There are still 22 days till Midnights. On the other hand, to paraphrase Ms. Swift: “Honestly, sweetie, who’s counting? Swift, keeping with her new habit of using a vintage bingo ball cage to announce the title of a new song off her next album, on Thursday night announced the fifth track’s title, “Maroon.”
We now have knowledge of five tracks on the album thanks to this one: “Question…?
,” “Vigilante Shit,” “Mastermind,” and, as of earlier this week, “Midnight Rain,” which she said is track six.
Following last year’s Red (Taylor’s Version) and Fearless (Taylor’s Version), this is Taylor Swift’s eleventh studio album. Not only is this her first album of new material since 2020, when she released Folklore and Evermore, but it also marks the beginning of her new label.
A teaser clip titled “The making of Midnights” revealed that she collaborated with Jack Antonoff, and we also know that she will release four different-styled sorts of vinyl records that together create a clock, with one of them being a lavender Target exclusive.
“This is a collection of songs written in the middle of the night, a voyage through terrors and lovely dreams,” she remarked upon launching the album.
As she put it, “the story of 13 restless nights spread throughout my life,” the album is “the floors we pace and the demons we encounter.”
