Taylor Swift is excited to get back on the road and reunite with her fans when she resumes her Eras Tour.

After discovering her new album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” sold 2.6 million units in its first week, she took to social media to admit her “mind is blown.”

“I’m completely floored by the love you’ve shown this album,” the 34-year-old singer wrote on X and Instagram Sunday while sharing photos from the recording process.

“2.6 million ARE YOU ACTUALLY SERIOUS?? Thank you for listening, streaming, and welcoming Tortured Poets into your life. Feeling completely overwhelmed.”

She continued, “I was already so fired up to get back to the tour but you doing THIS?? May 9th can’t come soon enough.”

The “Cruel Summer” songstress released her 11th studio album on April 19 with many songs about exes Joe Alwyn and Matty Healy. She even seemingly declares her love for current boyfriend Travis Kelce on a couple of the 31 tracks.

The album dropped during Swift’s hiatus from The Eras Tour, which she kicked off in March 2023 to celebrate all of her past albums.

While it remains unclear whether she’ll add songs from “TTPD” to her three-hour setlist, Swift will return to the stage on May 9 in Paris. She’ll then travel throughout Europe and the United Kingdom during the summer before returning to North America for several concerts in the fall.

The upcoming Eras Tour shows will be bittersweet for the singer, however, as she’ll be away from Kelce, 34.

“It makes the prospect of her tour more challenging. She’ll be sad,” the insider claimed.

Still, the couple, who went public with their romance in September 2023, know that work is a top priority of theirs.

“They support and respect [each other],” Us Weekly’s source also said.

“They have busy careers, so they understand those commitments, as difficult as it is.”

Since Swift’s last international show in Singapore in March, she and Kelce have been spotted on several outings together.

Not only were they spotted on a romantic vacation in the Bahamas last month, but they attended Coachella just a few weeks ago before attending a gala in Las Vegas over the weekend.

Kelce also previously admitted that he will be Traveling to Europe to support Swift at a few of her shows, so they won’t be apart for too long.

“Oh, you know I gotta go support,” he told “Entertainment Tonight” earlier this month when asked if he would be “packing [his] bags” soon.

“I think we both love what we do and any chance that I can show my support to her — knowing that she has shown me all the support in the world throughout the [NFL] season — it’s just been an amazing experience getting to know Tay.”
