Taylor Swift celebrated her 13th Grammy award by making a big announcement. The 34-year-old won 'Best Pop Vocal Album' for her record-breaking offering, 'Midnights'

She told the audience at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles that she would make a special post about the album as soon as she got backstage.

"I want to say thank you to the fans by telling you a secret I've been keeping from you for the last two years. Which is that my brand new album comes out April 19. It's called 'The Tortured Poets Department'," she said.

Taylor also made history at the Grammys when Celine Dion presented her with the coveted 'Album of the Year' award. It's her fourth time taking home the prize. 

She has now won the category more times than any other artist in history.

Taylor, who was seated next to fellow 'Album of the Year' nominee, Lana Del Rey, appeared shocked when her name was called. 

"I would love to tell you that this is the best moment of my life, but I feel this happy when I finish a song, or when I crack to code to a bridge I love, or when I'm shortlisting a music video, or when I'm rehearsing with my dancers or my band, or getting ready to go to Tokyo to play a show. For me, the award is the work. All I wanna do is keep being able to do this. I love it so much, it makes me so happy," the Grammys website quoted her as saying.

The 'Anti-Hero' hitmaker also acknowledged Lana in her acceptance speech. 

"Lana Del Rey, who is hiding, but I think so many female artists would not be where they are and would not have the inspiration they have if it weren’t for the work that she’s done. I think she’s a legacy artist, a legend in her prime right now. I’m so lucky to know you and to be your friend."
