One of the fans rejoicing is her new BFF Brittany Mahomes, the wife of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, and teammate of Taylor’s boyfriend Travis Kelce.

The 28-year-old personal trainer took to her Instagram story on Thursday evening, sharing Swift’s post about her new album dropping.

She added inthe caption, ‘Let’s goooooo,’ with three clapping-hands emojis in her story post.

The album’s release has unleashed a wave of speculation about numerous songs, including how one called The Alchemy is about her boyfriend Kelce.

Still, Swift herself indicated in her Instagram post that the songs on this album are about a chapter of her life that is closed.

‘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,’ Swift began.

‘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,’ she said.

‘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,’ she said.

‘Once we have spoken our saddest story, we can be free of it. And then all that’s left behind is the tortured poetry. THE TORTURED POETS DEPARTMENT is out now,’ she concluded.

While Swift claims the songs in her new album are about a time in her life that has passed, rumors have emerged that at least one song is about Travis Kelce.

‘The Alchemy’ apparently has multiple references that fans have interpreted to be about Kansas City Chiefs star Kelce.

One fan took to X and wrote: ‘the alchemy is clearly about travis lmao touchdown, greatest in the league, gloves on the bench… “where’s the trophy he just comes running over to me”

Another said: ‘There is one beautiful surprise – The Alchemy is about Travis!

‘References touchdowns, teammates, trophies and how they had an instant connection they couldn’t resist.’

A different fan responded to a wider discussion about the record by saying: ‘I also think the alchemy is about Travis. It fits perfectly.’

Speaking about the upcoming release back in February, when he was building up to the Super Bowl in Las Vegas, Kelce said he had heard some of the songs on Swift’s latest release.

‘I have heard some of it and yes, it’s unbelievable,’ he said to reporters. ‘I can’t wait for her to shake up the world when it finally drops.’

The couple went public last September, when the singer turned up to Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City to watch Travis and the Chiefs beat the Chicago Bears.

Swift, 34, went to 13 Chiefs games overall, including the Super Bowl in Vegas, where she raced back from Tokyo, Japan to see Kelce win football’s ultimate prize for a third time.

He is expected to join her where possible for a number of her upcoming European tour dates. The four-month run starts next month in Paris.

After winning the Super Bowl, Kelce traveled to Australia and Singapore to see Swift perform as her Eras Tour went global.

It remains to be seen whether Swift incorporates any new material on the European tour and whether Kelce gets more of a direct shoutout from her.

She has previously changed lyrics in her song ‘Karma’ to reference ‘the guy on the Chiefs coming home to me’.
