Emma Stone credited on Taylor Swift’s ‘Florida!!!’ from ‘The Tortured Poets Department’


Emma Stone has been credited for contributing “oddities” to Taylor Swift’s new album ‘The Tortured Poets Department’.

Swift dropped the album yesterday (April 19), before later revealing that it is in fact a double album, sharing 15 additional tracks. She has also released the official video for the single ’Fortnight’, which features Post Malone.

The track ’Florida!!!’ on the album includes a feature from Florence Welch, but the official credits also list Stone as having added “oddities” to the track.

No further information has been provided about exactly what the double Oscar winner added to the final song. Listen to the track below:

Stone and Swift are long-time friends, with the actress having gone to at least three shows on the ‘Eras’ tour. She also cracked a joke about the pop icon at the Golden Globes, later regretting it after it was taken out of context.

Artists including Charlie Puth, The Blue Nile, Lucy Dacus, Patti Smith, Dylan Thomas and possibly Kim Kardashian all received shout-outs on the album, with fans speculating that many of the songs address her brief romantic relationship with The 1975’s Matty Healy.

In a three-star review of the album, NME wrote: “‘The Tortured Poets Department’ ends up chasing its own tail with frenzied attempts to respond to critics despite Swift’s current stature.”

It continued: “Swift seems to be in tireless pursuit for superstardom, yet the negative public opinion it can come with irks her, and it’s a tired theme now plaguing her discography and leaving little room for the poignant lyrical observations she excels at. It’s why the pitfalls that mire her 11th studio album are all the more disappointing – she’s proven time and time again she can do better.

“To a Melbourne audience of her ‘Eras Tour’, Swift said that ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ came from a “need” to write. It’s just that maybe we didn’t need to hear it.”
