Taylor Swift made a surprise announcement that “The Tortured Poets Department” is a double album as she unveiled 15 more tracks, two hours after the release of the initial album.

On Instagram, the award-winning singer-songwriter shared that the additional songs are a secret project called “The Tortured Poets Department: The Anthology.” 


“It’s a 2am surprise: The Tortured Poets Department is a secret DOUBLE album. I’ve written so much tortured poetry in the past 2 years and wanted to share it all with you, so here’s the second installment of TTPD: The Anthology. 15 extra songs. And now the story isn’t mine anymore… it’s all yours.” she wrote.

The initial album that was released on Friday midnight (ET) includes 16 songs, of which two tracks are collaborations with Post Malone and Florence + The Machine.

The four bonus songs, “The Manuscript,” “The Bolter,” “The Albatross” and “The Black Dog” are included in “The Anthology” alongside 11 other new songs. 

Upon its release, Swift described the making of her 11th studio album as “both sensational and sorrowful in equal measure.”

“The Tortured Poets Department. An anthology of new works that reflect events, opinions and sentiments from a fleeting and fatalistic moment in time – one that was both sensational and sorrowful in equal measure,” she said.

“This period of the author’s life is now over, the chapter closed and boarded up,” continued the singer. “There is nothing to avenge, no scores to settle once wounds have healed. And upon further reflection, a good number of them turned out to be self-inflicted. This writer is of the firm belief that our tears become holy in the form of ink on a page. Once we have spoken our saddest story, we can be free of it. And then all that’s left behind is the tortured poetry.”

The day before its release, Spotify announced that “The Tortured Poets Department” had broken the record for the most pre-saved album in the platform’s history.
