Taylor Swift is releasing her next album, “Midnights,” on October 21st. The 32-year-old singer first announced the news at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards during her acceptance speech for the Video of the Year Award: “I thought it would be a fun moment to tell you that my new album comes out Oct. 21. I will tell you more at midnight.”
Swift then took to social media to reveal more details about the surprise project, which tells “the stories of 13 sleepless nights.” Swift wrote: “We lie awake in love and in fear, in turmoil and in tears. We stare at walls and drink until they speak back. We twist in our self-made cages and pray that we aren’t – right this minute – about to make some fateful life-altering mistake. This is a collection of music written in the middle of the night, a journey through terrors and sweet dreams. The floors we pace and the demons we face. For all of us who have tossed and turned and decided to keep the lanterns lit and go searching – hoping that just maybe, when the clock strikes 12 … we’ll meet ourselves.” The post concluded: “Meet me at midnight.”
Swift’s last two albums of new music – “Folklore” and “Evermore” – came out in 2020. She also has been releasing rerecorded versions of her old albums amid her dispute with record executive Scooter Braun.
