Old Habits Die Screaming Songs

When Taylor Swift announces an album, the world takes an interest. That’s certainly what happened in the days after she unveiled THE TORTURED POETS DEPARTMENT, as intrepid Swifties began hunting and assembling and pinning clues to digital cork boards, eventually landing on the theory that her 11th studio album is sure to explore the five stages of heartbreak. And when Swifties agree upon a theory, Taylor takes an interest—so, naturally, she’s responded by crafting a series of exclusive playlists, choosing songs of her own that fit each stage. The fourth stage is depression, and sadness is something Taylor’s captured in song as well as anyone ever has. Take the radiant longing of “champagne problems”, for example—written and recorded during the global pandemic, when we needed it most. Or what about “We Were Happy (Taylor’s Version)” and “Forever Winter (Taylor’s Version)”, slightly older standbys that are just as comforting and relatable—songs you can fall into, for sure, but songs that can hold you as well.
