Taylor Swift has wowed fans with a surprise appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards today, where she made a huge career announcement.
The 32-year-old music megastar won the final award of the night, Video of the Year, where she dropped the major news she’d be releasing a brand new album on October 21.
The multi-Grammy winner told the audience she’d share more information “at midnight”, which ended up being a clue to the name of the album.
Taking to social media when the clock struck 12, Swift wrote that Midnights - her upcoming 10th studio album - would feature 13 songs that will tell stories of “13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life.”
Midnights, the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life, will be out October 21. Meet me at midnight.
She added: “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.
“This is a collection of music written in the middle of the night, a journey through terrors and sweet dreams.”
Swift, who picked up the award for her music video All Too Well: The Short Film, said in her acceptance speech: “We wouldn’t have been able to make this short film if it weren’t for you, the fans...
“Because I wouldn’t be able to re-record my albums if it weren’t for you. You emboldened me to do that.
“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.”
Shortly after her announcement, Swift’s song backgrounds on Spotify switched to images of a clock counting to midnight.
Swift has been busy re-recording her past albums in recent years, but hasn’t released brand new music since evermore in late 2020.
