The news comes just days after the eleven-time GRAMMY winner broke streaming, physical and vinyl album sales around the world with her latest project, Midnights, which has become the fastest-selling album of her career.
Midnights arrived on October 21 via Republic Records, and features 13 tracks, including her current single “Anti-Hero” as well as fan-favorite hits such as “Bejeweled,” “Lavender Haze,” “Vigilante Shit,” and more.
“Midnights, the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life, will be out October 21. Meet me at Midnight,” Swift previously shared of the album. “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.”
The project follows her 2020 albums Folklore and Evermore.
In addition, Swift is currently in the midst of re-recording her first six albums, from her 2006 self-titled debut to 2017’s Reputation, after the masters to those projects were sold when Scooter Braun purchased the singer-songwriter’s former record label, Big Machine Label Group.
Swift’s re-recordings of Fearless (Taylor’s Version) and Red (Taylor’s Version) are already available to stream on all streaming platforms.
