Taylor Swift reminded Us, once again, that it’s nice to have a friend.

Multiple pals from the singer’s orbit came out in support of her new album, The Tortured Poets Department, which was released on Friday, April 19. From Post Malone to Sabrina Carpenter, plenty of love was doled out via social media, with celebrity friends channeling their inner Swifties and sharing screenshots of the songs they were streaming.

Swift shared her own excitement over the release of her 11th studio album, penning a note to her fans via Instagram and explaining TTPD’s origins. (Along with the initial 16 tracks, Swift dropped a double album, The Tortured Poets Department: The Anthology, with an additional 15 songs.)

“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,” she wrote. “This period of the author’s life is now over, the chapter closed and boarded up.”
