The last year or so has seen Taylor Swift busy releasing re-recorded versions of her old albums - but fans will be happy to learn there's a collection of new material on the way.
Swift made the surprise announcement at the MTV VMAs last night, where she won three awards - and where she was famously upstaged by Kanye West all those years ago.
During her acceptance speech for Video of the Year (which she won for 'All Too Well'), she teased the announcement by telling the crowd: "My brand new album comes out October 21st. I will tell you more at midnight."
She later posted further details on social media at midnight, revealing that 'Midnights' is "the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life."
The full statement revealed:
"We lie awake in love and in fear, in turmoil and in tears. We stare at walls and drink until they speak back. We twist in our self-made cages and pray that we aren’t – right this minute – about to make some fateful life-altering mistake.
This is 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. For all of us who have tossed and turned and decided to keep the lanterns lit and go searching – hoping that just maybe, when the clock strikes twelve… we’ll meet ourselves.
Midnights, the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life, will be out October 21. Meet me at midnight."
'Midnights' will be the follow-up to 'Evermore', which was released five months after 'Folklore' in 2020.
