnight with fresh imagery and chilling graphics. She croons and dances around a dusty typewriter, a potent symbol of the album's creative spirit. The chorus finds the narrator grappling with their place in the industry, drawing a line between themself and established poetic legends like Dylan Thomas and Patti Smith. The song explores the battle for recognition and identity in the music industry, and subtle references to Charlie Puth give it an additional depth.

Fans ask how's Joe Alwyn doing?

“I swore you loved me, but where are the clues, I’m dying at the alter waiting for proof”!!!!!!!! I might be butchering the lyrics but hey! So Long, London."
