The Kansas City Chiefs tight end has already had the chance to listen to the finished product ‘on multiple occasions’ and has reportedly picked out his favorite tracks.

‘After Travis himself admitted to hearing some of Taylor’s new album during the Super Bowl, he has since been able to hear the entire album on multiple occasions and they have talked about the album and what the songs are all about,’ an insider told DailyMail.com exclusively.

‘He has a few favorites – Down Bad and loml – but he also loves everything he has heard. Why wouldn’t he?’

On announcing the album, fans were quick to speculate if Taylor would address her relationship with Joe Alwyn as the title appears to reference The Tortured Man Club – a WhatsApp group he shares with pals Paul Mescal and Andrew Scott.

But despite her reputation for divulging details about her love life in her albums, Travis is said to have ‘zero concern’ about potential references to past relationships.

‘If it is about Joe, or anyone, even if it is about him in the future, this is the artist she is and he is in love with her and doesn’t pay any attention to be jealous,’ the insider continued. 

‘He understands this is a major part of what makes her the person and artist she is and he is no way looking to thwart the direction she takes. 

‘He supports her 100 per cent and loves everything she is doing. Joe or any of her exes is not of concern to him whatsoever.’

With this being the first studio album Taylor has released since the pair began their romance in summer 2023, the source explained that Travis is looking forward to being able to purchase a copies in support of her.

‘He can’t wait to buy her album and support her that way,’ the insider dished. ‘He is very excited for her and for people to hear it and be there for the next phase of her career.’

Meanwhile, the podcast host is also hoping to do something ‘special’ for Taylor as a way to celebrate all her hard work – before she then jets off to continue her Eras World Tour in Europe next month.

On Wednesday, snippets of songs credited to the album started circulating on social media, with some claiming they had been taken from a Google Drive link containing 17 different songs – the same number of hits that Taylor confirmed would be included on her upcoming record.

DailyMail.com has seen a screenshot from a Swifties group chat in which a file containing the allegedly leaked album has been shared.

News of the so-called leak sent shockwaves through the singer’s fanbase, with some rushing to listen to the songs, while others were quick to defend the popstar, urging others to ‘report’ any posts circulating the clips and insisting that Taylor’s most die-hard supporters would wait until the official album is released.

DailyMail.com has reached out to Taylor’s representatives for comment. 

Taylor has been enjoying her free time with Travis, with the couple looking more than loved up as they partied with friends during the first weekend of Coachella.

While dancing away in the crowd, several fans captured sweet moments exchanged by the couple as they shared hugs and kisses during the performances.

The loved up display comes weeks after Travis admitted he is happier than ever.

‘I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.’ he told PEOPLE. ‘I’m a guy that some people say is glass half full, half empty, and my glass is all the way full. It’s all the way full. I’m oozing life right now.

‘It’s just so much fun getting into when you win the Super Bowl, all these doors open, and so I’ve just been going through all these open doors, experiencing life and just appreciating the people that have got me here and also staying high and meeting new faces.

‘It doesn’t feel like there’s much chill in my life. Everything seems to be full throttle and just moving at the speed of light, and that’s how I kind of like it.’

Taylor and Travis went public with their romance in September, with the singer jetting back and forth to support him at NFL games, including the Super Bowl. 

Travis also did his part to support Taylor, flying out to South America and Australia for her Eras World Tour.

The sportsman gave a rare insight into their lives in episodes of his New Heights podcast in which he admitted he has no idea how he managed to get her into the NFL.

He told rapper and actor Lil Dicky of his current situation: ‘It’s fun, man. I’m having a blast in life baby, just flying high and enjoying it all… bringing new lives to the football world, and opening the football world up to new things.’

In response, Philadelphia native Lil Dicky said: ‘I think it’s the best thing ever, I love it. My take on it, not that you want to talk about it for the 5000th time, there’s something that makes people feel like the world is like high school. 

‘Your most popular popstar, beloved musician, somehow met your most popular beloved athlete and they actually fell in love and it’s just real. Anyone who hates on it is a bitter loser. I think a lot of people who would expect to hate on it actually love it, and they acknowledge they love it because there’s something so American about it.’

‘I appreciate that,’ Travis said in response. ‘I don’t know how I did it, because she wasn’t into sports, so I don’t know how the f*** I did it.’

Lil Dicky then joked, ‘well, you did it because you said you called her out on your multimedia platform,’ leading to laughter and Travis replying: ‘Yeah I know exactly how I did it.’  

Travis and Taylor’s relationship began after he attended one of her Eras Tour shows and then went on to tell his podcast listeners that he failed to meet her after the show, despite making her a friendship bracelet. 

One thing led to another and the pair did eventually meet, hitting it off and swiftly becoming America’s hottest couple.
