Swift bagged the top honors at MTV's annual Video Music Awards for the 10-minute version of her 2012 breakup song "All Too Well.” Taylor also won best direction and best longform video for a total of three prizes during the VMAs. During her acceptance speech, Swift surprised fans when she announced that she would be dropping a new album soon.
"I had sort of made up my mind that if you were going to be this generous and give us this, I thought it might be a fun moment to tell you that my brand-new album comes out October 21st. And I will tell you more at midnight," Taylor said.
The 32-year-old megastar shared more details and revealed the album art for her 10th studio album on her social media channels, less than an hour after the VMAs show ended. Swift’s newest album is not a re-release, but will feature all new original work.
"Midnights, the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life, will be out October 21. Meet me at midnight," Swift captioned her Instagram post.

According to Swift, Midnights is a collection of songs which she wrote in the middle of the night. The album will be composed of 13 tracks.
Taylor describes the album as "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 maye, when the clock strikes twelve... we'll meet ourselves."
Pre-orders for the album Midnights are available on Taylor Swift's website. The album is set for release on Friday, Oct. 21, 2022.
