For hints, every of the Easter eggs have been meticulously scrutinized. Pressed and sorted into valuable variations, the marbling vinyl. The hashtags for fans are ready.

A new Taylor Swift album is due soon.

Swift’s 10th studio album, “Midnights,” was released at midnight on Friday. It is the most recent in a series of exceptionally busy years for Swift, who at 32 is still one of the most influential musical forces. A voyage through terrors and pleasant dreams, she described the 13-track “Midnights” as “the story of 13 restless nights spread around my life” and “a collection of music written in the middle of the night” when she first unveiled it two months ago. (Real Swifties, or really anyone who has given Swift’s public persona even a passing attention over the years, recognize her as fascination with the number 13.)

It is Swift’s fifth studio album in less than two years. Her previous albums include “Folklore,” “Evermore,” and the first two rerecordings of her early albums, “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)” and “Red (Taylor’s Version),” which she undertook after her previous record label was sold without her knowledge. In 2021, “Folklore” took home the Grammy Award for Album of the Year.

In a way, “Midnights” represents Swift’s return to the pop pipeline following her detours over the previous two years. She was right when she said that many of the lyrics seem like nighttime reflections on the stresses of life, aging, and the nature of love. She sings: “Anti-Hero,” the third song on the album.

I have a tendency to age but never become wiser.
My evenings turn become my afternoons
The graveyard shift is when my depression is at work.
Everybody I’ve ghosted is standing in the room.

The majority of the songs on the album were written and recorded by her longterm partner Jack Antonoff, and a large portion of it was done at both their Brooklyn home studio and the Jimi Hendrix-founded Electric Lady Studios in Greenwich Village.

Lana Del Rey sings on the song ““Snow on the Beach.”” as a featured guest. In the credits, a few other intriguing names also appear. Along with Swift, Antonoff, Mark Anthony Spears (also known as the producer Sounwave), Jahaan Sweet, and Sam Dew, the actress Zo Kravitz, who has been making an album with Antonoff, is named as one of the song’s six songwriters (along with Swift, Antonoff, and Sam Dew). Fans are aware of Swift and Kravitz’s strong friendship because she once served as an uncredited assistant during Kravitz’s remote picture shoot for The New York Times Magazine during the epidemic.

Swift also co-wrote the song “Sweet Nothing” with a man named William Bowery, whose name appeared in the “Folklore” credits and who Swift subsequently revealed was an pseudonym for her boyfriend, actor Joe Alwyn. She sings on the song, “They say the end is coming/up Everyone’s to something.” I find myself rushing home to hear your tender words.

“Midnights” has a great possibility of being one of the top sellers of the year. This time, Swift’s marketing strategy included a sequence of Cardinals upset Saints by scoring 22 points in less than two minutes to address their scoring issues.
