The release of this album would mark his return to original music in two years.
“We stayed up in love and in fear, in confusion and crying,” Taylor wrote in her post announcing the album. “We look at the walls and drink until they respond. We squirm in our self-made cages and pray that we are not, at this moment, about to make some fateful, life-changing mistake. This is a collection of music written in the middle of the night, a journey through terrors and sweet dreams. The floor we walk and the demons we face. For all of us who wandered round and round and decided to keep our flashlights on and search hoping that maybe when the clock strikes 12… we’ll find each other. Midnights, the stories of 13 sleepless nights spread throughout my life, will be out on October 21. Meet me at midnight.”
Since 2020, Taylor has focused on the “Taylor’s Version” series of re-recordings from his Big Machine catalogue.
