Taylor Swift has taken the world by storm (yet again) with her latest album, Midnights. Packed with love-struck ballads, promises of revenge, and beats that will get anyone moving, this is an album that everyone will love. With the addition of a surprise 3 AM release of 7 bonus songs, Taylor and Midnights are keeping everyone on the edge of their seats.  

Taylor widens her horizons by collaborating with Lana Del Rey for the first time. Lana’s soft backing vocals are the perfect addition to Snow On The Beach. Zoë Kravitz is listed as a co-writer on Lavender Haze. Taylor also wrote Sweet Nothings with her longtime boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, including the soft and beautiful lyrics “On the way home I wrote a poem. You say ‘What a mind’. This happens all the time”. Dylan O’Brien is also featured on the album as a drummer on Snow On The Beach

While some are criticizing Taylor by saying every song sounds the same, I would argue that it is very difficult to confuse the upbeat pop hit of Bejeweled with the dark and twisty layers of Vigilante Shit. This is simply her most cohesive album yet. While Midnights is a much different sound than her previous albums of Folklore and Evermore, it only goes to prove the impressive range of Taylor’s extensive catalog.  

Unsurprisingly, the songs have already worked their way into fans’ hearts due to Taylor’s highly relatable lyrics. “It’s me, hi. I’m the problem, it’s me,” from Anti-Hero, “You’re on your own, kid. You always have been,” from You’re On Your Own, Kid, and “Every single thing I touch becomes sick with sadness,” from Bigger Than the Whole Sky are currently the most talked about lyrics from the album. Taylor’s ability to take her own experiences and turn them into words that so many people can relate to is truly remarkable. 

Midnights is now available everywhere.
