We highlight the successes of Epic Records CEO/chairman Sylvia Rhone. We look back at Toby Keith’s legacy after the country legend passed. It’s Tuesday, February 6th, and we’re kicking off Billboard News by breaking down all the latest on Taylor’s new album. Taylor Swift dropped the track list for her brand-new album and it packs some star power and the fan theories are already floating. Let’s break it down, Swifties.
My brand-new album comes out April 19th. It’s called ‘The Tortured Poets Department.’
The brand-new album is just a few months away and today we received the track list with song titles like “Down Bad” and “But Daddy I Love Him.” I see you, Ariel reference! And it features artists like Post Malone on “Fortnight” and Florence + The Machine on “Florida!!!” with three exclamation marks and with tracks like “So Long London” and “The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived,” fans think the album will be about her breakup from her British boyfriend of six years, Joe Alwyn. And there are other things they pointed out about the April 19th release date. It’s the same day last year that Taylor went to dinner with friends Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively and they unfollowed Joe on Instagram. It’s also the day in 1775 that British and American soldiers exchanged fire in the Massachusetts towns of Lexington and Concord starting the Revolutionary War. Never a slow day as a fan of Taylor Swift. While Taylor’s touring Asia, you have so many chances to see your faves all over the world.
