Celebrate Taylor Swift’s New Album “The Tortured Poets Department” with iHeartRadio!

It’s Taylor Swift Week at iHeart! Join us as we count down the days until the release of “The Tortured Poets Department” on April 19.

“The Tortured Poets Department” is Taylor’s 11th studio album and her first featuring all new music since 2022’s wildly successful and critically-acclaimed “Midnights” that earned her a record-setting fourth Album of the Year win at the 2024 Grammys. To celebrate the new album, hundreds of iHeartRadio stations across the country will feature Taylor-themed programming kicking off Thursday, April 18 and throughout release week.  

On April 18, the day before release, all iHeartRadio CHR stations will feature a 10-minute mix full of Taylor’s biggest hits, while all iHeartRadio Hot AC stations will run a Taylor double-feature every hour highlighting a song from Taylor’s early Eras and one from her most recent. 

All week, Hot AC, CHR and select AC stations have been building anticipation for the “iHeartRadio Album Premiere with Taylor Swift” that will feature a broadcast of the album in its entirety the moment it’s released on Thursday at 9:01 p.m. PT / 12:01 a.m. ET. The broadcast event will feature audio from Taylor with insights on a selection of songs. If you miss the party, tune into iHeartRadio CHR and Hot AC stations all day on the 19th to hear this audio along with a song from the album played at the top of every hour.

Party with fellow Swifties across the country by tuning into your local participating iHeartRadio station and digitally on the iHeartRadio app. While there, check out the all-new “Tortured Poets Radio” featuring all of Taylor’s biggest hits, Swiftie-approved deep cuts and everything in between. 

Additionally, on April 19, iHeart kicks off the “13 Days of Taylor Swift Contest'' where Swifties can win official merch, and one lucky fan will win a guitar signed by Taylor and a trip to Miami for The Eras Tour! The promotion will be live for 13 days. To qualify, fans simply need to tune in to their local iHeartRadio CHR, Hot AC and Mainstream AC stations on the iHeartRadio app or listen to “Tortured Poets Radio” on iHeartRadio.
