Taylor Swift is just weeks away from dropping a whole new album – ‘Midnights’, which will be her tenth studio album! Here’s every glimmer of information we know, from release date to track list.
In the midst of all her album re-releases, Taylor Swift made the surprise announcement that she’s got yet another album coming, a brand new creation she’s been working on through all her sleepless nights.
Taylor said the new album 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.”
'Midnights' will most likely be another pop album after fans noticed it was listed under the genre on Target. This comes after fans spotted it was described as 'rock' on Apple Music shortly after Tay announced the new album, so who knows what to expect?!

Taylor Swift’s ‘Midnights’ album is coming out on 21 October! She made the announcement on 28 August during the MTV VMAs while accepting the award for Best Video for ‘All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version)’.
The release date is fast approaching and Tay's already confirmed the first single – also getting a music video – from the album will be 'Anti-Hero'.

Yes! During Taylor's final Midnights Mayhem With Me video she revealed that track 4, ‘Snow On The Beach’, features none other than Lana Del Rey – the internet was sent reeling! We can't wait to see what these two ladies have in store for us with this one...
Fans also have a theory The 1975 will feature on Taylor’s album after the band’s manager posted and liked a tweet about a possible collab.
Jamie posted a photo of Taylor wearing the band’s merchandise alongside: “October soon come,” and went on to like a tweet asking: “Jamie are u confirming a the 1975 x Taylor Swift collab [sic].”
When Taylor officially announced ‘Midnights’ at the VMAs she dropped an Instagram post hours later detailing where the inspiration for the album came from.
She said: “We like 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.”
Luckily for us Swifties, a few weeks after the initial announcement of 'Midnights', Taylor released a video showing behind-the-scenes footage of herself making TS10.
She shared a montage to Instagram and TikTok that showed Taylor slaving away at her songwriting, hitting the studio, and producing the record with none other than Jack Antonoff – whose influence on the pop star's albums dates back to '1989'.
She simply captioned the tantalising clip: "The making of Midnights."
Taylor’s new songs are inspired by the ‘terror and dreams’ she’s experienced at night, telling the stories ‘of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life’.
