Taylor Swift Announces ‘Black Dog’ Edition Of ‘Tortured Poets’

Taylor Swift has announced the third and "final" limited special edition of her upcoming album, The Tortured Poets Department. The icon made the announcement of the bonus track, "The Black Dog," during a "secret songs" segment in Singapore over the weekend. As a title, “The Black Dog” will be intriguing to fans who know it as a popular expression for depression or melancholy. It was apparently first used by poet Samuel Johnson in the 1700s and popularized in the 20th century through its association with Winston Churchill. Although little is known about the newest Swift bonus track, she did include a presumed lyrical snippet on social media. In the caption, Swift writes: "Old habits die screaming…" This vinyl is black and features a photo of Swift grasping at her head and neck with her arms. In the second slide, the singer-songwriter looks to the side, with some white flowers peeking out from the bottom of the photograph. This version of the album will be available only through Swift’s official website, with a cutoff time of Wednesday, March 6th at 2 p.m. ET, while supplies last.
