Taylor Swift announces ‘Midnights (The Til Dawn Edition)’

Album drops on May 26th

Taylor Swift will release a deluxe edition of Midnights on Friday, May 26th. Midnights (The Til Dawn Edition) will feature 23 tracks in total, including tracks on the 3 AM Edition and three exclusive to the new deluxe version.

The set includes a new version of “Karma” featuring Ice Spice and freshly recorded vocals by Lana Del Rey on their collaboration “Snow on the Beach.” It also includes the vault track, “You’re Losing Me,” which wasn’t included on the original release last fall.

“Um. SO much to tell you. I’m a massive fan of this brilliant artist and after getting to know her I can confirm: she is THE ONE to watch. So delighted to say that Karma Featuring the incredible @icespice will be out TOMORROW night at MIDNIGHT ET as a part of the new Midnights (Til Dawn Edition) deluxe album that you can pre-order now at store.taylorswift.com!” Swift shares on socials.

“In addition to Karma Ft Ice Spice… You asked for it, we listened: Lana and I went back into the studio specifically to record more Lana on Snow on the Beach. Love u @honeymoon 🥰😆” she adds.

In addition, fans attending her Eras Tour stop in East Rutherford, NJ this weekend will get access to a new special edition CD available only at the merch booths starting at 12:30 pm ET on Friday. The CD will include a never-before-released Midnights vault track called, “You’re Losing Me.”

The project is the second project the pop star has announced this month. Swift will release Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) on July 7th via Republic Records featuring 22 songs with six previously unreleased Songs From the Vault. She made the announcement while on stage during a three night stand at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium.

Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) follows Red (Taylor’s Version)which surpassed Spotify’s biggest opening day streams of all-time for a female with over 90 million, a record previously held by Swift herself — and Fearless (Taylor’s Version) — which broke records upon its release in summer 2021.

Swift, who is currently in the midst of releasing re-recorded versions of her first six studio albums following a public feud with her former label, Big Machine Label Group, most recently released Midnights in fall 2022 which scored the country-turned-pop-star the biggest album of the decade and the biggest debut of her career.

In April, Swift made history again with the vinyl release of Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions debuting at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, logging the “The highest chart debut for a Record Store Day Vinyl ever.” At the time of the announcement, she occupied three spots in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 (No. 3 Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions, No. 4 Midnights, No. 10 Lover), joining Whitney Houston as the only female soloist to achieve this milestone.

Swift is currently on The Eras Tour. She initially announced 27 dates last fall and then added eight and an additional 17 new dates within two weeks. Swift will play multiple nights in all cities, tallying to 52 shows in US stadiums in 2023.
