Taylor Swift: where does the title of her new album come from?

Fans are already starting to dissect this new opus that the artist spent two years preparing out of sight. Some have noted the similarity of the title of the project “The Tortured Poets Department” to that of the 1989 film “Dead Poets Society” starring Robin Williams, a poetry professor who encourages his students to always refuse the established order. Others believe the name of this album is a reference to her ex, Joe Alwyn, who said in the past that he had a group chat on his phone called “Tortured Man Club”, with Paul Mescal, who was dating the right friend of Taylor Swift, Phoebe Bridgers.

In any case, the emergence of “The Tortured Poets Department” perhaps bodes nice surprises for the European public that Taylor Swift will visit in the spring as part of the superlative “The Eras Tour”.
