Taylor Swift released her eleventh studio album, The Tortured Poets Department, Friday night at 12 am. Just when Swifties thought it was time to rejoice, the 34-year-old singer surprised them with 15 more tracks at 2 am as part of TTPD: The Anthology. The highly-anticipated album broke Spotify record even before it was released, by becoming the most pre-saved album in history.

Aaron Dessner heavily credited in TTPD Anthology

While Swift writes her own lyrics, several tracks on TTPD were co-written by her longtime contributors, Jack Antonoff and Aaron Dessner. While the former was originally credited on five songs, eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice that Dessner co-wrote 10 of the 15 Anthology tracks and co-produced 11 of them, including The Black Dog, which is written entirely by the pop sensation.

With 31 new songs by Swift in one single day, Swifties started digging deeper into them. Fans noticed the difference between the two parts of the album, calling the original TTPD (in which Antonoff was heavily credited) similar to her last album, Midnights. However, the common notion around the Anthology tracks was its freshness and intricacy. Dessner also co-wrote and produced ThanK you aIMee, which is believed to be a dig at Kim Kardashian.
