Taylor Swift has seemingly told her fans not to "avenge" the subjects of her new album, The Tortured Poets Department.

Hours after the hitmaker dropped her eleventh studio album at midnight on Friday, she appeared to ask fans not to harass her exes.

"The Tortured Poets Department. An anthology of new works that reflect events, opinions and sentiments from a fleeting and fatalistic moment in time - one that was both sensational and sorrowful in equal measure," Taylor wrote in an Instagram post.

"There is nothing to avenge, no scores to settle once wounds have healed," she continued. "And upon further reflection, a good number of them turned out to be self-inflicted. This writer is of the firm belief that our tears become holy in the form of ink on a page. Once we have spoken our saddest story, we can be free of it."

The Love Story singer concluded, "And then all that's left behind is the tortured poetry."

Shortly after its release, fans took to social media to analyse the lyrics in the album. Many social media users have concluded that the songs are mostly about her ex-boyfriends Joe Alwyn and Matty Healy.

Fans have also speculated that Taylor's new song, thanK you aIMee, is about her feud with Kim Kardashian. Fans have pointed out that the capital letters in the title spell KIM and that the lyrics tell the story of Taylor being bullied.

Last year, the All Too Well singer claimed that her highly-publicised feud with Kim and Kanye West in 2016 nearly ended her career.

"Make no mistake - my career was taken away from me," she told Time magazine. "You have a fully manufactured frame job, in an illegally recorded phone call, which Kim Kardashian edited and then put out to say to everyone that I was a liar. That took me down psychologically to a place I've never been before."
