Here’s everything you need to know about Taylor Swift’s Midnights
The full track list for Taylor Swift’s hotly anticipated tenth studio album will be revealed in the so-called Midnights Mayhems with Me, from September 21 until October 7. Meanwhile, her Instagram caption read What keeps you up at night? Only 13 more sleepless nights before Midnight (and its 13 stories), while Midnight’s artwork on Spotify (artwork which has been branded as aesthetically similar to Taylor Swift) features Taylor Swift with smokey-eyes and a bob-cut watching a flame being lit with a pocket lighter.
In the IG post that introduced her latest song Midnights on August 29, Taylor left a caption that said: Midnights, stories of thirteen sleepless nights scattered throughout my life, will be out October 21. Meet me at midnight. Given the personal touch that Taylor adds to all of her songs, including her debut, we can count on Midnights being her deepest yet!
Taylor Swift took to Instagram to share the inspiration behind Lavender Haze, the first track on her new album Midnights. In a video, Swift credits her six-year relationship with actor Joe Alwyn and Jon Hamm’s Mad Men show as inspiration: ” When I was watching Mad Men, I randomly came across the phrase Lavender Haze, and I looked it up because I thought it sounded cool. On Midnights, it’s Track 1 and I found it while watching Mad Men. This was a phrase commonly used in the ’50s to describe being in love, like if you were in a lavender haze, then that meant you were in love. And I thought that was really beautiful. And, I believe that’s a common thing for a lot of people now, not just like public figures, because we live in the era of social media and if the world finds out that you’re in love with somebody, they’re going to weigh in on it. Like my relationship for six years [with Joe Alwyn], we had to dodge some pretty weird rumors, tabloid stuff, and we just ignore it. And so, this song is sort of about the act of ignoring that stuff to protect the real stuff. I really hope you like it.
Track 3, titled Anti-Hero is one of Taylor Swift’s favorite songs she’s written so far in her career. It also offers some insight into how she deals with self-image and an over-inflated lifestyle. She had said: This song really is a real guided tour through all the things I tend to hate about myself. We all hate things about ourselves and it’s all of those aspects of the things we dislike and like about ourselves that we have to come to terms with if we’re gonna be this person. So, yeah, I like Anti-Hero a lot because I think it’s really honest.
Swifties can definitely expect more behind-the-scenes videos from Taylor Swift in the days to come as the countdown for Midnights begins.
