“My lucky number, I don’t know if I ever told you that,” she said. “I know the way the Recording Academy voted is a direct reflection of the passion of the fans. So, I want to say thank you to the fans by telling you a secret that I’ve been keeping from you for the last two years, which is that my brand new album comes out April 19. It’s called The Tortured Poets Department. I’m going to go post the cover right now. Thank you I love you!”

Midnights, which was released in October 2022, is Swift’s 10th studio album. Upon its release, it became her fifth to sell over a million copies in one week.

Two songs from the album are up for Grammys tonight. “Anti-Hero” received nods for Record of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance, and Song of the Year. “Karma” featuring Ice Spice was also nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.

In all, Swift has received 52 Grammy nominations throughout her career.

Going into Sunday’s Grammys, there was speculation on social media that Swift would announce a re-recording of Reputation. But that seems unlikely now; her announcement of a new album follows a pattern she created since she started releasing re-records. She releases new music, then two re-records, followed by new music.
