Taylor Swift just made sure all of our future ‘midnights’ will look much more colorful!
In case any ‘Swifties’ may have missed the glitter-infused news, one of the most famous musicians of the modern era is about to embark on a brand new era.
Two years after Swift released not one but TWO albums in the same calendar year, she’ll soon be back on our radar with the release of her tenth album, “Midnights!”
The “Lover” singer has had an extremely lucrative professional period lately.
Not only has she been preparing to embark on a new career chapter, but she’s also recently celebrated her now-career defining short film for “All Too Well,” a track that initially appeared on her 2012 LP “Red,” and was given a new lease on life last fall when a previously unheard 10-minute version of the fan-favorite tune appeared on “Red (Taylor’s version),” the re-recording of the album.
The Clock Is About To Strike ‘Midnight(s)’!

The fall vibes of “Red (Taylor’s version)” were recently warmed up to welcome “Midnights” into Swift’s lucrative body of work!
The 32-year-old superstar announced the album’s existence to the world while on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards last month, after accepting a ‘moon man’ award for the aforementioned “All Too Well” short film.”
It almost goes without saying THAT red scarf Swifties have been occupied with as of late was temporarily forgotten, once she revealed she would divulge more details about the album once midnight rolled around!
When the clock struck midnight, Swift’s Twitter account revealed the cover art and an additional photo with more information about “Midnight’s” general feel and its aesthetic, which we enthusiastically covered!
Swift’s tweet read, “Midnights, the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life will be out October 21st.”
The accompanying photo containing the extra information begins, “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 self-made cages and pray that we aren’t-right this minute-about to make some fateful life-altering mistake,” and continues to explain, “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.”
Timing Is Everything For Swift!

Roughly a little more than a month before Swifties will have the opportunity to get to know themselves better with the help of “Midnights,” Swift gifted her fanbase and vinyl collectors everywhere with a post on her socials detailing a bonus element to the LP!
In the video, which has been posted on her TikTok and Instagram accounts, Swift explains “Midnights” will be available with four different covers, and when each back cover is arranged together, a clock exists!
Swift shows she is just as excited as all of her fans when she steps back to admire the resulting masterpiece!
In addition to the four different covers for the album, Target will also be offering an exclusive edition of the album on lavender-colored vinyl and will also have a CD edition available as well.
“Midnights” will be released on October 21st!
