Travis Kelce was full of praise about his girlfriend Taylor Swift’s upcoming album, The Tortured Poets Department, calling it ‘unbelievable.’

The NFL star, 34, confirmed he has heard bits of the record — set to be released on April 19th — which Swift, 34, surprisingly announced at the Grammys on Sunday.

‘I have heard some of it, yes, and it’s unbelievable,’ the Kansas City Chiefs tight end gushed at a press conference in Las Vegas, ahead of the Super Bowl, as per The Kansas City Star.

‘I can’t wait for her to shake up the world when it finally drops,’ Travis — who admitted he hasn’t spoken with Taylor since her night at the Grammys — added.

Kelce played coy about revealing his favorite song off the new album — after Taylor shared the 17-song tracklist earlier in the day — and replied, ‘I can neither confirm nor deny that.’

Kelce did however reveal his overall favorite Taylor song.

‘Right now, I’d probably say ‘Anti-Hero’ just ’cause I hear it every single day,’ he said.

As for Taylor’s big wins at the Grammys, he said: ‘She’s unbelievable. She’s rewriting the history books herself. I told her I’d have to hold up my end of the bargain and come home with some hardware, too.’

Kelce also noted the influence Swift has had on bringing new fans to football: ‘She’s definitely brought a lot of new faces to the game,’ he said.

‘Taylor has an unbelievable fan base that follows her and supports her throughout her life. It’s been fun to kind of gather the Swifties into Chiefs Kingdom and open them up to the football world and the sports world.’

At one point he was also asked point blank: ‘What’s it like dating Taylor Swift?’

‘Man, I tell you what, it’s a wild experience,’ Kelce answered. ‘But I’m enjoying and loving every bit of it.’

Though he was asked about his Valentine’s Day plans a number of times, Travis did not disclose what he has in store for Taylor.

‘I’ll tell you what, man, I’m not thinking about anything but this football game. There’s nothing in my mind that’s happening until this football game is over with.’

The athlete admitted that he has not spoken with Swift since Sunday night’s Grammy Awards.

The Kansas City Chiefs plane landed in Las Vegas to start preparing for Super Bowl LVIII as Swift won a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album, said Kelce.

He saw the singer win her first hardware of the night as he regained phone service. Yet, Kelce said he has not spoken with Swift since the Grammys because she needed to get on a plane, likely to Tokyo for the Japanese leg of ‘The Eras Tour’.

Kelce did not answer whether Swift would be in attendance at Super Bowl LVIII at Allegiant Stadium or whether she has a private plane to make the game.

Swift has attended 12 Chiefs games this season, including all three Chiefs postseason wins.

‘She seems to be enjoying the games,’ Kelce said. ‘She’s a part of Chiefs Kingdom right now. It’s fun to see her enjoy the game of football knowing that it’s kind of new to her life.’

Swift won two Grammy Awards on Sunday, including her record-breaking fourth ‘Album of the Year’ award, bringing her lifetime total to 14 Grammys.

She announced a new album, The Tortured Poets Department — which some fans speculate could detail her relationship with ex Joe Alwyn, 32 — during her first acceptance speech of the evening.

And on Monday she shared the 17-song tracklist to go along with it.

She posted a black and white image of her profile to her Instagram, with white letters on her shoulder reading, ‘I love you, it’s ruining my life.’

On the right were the names of her songs, with a caption underneath reading ‘From the desk of Taylor Swift.’

The album will feature collaborations with Post Malone and Florence + the Machine.

The album will begin with a song called ‘Fortnight’ (feat. Post Malone). It will be followed by a track of the same name as the album, ‘The Tortured Poets Department.’

Next up are, ‘My Boy Only Breaks His Favorite Toys’ followed by ‘Down Bad’ and ‘So Long, London.’

Track six is called ‘But Daddy I Love Him’ and is followed by ‘Fresh Out The Slammer’ and ‘Florida!!! (feat. Florence + The Machine).’
