Taylor Swift was awarded with the night’s biggest honor at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards in Newark, New Jersey on August 28, 2022. Swift’s “All Too Well” beat out Drake’s “Way 2 Sexy” and Doja Cat’s “Women” to take home the “Video of the Year” moon person. As she accepted the award, the chart-topping star revealed that her fans would receive more information regarding her next studio album at midnight. Thankfully, the MTV Video Music Awards honoree is a woman of her word.
Taylor Swift has announced that she will release her tenth studio album, Midnights, on October 21, 2022. As Swift explains, the album will tell the “stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout [her] life.”
“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 cages and pray that we aren’t – right this minute – about to make some fateful life-altering mistake,” she wrote.
“Thi 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.”
Taylor Swift’s Midnights will serve as the follow-up to her 2020 release, Evermore. Featuring Haim, Bon Iver and the National, the project moved more than a million copies in its first week. Setting the stage for her next album, Midnights will feed her fan base yet again this fall. Check out the cover below.
