Taylor Swift will release her tenth studio album ‘Midnights’ next month - here’s what we know about potential collaborations on the project so far.

Taylor Swift’s ‘Midnights’ era is fast approaching as the songstress announced she’ll be releasing her tenth studio album in a matter of weeks.

Swifties have already been sharing theories about the upcoming project, from Easter eggs dropped by the superstar herself, to which artists could be featured on her new album.

Taylor described her surprise album as “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.”

The 1975 x Taylor Swift

Rumours first began swirling a few days ago that The 1975 will feature on Taylor’s new album after the band’s manager Jamie Oborne shared a photo of Tay wearing the band’s merch alongside the caption: “October soon come.”

Jamie later fuelled the rumours by liking a tweet which asked: “Jamie are u confirming a the 1975 x Taylor Swift collab [sic].”

Lorde x Taylor Swift

Some people reckon Lorde could be jumping on a track with Taylor after she signed off her latest email on her bulletin with: “L XOOOO", which fans have referenced the extra ‘O’s to mean OO:OO = midnight.

Selena Gomez x Taylor Swift

Swifties are hoping to see Taylor’s longtime BFF Selena Gomez as a feature on her new album after a photo of the besties appeared in a frame in the background of her promo picture for ‘Midnights’.

Eagle-eyed fans couldn’t help but zoom in on the pic, hoping that this meant the Sel x Tay collab we’ve all been waiting for would finally be dropping.
