Jack Antonoff Abruptly Ends Interview After Being Asked About Taylor Swift’s Upcoming Album

Look what you made him do. Jack Antonoff hung up on a Dutch news outlet after he was asked if he’s collaborating on Taylor Swift‘s upcoming album, The Tortured Poets Department.

The famed music producer was on the phone with a reporter from NRC, a daily morning newspaper published in the Netherlands, when he was asked about his involvement in Swift’s upcoming 11th studio album. The 39-year-old wasn’t exactly thrilled about the question. 

“You know I don’t talk about that,” he purportedly told the news outlet. “If you’re looking for clickbait, you’ve come to the wrong place. Thank you for this conversation.”

NRC reported in its story that Antonoff then hung up on the reporter.

It’s safe to say Antonoff will always have Swift’s back. In February, he came to her defense in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, pushing back against claims that she doesn’t write her own songs.

Questioning Swift’s songwriting know-how, Antonoff said, “Is like challenging someone’s faith in God. You just don’t go there.”

Antonoff — who first teamed up with Swift for her 2014 album, 1989 — also admitted at the time, “I’m a little b**ch sometimes. But you come after my friend Taylor, you’re toast to me.”

Swift announced her new album while accepting her 13th GRAMMY Award in February for Best Pop Vocal Album for Midnights.

“OK, this is my 13th GRAMMY, which is my lucky number. I don’t know if I’ve ever told you that,” Swift quipped. “I want to say thank you to the members of the Recording Academy for voting this way, but I know that the way that the Recording Academy voted is a direct reflection of the passion of the fans.”

Since that announcement, Swift has also shared the tracklist, revealing that the album will include 17 tracks and features with Post Malone and Florence + the Machine. When The Tortured Poets Department drops April 19, it’ll be the seventh album Antonoff and Swift have worked on together.
