It’s almost midnight. Taylor Swift’s tenth studio album Midnightsarrives on Oct. 21, and Taylor has done a good job of drumming up anticipation for the album. First, she announced the new record at the VMAs on Aug. 28. More recently, she’s launched a TikTok series, Midnights Mayhem With Me, where the Grammy-winning singer reveals one song from the 13-song tracklist every few days using a bingo machine and numbered balls.
Taylor has yet to release a single (or even a snippet, for that matter) in the lead-up to the album’s release, so fans are left to piece together the album’s sound from her few statements and mysterious TikToks.
“This is a collection of music written in the middle of the night, a journey through terrors and sweet dreams,” Taylor said in a statement about the LP when she announced it. “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.”
Here’s everything Taylor has revealed about the full Midnights tracklist.
Choosing TikTok as a platform for teasing a time-themed album was a smart choice for Taylor. It also makes sense, considering how many people are counting down the days, hours, and seconds until Midnights’ release.
