Taylor Swift’s The Tortured Poets Department is finally here, and if you’re not already listening to it on repeat – now’s the time! This album has given us an impressive collection of new songs, and we’re bringing you five of the very best that will knock you off your feet.

“Fortnight” ft. Post Malone

The album’s lead single and opening track is the invisible string that connects it all and perfectly illustrates the themes that will stay with us for the rest of Tortured Poets.

“But Daddy I Love Him”

Aaron Dessner co-wrote some of the best Tortured Poets songs alongside Swift. “But Daddy I Love Him” is certainly one of its biggest storytelling gems that’s given us some of the album’s buzziest lines.

“So Long, London”

Dessner also helped Swift conceive the album’s most emotionally raw song, “So Long, London”, which is already being hailed as “All Too Well” of Tortured Poets.

“The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived”

The Tortured Poets Department has given us several vicious revenge songs that would put Reputation to shame, but none of them is as biting as “The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived”.

“Florida!!!” ft. Florence Welch

Most of the songs on Tortured Poets chronicled different stages of heartbreak, but Swift decided to simply have fun on “Florida!!!” and she found a perfect partner in crime in Florence Welch.
