Taylor Swift says 'So Long, London' in new Tortured Poets Department song title
and live on Freeview channel 276
Having shared her love for London many times over the years, Taylor Swift has shouted out the capital in the title of a track on her upcoming album, The Tortured Poets Department - but it kind of feels like she is saying farewell.
Swift shocked fans with news of her eleventh studio album this week as she revealed her latest musical project while collecting her Grammy award for best pop vocal album for Midnights.
Following the announcement, she has shared the full tracklist for the project, which will drop later this spring, on April 19. One song title on side B, in particular, caught our eye for its reference to the capital.
Once a London local herself, Taylor has mentioned the city in a few lyrics of her songs, including Come Back... Be Here, Message In A Bottle and, of course, London Boy.
The city's latest mention in Swift's discography - So Long, London - however, feels quite melancholy and bittersweet. While we may have to wait until April for the song, its emotive title feels like Swift has put the city behind her.
