The good thing for Taylor Swift fans may be the pop star does not have any shortage of songs headed their way.
While accepting the award for Video of the entire year at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, the pop star used the chance to announce her forthcoming record. I thought it may be a great moment to inform you that my brand-new album happens Oct. 21, she said, promising her fans, I’ll let you know more at nighttime. Then at nighttime, she posted the cover art for the album, titled Midnights, on Instagram, having a photo of her wearing blue sparkly eyeshadow and red lipstick while sparking a lighter, in addition to a second shot of her holding her head in her submit a candlight room. Swift wrote alongside the image, Midnights, the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my entire life, will undoubtedly be out October 21. Meet me at nighttime.
She also shared a passage superimposed on the second image that read, We lie awake in love and in fear, in turmoil and in tears. We stare at walls and drink until they speak back. We twist inside our self-made cages and pray that people arentright this minuteabout to create some fateful life-altering mistake. Swift added, “It is a assortment of music written in the center of the night time, a journey through terrors and sweet dreams. The floors we pace and the demons we face. For all those who’ve tossed and turned and made a decision to keep carefully the lanterns lit and go searchinghoping that just maybe, once the clock trikes twelve…we’ll meet ourselves.”
While Midnights appears to be an album filled with completely new material, many fans felt that Swift dropped a lot of Easter eggs through the VMAs that she’d be releasing a re-recorded version of her 2017 album Reputation next. During the last 2 yrs, the singer has released her very own versions of 2008’s Fearless and 2012’s Red in order to reclaim her music from her former manager Scooter Braun who purchased her masters from her former record label, Big Machine Records, in 2019. In her acceptance speech, Swift said that winning the award was a sign we did something right. For most of her listeners, that line immediately rang a bell as it’s much like one she repeats on the Reputation track Call It WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE, where she says, I did so a very important factor right.
However the bigger clue appears to have been her choice in sparkly attire for the evening which resembled a dress she wore in the music video for Look EVERYTHING YOU Made Me Do, because of the earrings which she seemed to wear an ugly version of to the VMAs. Swift also gave a glance at her final outfit for the awards show on TikTok set to the Blackpink song Pink Venom, that was interpreted to become a mention of the snake imagery used throughout Reputation. Among others noted that Midnights‘ release date also happens to fall on Kim Kardashian‘s birthday, a female who was simply rumored to function as inspiration behind a lot of Reputation and whom nearly all those snake emojis were leveled at.
