In a post on social media, Taylor wrote: “It’s a 2 am surprise: ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ is a secret DOUBLE album. I’d 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.”

Taylor went on to explain the double album reflects a period of her life that’s “now over” and she insisted she has “no scores to settle once wounds have healed” with many speculating many of the songs explore her doomed relationship with actor Joe Alwyn and her brief romance with Matty Healy.

In a post on Instagram, Taylor wrote: “‘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. This period of the author’s life is now over, the chapter closed and boarded up. 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.”
