Taylor Swift: Singer Taylor Swift surprised her fans when she sprang seven more tracks just three hours after the release of her album Midnight. Before the release she had been teasing her fans of a “special very chaotic surprise”.
Called Midnights (3 a.m. Edition), the extended version of the LP features seven additional songs. Swift promised that something “special” and “very chaotic” was coming before she delivered these “3 a.m. tracks.”
Several of the new songs were co-written and produced by her previous collaborator Aaron Dessner.
“Surprise! I think of Midnights as a complete concept album, with those 13 songs forming a full picture of the intensities of that mystifying, mad hour,” Swift announced on Instagram. “However! There were other songs we wrote on our journey to find that magic 13.”
She added, “I’m calling them ‘3 a.m. tracks.’ Lately I’ve been loving the feeling of sharing more of our creative process with you, like we do with From The Vault tracks. So it’s 3 a.m. and I’m giving them to you now.”
Besides the album’s original closer “Mastermind,” the seven new songs included “The Great War,” “High Infidelity,” and “Would’ve, Could’ve, Should’ve.” All these were co-written and produced by Dessner. The other tracks — co-produced by Jack Antonoff — include “Bigger Than the Whole Sky,” Paris,” “Glitch,” and “Dear Reader.” Mark Spears and Sam Dew were the co-writers of “Glitch”, with Spears as a co-producer.
Ever since Swift posted a teaser showing a calendar with the word “Manifest” written on it, fans were expecting Swift to come out with a sister album or project.
All week, Swift has been revealing lyrics from her new album on billboards with Spotify around the world.
