Taylor Swift stokes fresh fan speculation with latest ‘Midnights’ song title reveal

Taylor Swift has revealed the title of a new song from her upcoming album ‘Midnights’ that has sent fans buzzing due to its nod to a well-known fan theory.

The singer-songwriter has been sharing song titles from the record in piecemeal via her TikTok series ‘Midnights Mayhem With Me’, where she randomly picks out tracks to reveal by spinning a cage of balls and picking one out.

In the latest clip, which you can view below, she shared the title of the 11th song on the tracklist: ‘Karma’ – which is the title fans speculated she had given to an unreleased album she recorded and shelved in 2016, and some believed that she would release this year.

“Been excited to announce this one,” Swift wrote in the TikTok’s caption. It follows previous song titles ‘Mastermind’, ‘Vigilante Shit’, ‘Question…?’ and ‘Midnight Rain’, ‘Maroon’, ‘Anti-Hero’ and ‘Bejweled’. See what we know of the tracklist below.

‘Midnights’ is scheduled for release on October 21. Swift announced the album in August while accepting Video of the Year at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards ceremony, outlining the record with a message to fans shortly afterwards.

“This is a collection of music written in the middle of the night, a journey through terrors and sweet dreams,” Swift wrote at the time. “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.”

Swift recently said that the song ‘Anti-Hero’ on the new record is one of her favourite songs she’s ever written. “I really don’t think I’ve delved this far into my insecurities in this detail before,” she said in a video.

Swift’s frequent collaborator Jack Antonoff worked on the record, which is her 10th. The singer-songwriter will release the album through four distinctly covered vinyl pressings including the ‘Jade Green’, ‘Blood Moon’ and ‘Mahogany’ editions as well as a ‘Lavender’ version of the album. The back covers for the different vinyl versions will come together to make a clockface.

Swift’s most recent albums of new material arrived in 2020, with ‘Folklore’ and ‘Evermore’. Last year, she released the first two of her re-recorded albums, ‘Fearless (Taylor’s Version)’ and ‘Red (Taylor’s Version)’.

Scooter Braun recently gave an interview in which he revealed his “regret” over how he handled the sale of Swift’s master recordings following his company’s acquisition of Swift’s old label Big Machine in 2019. “I learned an important lesson from that. I think a lot of things got lost in translation. I think that when you have a conflict with someone, it’s very hard to resolve it if you’re not willing to have a conversation,” he said on the NPR show The Limits With Jay Williams.

  1. Track One
