Taylor Swift, Mylène Farmer, Voyou... The musical releases of the week

It's Friday, time for the week's new music playlist!

When spring is slow to appear, temperatures remain low and the weather capricious, we can always count on musical releases! And this Friday, in this new week of April, several new releases can be noted on streaming listening platforms and the bins of our music stores. It's hard to miss the phenomenon Taylor Swift, who unveils her highly anticipated new project, a double album called The Tortured Poets Department.

Also note this Friday, April 19, the new EP from the singer Voyou, but also the album of remixes by Mylène Farmer. Plug in the speakers, turn up the volume, here is the playlist of this week's releases:

Superstar Taylor Swift is releasing her highly (much?) anticipated new album this Friday, called The Tortured Poets Department and which has... 31 tracks. A nice surprise for Swifties - Taylor Swift fans, who discovered at midnight that this record was in fact a double album. "I've been writing so much torture poetry over the past two years and I wanted to share it all with you, so here's the second installment of The Tortured Poets Department: The Anthology. 15 more songs," the singer wrote on social media.
