Taylor Swift uses Grammy acceptance speech to announce her new album

The singer took fans completely by surprise with the news!

Taylor Swift has announced she will release a new album in April.

The singer broke the news as she accepted her award for the Best Vocal Pop Album at the Grammys.

"Okay, this is my 13th Grammy, which is my lucky number. I don’t know if I’ve ever told you that," she said as she took the stage.

“So I want to say thank you to the fans by telling you a secret that I have been keeping from you for the last two years, which is that my brand-new album comes out April 19th. It’s called The Tortured Poets Department."

She added: "I’m going to go and post the cover right now backstage. Thank you, I love you!"

Speculation that she was set to release a new album began earlier in the night when her website displayed a black screen error message.

Fans pointed out that the site hadn't crashed but was likely being scrubbed ahead of a major announcement.

It will be the 34-year-old's 11th studio album.
