A new Taylor Swift album is only two months away.
While accepting the final award for the night at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, Swift announced that her milestone 10th album will be dropping on Friday, October 21. She later announced that the album is called “Midnights” and will contain 13 tracks.
“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,” Swift wrote on Instagram.
“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 twelve… we’ll meet ourselves.”
After her short film for “All Too Well” won video of the year, Swift explained to fans why she decided to use her speech to make the album announcement.
“I had sort of made up my mind that if you were gonna 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 21st,” she said, promising more details at midnight.
This will be Swift’s first new album since 2020, when the singer surprise-released “Folklore” and “Evermore” five months apart. Since then, the “Lover” singer has been busy rerecording her first five albums. She released “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)” in April 2021, followed by “Red (Taylor’s Version)” last November.
