Taylor Swift shares details of ‘Midnights’ album
Later, taking to her social media account, Taylor Swift confirmed the title of her upcoming album as ‘Midnights’, which will be her official 10th studio album. It will include “stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout” her life. She also dropped the cover art of the album with a note talking about her inspiration behind it.
“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 in our self-made caged and pray that we aren’t – right this minute – about to make some fateful life-altering mistake. This is 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. 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,” she added to it.
