Music notes: Taylor Swift, Michael Bublé and more

Murals are going up in Chicago that appear to be teasing Taylor Swift‘s new album, The Tortured Poets Department. Fans have shared images on social media of the murals, which include the text “TTPD” and “13.” The murals also feature a QR code, which leads you to a message on YouTube Shorts that says “Error 321,” in the old-fashioned typewriter font Taylor has been using for this era. Fans have pointed out that the same message appeared on Taylor’s website right before she announced the new album back in February.

In other Taylor Swift news — because it is release week, after all — actor Michael J. Fox points to her and her pal Ryan Reynolds as two people he sees as having a huge impact over the next 50 years. “I think she’s going to be a really important person. I think she moves economies, she changes the way the world works, and that’s amazing,” the actor tells People, adding that he appreciates what “she’s said publicly about issues.”

Billboard reports that Michael Bublé is one of the artists featured on an album called The Henry Mancini 100th Sessions – Henry Has Company, marking the 100th birthday of composer Henry Mancini, best known for “The Pink Panther Theme” and “Moon River.” Michael has recorded “Moon River” for the album, due out June 21. “When the Mancini family calls and asks you to be a part of honoring the legacy of a genius, you say, ‘Thank you so very much. I would love to be there,’” he says. Lizzo and Stevie Wonder are also on the album.
