Taylor Swift Announces Midnights Tour Is Going to Happen

When appearing on ‘The Graham Norton] Show’, which aired Friday night, October 28, the singer also reflected on re-recording her catalog since losing the rights to her music from her first six albums after switching record labels.

AceShowbizTaylor Swift has exciting news for Swifties. One week after releasing his 10th studio album “Midnights”, the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter announced that a tour is “going to happen.”

The 32-year-old broke the news on “The Graham Norton Show”, which aired Friday night, October 28. “We will sometime soonish. It’s going to happen,” she said after being asked by the host. “We will do it and it will be great.”

Noting that she is “thrilled” over the response to her latest record, Taylor added, “But I do think it’s a little accusatory when people say I broke Spotify.” She then emphasized, “It was my gorgeous fans that broke Spotify!”

During the interview, Taylor also reflected on re-recording her catalog since losing the rights to her music from her first six albums after switching record labels. “I am thankful to radio stations across the U.S. that will only play my new versions. It is so heartwarming,” she shared. “It is something that I care about but don’t expect other people to care about it… It is a lot of work, but it is fun, and I can’t believe people have got behind it the way they have.”

Announced at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards, Taylor’s latest offering “Midnights” has sold more than 800,000 copies in the U.S. through its first day across all available formats, according to Luminate. It originally consisted of 13 songs, but the musician has unleashed seven bonus tracks in the “Midnights – 3am edition”.

Speaking of the album, which only features a guest appearance from Lana Del Rey (“Snow on the Beach”), Taylor wrote on Instagram, “Midnights is a wild ride of an album and I couldn’t be happier that my co pilot on this adventure was @jackantonoff. He’s my friend for life (presumptuous I know but I stand by it) and we’ve been making music together for nearly a decade.”

“HOWEVER… this is our first album we’ve done with just the two of us as main collaborators. We’d been toying with ideas and had written a few things we loved, but Midnights actually really coalesced and flowed out of us when our partners (both actors) did a film together in Panama,” she added. “Jack and I found ourselves back in New York, alone, recording every night, staying up late and exploring old memories and midnights past.”

“We were so lucky to also work with our brilliant collaborators @sam_dew, @sounwave, Lana Del Rey, @jahaansweet, @keanubeats, William Bowery, and @zoeisabellakravitz. @sharp_stick was our excellent engineer. The wonderful and wise @bethgarrabrant took the album photographs,” Taylor went on raving. “Midnights is a collage of intensity, highs and lows and ebbs and flows. Life can be dark, starry, cloudy, terrifying, electrifying, hot, cold, romantic or lonely. Just like Midnights. Which is out now.”
