Taylor Swift – Midnights (New Vinyl) (Special Edition) (Moonstone Blue Vinyl)
New sealed copy. Special edition on moonstone blue marbled vinyl.
Midnights is the tenth studio album by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, released on October 21, 2022, via Republic Records. Announced at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards, the album marks Swift's first body of new work since her 2020 albums Folklore and Evermore. Midnights is a concept album about nocturnal contemplation, written and produced by Swift with Jack Antonoff as the main collaborator.
The album was inspired by "13 sleepless nights" of Swift's life. She adopted a glamorous visual aesthetic for the album, drawing from the 1970s fashion and art. Eschewing the alternative folk sound of Folklore and Evermore, Swift experimented with electronica, synth-pop, dream pop and chill-out music styles in Midnights, employing subtle grooves, vintage synthesizers, drum machine and hip hop rhythms. Its subject matter contains confessional yet cryptic lyrics, discussing self-criticism, self-assurance, insecurity, anxiety, and insomnia.
After the negligible promotion of her previous studio albums, Swift returned to her traditional album roll-out with Midnights. She unveiled the album's track list on a TikTok series called Midnights Mayhem with Me from September 21 to October 7, 2022, and revealed a Lana Del Rey feature on the fourth track, "Snow on the Beach". Seven bonus tracks were surprise released on October 21, followed by music videos for "Anti-Hero" and "Bejeweled".
Midnights was met with widespread acclaim from music critics, who praised its restrained production, candid songwriting, and vocal cadences. Breaking the Spotify record for the most single-day streams for an album, Midnights was also a major commercial success across all formats of music consumption. In the United States, it became 2022's fastest-selling and best-selling album and logged the largest vinyl sales week of the 21st century. Elsewhere, it has so far topped the charts in Australia, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
