Taylor Swift Creates Exclusive Apple Music Playlists For Heartbreak

Taylor Swift Premiere for Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour in Los Angeles

Before Taylor Swift welcomes you to The Tortured Poets Department, she offers a unique way to help you heal from a broken heart through special Apple Music playlists. Swift collaborated with Apple to curate five exclusive playlists featuring songs from her discography that correspond to the five stages of grief: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance.

The playlists are titled “I Love You, It’s Ruining My Life Songs,” “You Don’t Get to Tell Me About Sad Songs,” “Am I Allowed to Cry? Songs,” “Old Habits Die Screaming Songs,” and “I Can Do It With a Broken Heart Songs.” Each playlist includes tracks from Swift's upcoming album and voice notes from Swift explaining her song selections.

The first playlist, “I Love You, It’s Ruining My Life,” features songs like “Betty,” “Cruel Summer,” “Wildest Dreams,” and “Lavender Haze,” focusing on moments of denial and delusion. The playlist “You Don’t Get to Tell Me About Sad Songs” includes anger-driven tracks like “Bad Blood” and “I Knew You Were Trouble.”

“Am I Allowed to Cry? Songs” delves into the bargaining stage, while “Old Habits Die Screaming Songs” explores feelings of depression with songs like “My Tears Ricochet” and “Champagne Problems.” The final playlist, “I Can Do It With a Broken Heart Songs,” signifies acceptance and moving forward, featuring tracks like “I Forgot You Existed” and “This Love.”

The Tortured Poets Department, set to debut on April 19, marks Swift's 11th studio album release. Despite no singles being released yet, fans eagerly await new music. Swift's recent collaboration with SiriusXM has also provided a dedicated channel for her music.
