The 1975 lead vocalist has broken his silence on his former girlfriend's newly-released studio album which reportedly contains references to their past relationship.

AceShowbiz - In a music industry where storytelling often transcends the beat, Taylor Swift's newest album, "The Tortured Poets Department", emerges as a rich tapestry of emotional depth, mysterious musings, and a candid glimpse into the singer's personal life.

Among the intrigued ones is none other than Matty Healy, The 1975's lead singer, who finds himself at the center of speculation with several tracks presumed to be about their brief encounter. Despite the spotlight, Healy's reaction is surprisingly mild, with a nod to the quality he expects from Swift's work, yet disclosing his minimal engagement with the album thus far.

"I haven't really listened to that much of it," he said, "but I'm sure it's good."

Sources close to Healy have revealed a sense of relief following "TTPD" release. Despite initial nerves, they are pleased with how the album addresses the brief relationship. "Matty still thinks very highly of Taylor," said one source.

Besides her fleeting connection with Healy, the album also unfolds a narrative spool that intertwines the end of Swift's six-year liaison with Joe Alwyn and a present romance with Travis Kelce.

"The Tortured Poets Department" is emblematic of Swift's ability to transform personal experiences into a universal art form that resonates widely. From introspective ballads like "Loml" to the upbeat yet heartrending "I Can Do It With a Broken Heart", Swift navigates the complexities of love, loss, and self-reclamation.

Notably, the song believed to directly reference Healy, the album's title track, offers a candid peek into the intimate corners of Swift's interactions with her muses, emphasizing her unique blend of vulnerability and wit.

She sings, "You left your typewriter at my apartment / Straight from the tortured poets department / I think some things I never say / Like, 'Who uses a typewriter anyway?' "

It aligned with Healy's previous remarks. "I really like typewriters," he explained in an interview. "The thing is with typewriters and writing on pen to paper, there's kind of an element of like commitment that goes with the ceremony of it. Therefore, it requires you to concentrate a bit better."

Insiders suggest Kelce's wholehearted support for the album and pride in being included in Swift's narrative journey. The Kansas City Chiefs tight end is unfazed by his girlfriend talking about her past relationships in her songs.

As Swift's fans dissect the album's lyrical layers, the intrigue around her muse's reactions offers a captivating sidebar to the main narrative. Yet, above all, "The Tortured Poets Department" stands as a testament to Swift's enduring talent for weaving her personal experiences into a broader tapestry of musical artistry, one that continues to captivate and inspire.
