Taylor Swift’s new album The Tortured Poets Department drops on April 19, and that date does not appear to have been randomly chosen out of a hat. Fans were quick to notice several things about this date—first and foremost, it was the day Taylor went to dinner with Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds last year (right after her breakup) and Ryan (along with Taylor’s brother Austin) proceeded to unfollow her ex Joe Alwyn:

Meanwhile, April 19 is also considered the date the American Revolution began, which is slightly!!! considering fans think Taylor (aka Miss Americana)’s album is about breaking up with Joe (who she lived with for a time in England) and has a track literally called “So Long, London.”
Oh, and on top of THAT, fans clocked that April 19 is also Poetry and the Creative Mind Day.
Soooo, yeah, chances of this being a randomly selected release date? Slim to none. Anyway, if you’re in the mood to analyze more things, here’s the TTPD track list:
