In order to prepare her fans for the impending release of her new album, Taylor Swift has partnered with Spotify.

The “Cruel Summer” singer and Spotify announced on April 15 that they would be working together on a “library installation” promote her new album, The Tortured Poets Dept in Los Angeles.

According to a news statement from the company, Swifties can explore an outdoor poetry library that has been carefully picked to reflect the new record’s direction.

According to Spotify, the structure’s shelves will be crammed with volumes and “visual surprises”—presumably all allusions to or inspiration for Swift’s upcoming album. While it’s open, it will be refreshed with fresh content every day, and the business hinted that the book might have some information concerning What The Tortured Poets Department has in store.

From April 16–18, The Grove in the city of Los Angeles will host a library exhibition. However, Spotify assures fans that there will be no surprise and the entire album breakdown will be accessible on Swift’s album down page as well as the social media accounts of the music distributor.

Swift is stepping it up a notch less than a week before The Persecuted Poets Department hits stores. She worked with Spotify once more earlier this week, this time to send a unique video message reminding listeners to pre-save the record on the service.

In the monochrome video, Swift states, “Hey Spotify, happy launch weekend of The Tortured Poetry Department album.” Remember to save the album and return often to see any new information from the department.

Swift is seen in the video sitting at a typing, where she also used to reveal a few lyrics from the album that will be released on April 8—the date of the totality of the sun.

At that moment, she posted on her Instagram Stories, “Crowd goes crazy at her fingertips/Half spirits, Full eclipse.”
Swift first shockingly revealed that she will be producing her twelfth studio album at her 2024 Grammy Awards acceptance speech for Midnights, the best pop vocal album (which also happened to be her 13th Grammy prize, which is renowned for being her lucky number).

Swift praised her supporters for supporting her tenth album, Midnights, during the speech and said that she wanted to give them back by sharing a secret she had been holding for two years.

Her social media channels immediately provided additional details about the planned release, such as the cover art, title The Tortured Poetry Department, and slogan, “All’s fair in loves and poetry,” once she exited the stage.

Swift released an official tracklist of the record the day after it was announced, sparking speculation among Swifties regarding the album’s titles.

“Fortnight,” “The Tortured Poets Department,” “My Boy Always Breaks His Favorite Toys,” and “Down Bad” are among the tracks on Side A. “So Long, London,” “But Daddy I Love Him,” “Fresh Out the Slammer,” and “Florida!!!” are the tracks on Side B.
