Matty Healy breaks his silence over ex-Taylor Swift’s new album The Tortured Poets Department – after savage tracks focused on their failed romance



Matty Healy has played coy over his ex Taylor Swift’s new album The Tortured Poets Department as he broke his silence on Wednesday on the music that documents their failed romance.

The 1975 singer Matty, 35, was surprisingly the focus of 34-year-old Taylor’s heartbreak album which was released last week to rave reviewsMatty and Taylor dated briefly after her split from her long-term boyfriend Joe Alwyn last year and despite the short relationship plenty of songs on the record appear to be about him.

Fortnight (feat. Post Malone) and in particular The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived seem to reference the star and the heartbreak Taylor felt when things ended.

Asked by a reporter from Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday what he thought of the ‘diss track’ Matty politely replied: ‘I haven’t really listened to that much of it but I’m sure it’s good.’

The singer, who briefly dated Matty last spring, is widely believed to take aim at him in the song The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived among others released, prompting renewed fan scrutiny of the period when she was dating The 1975 frontman.

Taylor’s 11th album The Tortured Poets Department was released last Friday as speculation the diss song was about Matty hit a fever pitch around the world.

The lyrics refer to a man in a ‘Jehovah’s Witness suit’ and ‘rusting my (Swift’s) sparkling summer’.

Matty is known for wearing distinctive black suits during live performances and the pair are believed to have broken up in June 2023.

According to Us Weekly, his reaction has been positive, and the people close to him ‘couldn’t be happier’ with how the record turned out.
