Tennessee resident and worldwide superstar Taylor Swift is releasing her 11th studio album "The Tortured Poets Department" at 11pm Thursday.

The intrigue: Grimey's, the East Nashville record store with past ties to Swift, unveiled a new mural celebrating the album's arrival.

Between the lines: Ever the musical mastermind, Swift has sprinkled hints about her new work around the country. The Grimey's mural is next to a QR code that leads to a video of a typewriter typing the letter O, as in, "Oh Taylor, what does it all mean?"

Zoom in: In the runup to release day, Swift released playlists arranged around the stages of grief, intensifying speculation that this will be a breakup album.
