Taylor Swift won’t be shaking off Singapore any time soon!

On Sunday night, the “All Too Well” singer, 34, took the stage in Singpore to perform for about 55,000 fans and made a surprise announcement.

During her second show at the Singapore National Stadium, Swift, while sitting at her piano, revealed the fourth and final version of her upcoming album, The Tortured Poets Department.

A fan post on X (formerly known as Twitter) showed that an image of the new version of the album appeared behind her on stage, revealing the bonus track for this edition is titled “The Black Dog.” Previously unseen artwork of Swift running her hands through her hair was also included.


The pop superstar also shared the news on Instagram, alongside an image of the same artwork that appeared during her show.

“’Old habits die screaming…’ File Name: The Black Dog 🖤,” she wrote, adding, “Pre-order the final new edition of THE TORTURED POETS DEPARTMENT with exclusive bonus track ‘The Black Dog’ on my website now.”

Swift also included a second image of the album’s track listing in her post, which featured a separate shot of Swift with the words “Old habits die screaming” written across it.

On Feb. 23 Swift announced the third special edition of the album with bonus track “The Albatross,” while on stage during an Eras Tour show in Sydney. The second version, featuring bonus track, “The Bolter,” was revealed during Swift’s Melbourne show on Feb. 16, while the original announcement of the new album was made during the singer’s acceptance speech when she won best pop vocal album for her album Midnights at the 2024 Grammy Awards on Feb. 4. The first version of the album features bonus track, “The Manuscript.”

Meanwhile, Swift’s Sunday performance marked the second of six shows she’ll perform in Singapore. Swift will perform another show on Monday night and then have a two-day break before returning to the Eras Tour stage again on Thursday for three more nights.

On Saturday, Swift delighted fans when she shared that Singapore holds special meaning for her, because of her mom, Andrea Swift.

“My mom actually spent a lot of her childhood with her mom and dad and sister growing up in Singapore,” she told the crowd, as captured in a video posted on X.

“So a lot of the time when we’d come here on tour, my mom would take me and drive me past her old house, where she used to go to school. So I’ve been hearing about Singapore my whole life,” she added.

Before Singapore, Swift treated her fans in Sydney, Australia to moments she described as “magical” in an Instagram post reflecting on her time in the city down under.

While there, she sang a mashup of her songs “White Horse” and “Coney Island” with her supporting act Sabrina Carpenter after a weather delay forced the 24-year-old “Emails I Can’t Send” singer’s set to be canceled for a night.
