Update: On Thursday night (October 6th), Taylor released extra "middle of the night" episodes of "Midnights Mayhem With Me" and she has now revealed the tracklist in its entirety. Keep scrolling to see the full Midnights tracklist.
In September, Taylor Swift made an exciting announcement via TikTok. The singer revealed that she would be starting a series called "Midnights Mayhem With Me," in which she slowly and randomly reveals the tracklisting for her forthcoming album Midnights.
"I'm going to be using this technologically advanced device," Swift said as she pointed to a rotary cage full of ping pong balls with different numbers on them, "to help me allow fate to decide exactly what track titles I'm going to be announcing and in what order."
Since then, Taylor has revealed three new song titles. The first track to be announced was the album's final track. "Track 13 because of course," Swift smiled. She then picked up a retro landline telephone and revealed the track name into it: "Mastermind."
Following this format, Taylor picked the next ping pong ball on September 23rd. Featuring a cameo from her cat Meredith, the singer revealed that track 8 was titled "Vigilante Shit." Much to fans' delight, this marks the first time a Taylor Swift song title contains a curse word.
For the next installment of the series, Taylor chose the number 7 and revealed that the song's title is "Question...?" Fans ran with the name in the comments writing things like, "I have many questions," and "QUESTION...? WHEN IS THE LEAD SINGLE COMING?" Another fan wrote, "The real question is what happened to my sleep schedule?" in reference to Taylor consistently dropping new information about the album at midnight. That and the album's title also caused fans to falsely speculate that she would be headlining this year's Super Bowl Halftime Show. Over the weekend, it was confirmed that Rihanna had landed the gig.
In the following weeks, Swift revealed that track 2 is titled "Maroon," and track 6 is titled "Midnight Rain." She also revealed that track 3, called "Anti-Hero," is one of her favorite songs she's ever written.
Swift announced her tenth studio album during her acceptance speech at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards on August 28th. Midnights is scheduled to drop on October 21st.
