Swifties speculate Taylor Swift's new album is about deterioration of romance with Joe Alwyn

"I think more than any of my albums that I've ever made — I needed to make it. It was really a lifeline for me," Swift remarked during a recent 'Eras Tour' stop in Melbourne, Australia, hinting at the deeply personal nature of 'The Tortured Poets Department.'

Ever since Swift announced 'The Tortured Poets Department' during the Grammy Awards in February, Swifties have been in a frenzy, dissecting every possible clue and constructing intricate theories about the album's themes and inspirations.

One widely accepted theory suggests that the record will primarily explore the deterioration of Swift's six-year romance with Joe Alwyn, with certain fans even conjecturing that the album symbolizes the five stages of grief.
