Fuel pump issue after swapping tanks

I recently swapped tins on my 2010, including the gas tank, which i pulled the internals out of the tank and put in new tank. I replaced fuel filter while i was i had it out.
Since i did this, i can hear a high pitch noise from the fuel pump after it primes. Normally you hear the fuel pump noise prime, and then it shuts off.
but now i hear a higher pitch noise that doesnt shut off.
Anybody know what may have caused this, or what i can do to fix it?

thanks in advance for your help

This may be a stupid question but it there gas in the tank?
The pump will make a slightly different sound when it's not submerged in gas. Does it make that high pitched noise upon initial priming or just after the pump is running?
