Meet me at Midnight

Taylor Swift announces release of her tenth album after a two-year hiatus

Taylor Swift’s Video Music Awards acceptance speech for “Video of the Year” for “All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version)” was more than a simple thank you to the fans. While her acceptance speech began with her saying, “I know with every second of this moment that we wouldn’t have been able to make this short film if it weren’t for you, the fans. Because I wouldn’t be able to re-record my albums if it weren’t for you. You emboldened me to do that,” it ended with her shockingly stating, “And I had sort of made up my mind that, if you were going to be this generous and give us this, I thought it might be a fun moment to tell you that my brand-new album comes out October 21, and I will tell you more at midnight.”

Just as Swift promised, at exactly 12 a.m. on August 29, Taylor Swift created an uproar from Swifties with the announcement of an upcoming release of a brand new album. Swift posted on Instagram and Twitter writing, “Midnights, the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life, will be out October 21. Meet me at midnight.” Midnights will be the tenth album by Swift and the first new album in over two years. 

The album will include a tracklist of thirteen songs with titles such as, “The Last Year,” “Moonshine,” “Thousand Tears,” etc.. Swift went on to describe that “this is a collection of music written in the middle of the night, a journey through terrors and sweet dreams.” She tells fans that the album will consist of the thoughts she had at midnight throughout years of nights faced with fear, tossing and turning, and searching for a new beginning when the clock struck midnight. 

Only a few more midnights to go…
