Fans Speculate Taylor Swift’s New Album Includes Song About Matty Healy

Prolific musician Taylor Swift is preparing to launch her highly anticipated album, The Tortured Poets Department. Fans are speculating that the star may address her brief romance with Matty Healy of The 1975 fame, based on the album’s tracklist.

Insights into Swift’s Upcoming Album

The Tortured Poets Department is slated for release on April 19. While the album is expected to primarily chronicle Swift’s break-up with actor Joe Alwyn, several song titles hint that there may be references to her fling with Healy as well.

If the album is organized to follow Swift’s personal timeline, fans believe the first few tracks may delve into her relationship with the British actor, Alwyn. Links are being drawn between songs like “Fortnite,” “So Long, London” and “But Daddy, I Love Him” to their time together.

An Unexpected Surprise?

However, the album may take a turn with its seventh track, “Florida!!!”. Co-written with Florence Welch, the song appears to reference Swift’s worldwide Eras Tour. Notably, Swift was on tour in Florida when news of her split with Alwyn broke.

Swift and Healy’s Short-lived Romance

Following Swift’s breakup with Alwyn in 2023, rumors circulated that she began dating Healy shortly after. The two were often seen together, further fueling these speculations. Healy, however, found himself at the center of controversy when he remarked on the pressures of dating someone more famous than he is.

The two collaborated professionally in 2021 for Swift’s album Midnights. After ending things with Alwyn, Swift and Healy were often seen together, their gestures and comments at separate events stirring up rumors about a possible romance.

Controversies Surrounding the Pair

Their relationship came under fire when Healy mocked rapper Ice Spice, Swift’s collaborator, and her ethnicity during a podcast episode. This remark resulted in much public backlash.

Swift and Healy parted ways in June 2023. Sources have confirmed their split but add that their relationship was never a serious one.

Speculation on Songs about Healy

Fans believe song titles like “Guilty as Sin,” “I Can Fix Him (No Really I Can)” and “The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived” on TTPD might be directed at Healy. Swift has a history of singing about the challenges of dating in the public eye, so other songs like “Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me?” may also reference her past relationship with Healy.

Wrapping Up

Although Swift has yet to confirm these theories, she described The Tortured Poets Department as her “lifeline” during a tough period in her life. The album will certainly offer listeners an intimate peek into Swift’s trials and experiences in love and music.
