Taylor Swift's highly anticipated album 'The Tortured Poets Department' is finally out in the world!

The 'Shake it Off' singer dropped TTPD on the 19th of April and then two hours later at 2am surprised fans by dropping 15 more songs as part of The Anthology - So, it's safe to say the Swifties lost the rag!

Taking to Instagram to share the exciting news she captioned the post: It’s a 2am 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." she continued.

However, while most people think the album is about her ex-boyfriend Joe Alwyn who she dated for 6 years,  Swifties say Tay Tay is actually singing about Matty Healy who she dated for a month.

According to them, The smallest man that ever lived, I can fix him (no really I can), fresh out the slammer, guilty as sin, down bad, but daddy I love him, the tortured poets department AND fortnight all reference the 1975 singer.

Meanwhile, you'll be happy to know it's not all heartbreak as the second album apparently has songs about her beau Travis Kelce and even a bit of drama...

Fans believe that track 24 ‘thanK you aIMee’ is aimed at Kim Kardashian, as the letters K,I and M are in caps to spell out her name.

They both famously fell out after Kim's ex-hubby Kanye West referred to Taylor as a b***h in his song famous.

Taylor opened up about the feud during her interview with Time after being crowned Person of the Year and said: “Make no mistake—my career was taken away from me,”

“You have a fully manufactured frame job, in an illegally recorded phone call, which Kim Kardashian edited and then put out to say to everyone that I was a liar. That took me down psychologically to a place I’ve never been before." she continued.

"I moved to a foreign country. I didn’t leave a rental house for a year. I was afraid to get on phone calls. I pushed away most people in my life because I didn’t trust anyone anymore. I went down really, really hard.”

The full album includes 31 songs and has a runtime of 122 minutes - Well that's my weekend plans cancelled!
