The way in which Taylor Swift typically leaves her fans in a state of wonder over her next career move could be described as… mayhem!
Earlier this morning, ‘Swifties’ learned the word ‘mayhem’ is indeed on Ms. Swift’s radar with the revelation of yesterday’s TikTok announcement.
The Blast has frequently been keeping tabs on Swift’s new easter eggs on social media which pertain to her upcoming tenth album, “Midnights.” Yesterday we covered TikTok joining in on the fun when the social network teased a Swift-related announcement that beckoned Swifties to flock to the “Back To December” singer’s TikTok account.

In one of the most notable announcements in pop music lately, Swift, 32, affectionately parted with the “Red (Taylor’s Version)” era on August 28th.
Swift took the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards when she won a “moon man” for Video Of The Year with the “All Too Well” short film. In her acceptance speech, Swift revealed her new album wasn’t only on the way, but she would be divulging more details about “Midnights” at midnight on social media!
According to the tweet Swift shared per our report, the album contains 13 tracks, which would center around “The stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life” and the album would be released on October 21st.
In the subsequent weeks since the announcement, Swift has shared multiple TikToks related to the album, including a revelation surrounding the back cover of the LP. Her first TikTok revealed there would be three additional versions of the “Midnights” cover, and they would reveal a clock when put all together. (via The Blast)
TikTok’s Cryptic Swift Related Announcement Revealed!
@taylorswift Midnights tracklist reveal!! Introducing: Midnights Mayhem with Me 🌌😎 #TSmidnighTS #SwiftTok #MidnightsMayhemWithMe ♬ original sound – Taylor Swift
As we previously mentioned, TikTok’s Twitter account teased an announcement yesterday morning which kept Swifties guessing all day long!
The tweet read, “meet us at @taylorswift13’s TikTok account at midnight” and also included an emoji of a clock.
The stroke of midnight eventually arrived, and Swifties were then greeted by a TikTok featuring Swift sitting alongside a cage featuring 13 ping-pong balls inside.
Swift went on to explain that each of the ping-pong balls was numbered and it was up to “fate” to decide which track title name would be revealed once she cranked the lever on the cage.
The big winner was (naturally) track 13, which Swift then revealed is called “Mastermind.”
As she announced the title of track 13, Swift picked up a phone and spoke into the receiver! Could the phone and her action be yet another easter egg Swifties will soon uncover in the coming weeks? Only time will tell!
Swift also cheekily acknowledged her love of “sharing cryptic clues and easter eggs when giving [fans] information about new music…” she went on to say, “I’m not here to deny that, but I am here to defy that” and will continue to do so in a series she has decided to call “Midnights Mayhem With Me!”
Given our girl’s keen sense of self-awareness and love for keeping her fans guessing, there’s a very good chance Swifties may find out more easter eggs related to “Midnights” within the next month until its release! “Midnights” will be released on October 21st!
