Taylor Swift surprised fans by releasing a new single, “Fortnight,” off her upcoming album, The Tortured Poets Department. Despite her massive success, rumors circulated that the album was leaked by AI due to certain lyrics. However, Swift later revealed that the album was actually a double album with a total of 31 songs. The incident highlights the growing influence of AI in creating music and challenging authenticity in online content.


On Thursday, Taylor Swift shared an Instagram story to promote her latest single, “Fortnight,” from her upcoming album, The Tortured Poets Department. Despite her immense success as a recording artist, with 19 million albums sold in the US last year, she took to social media to create excitement around the new release.

Album Leak Controversy

However, alongside the promotional post, rumors began circulating that The Tortured Poets Department had leaked online through a Google Drive link, leading to divided reactions among fans. While some urged others to wait for the official release on Friday at midnight, others couldn’t resist listening to the leaked tracks.

Speculations of the leaked content being AI-generated arose, especially due to a particular line in the title track of the album allegedly mentioning her ex-boyfriend, Matty Healy. Although the leaked audio was promptly removed for copyright infringement, debates about the authenticity of the leak continued.

The Anthology

Upon the album’s official release, Taylor Swift surprised fans by revealing that The Tortured Poets Department was actually a “secret DOUBLE album” titled The Tortured Poets Department: The Anthology, featuring a total of 31 songs. However, the lingering suspicion of AI involvement in the leaked content remained a topic of discussion.

Impact of AI in Online Content

In an age where AI-generated content is increasingly prevalent, the skepticism surrounding online information has heightened. The blurred lines between reality and AI creations pose challenges for distinguishing between genuine and artificial content. As AI technology advances, the possibility of AI composing music like The Tortured Poets Department raises questions about the authenticity of creative works.
