Nialler9 keeps a rolling list of Irish album releases here.


New Albums


Taylor Swift – THE TORTURED POETS DEPARTMENT

Taylor’s 11th studio album with a synth pop flavour. Features Florence & The Machine and Post Malone. A 31 tracks, 2 hours long anthology version, the corporate pop juggernaut is back again.

“The Tortured Poets Department. An anthology of new works that reflect events, opinions and sentiments from a fleeting and fatalistic moment in time – one that was both sensational and sorrowful in equal measure. This period of the author’s life is now over, the chapter closed and boarded up. There is nothing to avenge, no scores to settle once wounds have healed. And upon further reflection, a good number of them turned out to be self-inflicted. This writer is of the firm belief that our tears become holy in the form of ink on a page. Once we have spoken our saddest story, we can be free of it.

 And then all that’s left behind is the tortured poetry.”

Taylor Swift
