“You guys, I’m just so proud of what we made and I know with every second of this moment, we wouldn’t have been able to make this short film if it wasn’t for you, the fans,” she continued. “Because I wouldn’t be able to re-record my albums if it weren’t for you…You emboldened me to do that.”
Swift ended the speech by saying, “I had sort of made up my mind that it might be a fun moment to tell you…my brand new album comes out October 21st. And I will tell you more at midnight.”
Once the clock struck midnight, Swift took to her Instagram page and teased her upcoming tenth studio album by sharing a glimpse at the cover art and tracklist. “Midnights, the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life, will be out October 21. Meet me at midnight,” she wrote in the caption.
