A brief history of Taylor Swift’s midnights, in honor of her new album Midnights

"Midnight" became a Swiftian songwriting motif long earlier than the Grammy winner introduced her tenth album

Instead of losing any other re-recording of one among her previous albums, Taylor Swift stunned enthusiasts on Sunday by means of pronouncing her subsequent release will in fact be her 10th authentic record.

As she wrote on Twitter, Midnights is a idea album proposing “the testimonies of 13 sleepless nights scattered in the course of my existence.”

“We lie awake in love and in worry, in turmoil and in tears. We stare at walls and drink until they communicate returned. 


We twist in our self-made cages and pray that we aren’t—proper this minute—about to make some fateful lifestyles-changing mistake,” reads the album announcement.

“This is a group of song written inside the middle of the night, a adventure through terrors and sweet dreams. The floors we pace and the demons we face. 

For everyone who have tossed and grew to become and decided to preserve the lanterns lit and go searching—hoping that simply maybe, while the clock strikes twelve…we’ll meet ourselves.”

Swift’s maximum current midnights have been extra tumultuous and haunted: the widowed protagonist of “The Last Great American Dynasty” on folklore “was seen from time to time/pacing the rocks.

Just add “middle of the night” to the listing of ideas that Swift can declare cultural possession of, along pink scarves, the month of August, not being capable of come to the smartphone proper now (why? ’Cause she’s useless). 

The age 22, New Year’s Day, the wide variety 13, and the complete season of autumn, which has visible seven (and one re-document) of her album releases, along with the approaching Midnights.

(“Midnight” will presumably be harder to copyright than “this sick beat.”) Specifically, the brand new album comes out on October 21, 2022. Start sprucing the Grammys (or at least the VMAs) now!
