As the clock strikes midnight, another song Taylor Swift song title arrives. Swift took to social media to share the remaining track titles as she gets closer to the release of her highly anticipated 10th album Midnights.
This time on “Midnights Mayhem With Me,” Swift drew the lottery ball for Track One, which will be titled “Lavender Haze” followed by one for Track Five, which is “You’re On Your Own, Kid.”
She explained the meaning behind “Lavender Haze” in a separate video, noting, “I happened upon the phrase ‘lavender haze’ when I was watching Mad Men. And I looked it up because I thought it sounded cool, and it turns out that it’s a common phrase used in the ’50s where they would just describe being in love. Like, if you were in the lavender haze, then that meant that you were in that all-encompassing love glow — and I thought that was really beautiful.”
After Swift announced “Tonight we mayhem til the morning,” she continued to unveil more song titles, with Track Ten being dubbed “Labyrinth,” Track 12 being titled “Sweet Nothing,” and Track Four is called “Snow on the Beach.” That last title, which will feature a collaboration with Lana Del Rey, wraps Swift’s track list announcement, giving us a full view of the LP.
It’s now only two weeks until Midnights’ release day on Oct. 21. Today’s announcements follow Swift’s previous TikTok episodes, where earlier this week she shared Track Nine, “Bejeweled” and Track 11, “Karma.” Other song titles are “Anti-Hero,” “Maroon,” “Midnight Rain,” Question…?” “Vigilante Shit,” and “Mastermind.”
Swifties have been buzzing for more information on the album since Swift announced Midnights at the VMAs at the end of August. Beyond the track titles, Swift — ever the merchandise and marketing expert — also teased a series of four vinyl pressings of Midnights that combine to make a clock design. Based on a “Making of Midnights” video she shared in September, it appears Jack Antonoff, who has worked with Swift on all of her albums since 1989, is returning for Midnights as well.
