Artist Taylor Swift dropped her tenth album, called Midnights, on October 21st and immediately started breaking records. Entertainment Weekly states,“Midnights became Spotify's most-streamed album in a single day, and Swift herself broke the record for the most-streamed artist in a single day in Spotify history.”

Swift said the album was inspired by her reminiscing over 13 sleepless nights, and the feelings that came from those “Midnights.” After dropping the original 13 tracks, Swift did a surprise drop of seven more songs at 3 AM. She called this addition Midnights (3am Edition).

This album has quickly become a favorite of many Taylor Swift fans and found them relating to the songs. Swift covers many topics from heartbreak, to remembering the good parts of bad relationships, to things like body dysmorphia and dealing with the mental effects that follow.

Lexi Good, a Snow College student and Taylor Swift fan said, “Taylor Swift’s Midnight album is a literal masterpiece. I find that I can find a way to relate to almost every song. Her song’s speak the feelings that I can’t comprehend by myself. Overall, I really enjoyed the album.”

The album Midnights has already sold over one million copies and broken three different records and it is sure to keep increasing over the next few months.

After dropping her album, Swift released her new tour dates. Not having gone on tour since her Reputation tour in 2018, fans have been waiting for this announcement.

This tour will be called The Eras Tour. Swift called it "a journey through the musical eras of my career (past and present!)."Swift dropped her first album in 2006 and has been making music ever since.

The Eras Tour will officially start on March 18th next year in Glendale, Arizona. So far, only the United States dates have been announced, but International dates are soon to come.
