Taylor Swift Teases ‘a Lot of Exciting Things Coming Up’ in Her iHeartRadio Music Awards Speech

Taylor Swift didn’t make it out to the iHeartRadio Music Awards yesterday evening, but the singer accepted its Artist of the Year award from afar in a pre-recorded message. In it, the singer thanked her fans and teased that “we have so many exciting things ahead of us,” including her upcoming album, The Tortured Poets Department, out April 19.

“I’m so proud of it,” she said. “I cannot wait to share it with you.”

Last night marks Swift’s first major public appearance since she went on break following her Australia and Singapore Eras tour shows. Swift will resume her tour on May 9 in Paris, where she’ll kick off her European leg.

In her appearance last night, Swift kept her outfit simple, wearing a form-fitting blue top with gold jewelry. Read and watch her full speech below:

Hey, I wanted to say thank you so much to anyone who voted for this award. iHeart, you’ve also just been so incredibly supportive over the course of my entire career but especially this year has been pretty spectacular. I am so grateful for that.

You know, to the fans, it’s completely up to you to choose how you spend your time, what concerts you want to go to, what music you want to make the soundtrack to your life, and to anyone who has included me in those choices. I’m so, so, so thankful for that. And you know, we have so many exciting things ahead of us.

I’m continuing along with the tour, and most importantly, I have a brand new album called The Tortured Poets Department, which comes out on April 19, and I’m so proud of it. I cannot wait to share it with you so thank you for voting for me for this incredible honor: Artist of the Year. I am so blown away and so thankful, and I just can’t wait to keep having fun with you guys because we have a lot of exciting things coming up.
