The only thing better than being a Swiftie is fangirling among fellow Swifties.
In case you didn't know, Taylor Swift is set to release her tenth studio album titled Midnights, this Oct. 21, 6 PM, Philippine time. The upcoming release is a big one for Swifties, as it will be her first time to release new music since December 2021's evermore.
She's been releasing rerecordings of her tracks since.
Taylor has said that Midnights is "all about 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life." Departing from her usual pandemic surprise drops, Swift has also been unveiling the track list one song at a time through the TikTok series Midnights Mayhem With Me. Here's the full tracklist:
- Lavender Haz.
- Snow on the Beach ft. Lana Del Rey
- You're on Your Own, Kid
- Midnight Rain
- Vigilante S---
- Sweet Nothing
