Arriving with much fanfare late Thursday night, Midnights is the latest studio effort from Taylor Swift.

The global superstar’s 10th studio album to date and the follow-up to 2020’s Evermore, Midnights is described officially as “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 – the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout Taylor’s life.”

The build-up to its release saw Swift tease various songs and album news via TikTok, culminating in the official release of the full record across streaming platforms and a variety of physical editions.

Accompanying the album’s release was a music video for the song “Anti-Hero,” which Taylor Swift directed:

Stylistically, Midnights isn’t a straight-ahead indie/folk record like Swift’s 2020 albums Folklore and Evermore, though it does feature producer Jack Antonoff (who was heavily involved on those two LPs) on 11 of its 13 tracks.

So far, the album is receiving exceptionally strong reviews from critics, praising both Swift’s songwriting, vocals and the production of the album.
