Continuing the partnership between Swift and the mega-retailer, which first began with the pop star’s release of “Fearless” in 2008, Target is selling a Phantom Clear Vinyl version of “The Tortured Poets Department” that will be exclusively sold in its online and brick-and-mortar stores.

Per Target, who made the announcement on Instagram Monday morning, the Phantom Clear Vinyl will include a 24-page book-bound jacket, a replica of Swift’s handwritten lyrics, rare photos and a bonus track “The Manuscript.” The latter song is also available in the original vinyl and CD versions that Swift first announced at the Grammys last month.


Swift has used the stages throughout her ongoing world tour to make announcements about special editions of “The Tortured Poets Department.” During a performance in Sydney this month, she announced “The Black Dog” version, the third and “final” limited special edition of her upcoming album. Before that, she announced the “Albatross” version and the alternate “Bolter” edition, each one featuring a previously unannounced song and alternate cover art. While those three special editions were only available for a limited time on Taylor Swift’s webstore, the Target-exclusive vinyl is still available to pre-order on their website.

Swift surprise announced “The Tortured Poets Department” to her millions of eagle-eyed fans while accepting her award for best pop vocal album (“Midnights”) at the Grammys last month.  “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,” she said on stage before posting the cover to her Instagram backstage.

Swift is set to travel internationally for her ongoing “Eras Tour” through Aug. 17. Buy tickets to her remaining dates here.
