THE title track of Taylor Swift’s latest album, released today, features a nod to famous poet and writer Dylan Thomas — a former Cornwall resident.

Dylan and his wife Caitlin were famously married in Penzance before they rented a studio from the painter Max Chapman at Newlyn.

The world-famous singer-songwriter Taylor dropped her surprise double album, The Tortured Poets Department: The Anthology, in the early hours of Friday morning.

It is the superstar's 11th studio album and features 31 songs in total, spanning over two hours.

The title track, The Tortured Poets Department, includes the chorus "I laughed in your face and said, ‘You’re not Dylan Thomas. I’m not Patti Smith.

“This ain’t the Chelsea Hotel. We’re modern idiots.”

Dylan has long been an inspiration to popular culture with Bob Dylan taking his name from the poet. The Beatles were also influenced by his words.

Celebrating the nod from Taylor, The National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth posted a thread on X to celebrate the Welshman's legacy, much of which is on display in the library.

The library said: "Even decades after his passing in 1953, Dylan Thomas remains a celebrated and influential figure in the world of literature, his words continuing to inspire and resonate with audiences around the globe (including Taylor Swift).

"His poetry often explored themes of love, loss, and the natural world and he became one of the greatest poets of his generation.

"Despite his short life, Thomas' legacy lives on through his timeless works such as, 'Under Milk Wood', and 'Do not go gentle into that good night'."

Dylan lived in Ceredigion at 'Majoda', New Quay in 1944/45 and 'Plas Gelli' near Talsarn between 1941 and 1943.

However, he had strong links with Cornwall having visited regularly.

It was while visiting friends in Cornwall that Dylan and his partner Caitlin decided to get married on July 11, 1937, at Penzance Registry Office.

At the time he wrote that they were ‘with no money, no prospect of money, no attendant friends or relatives, and in complete happiness’.

After their honeymoon at the 'Lobster Pot' in Mousehole, they rented a studio from the painter Max Chapman at Newlyn. 

The Ship Inn at Mousehole in Cornwall was also said to be a favourite watering hole for Dylan’s when he stayed there in 1937.
