Taylor Swift had a surprise for fans who stayed up to get a first listen to her new album, “Midnights.”

The singer released a second version of the album, the “3 am Edition,” featuring seven more songs.

“Surprise! I think of Midnights as a complete concept album, with those 13 songs forming a full picture of the intensities of that mystifying, mad hour. However! There were other songs we wrote on our journey to find that magic 13. I’m calling them 3 am tracks. Lately, I’ve been loving the feeling of sharing more of our creative process with you, like we do with From The Vault tracks. So it’s 3 am, and I’m giving them to you now,” Taylor wrote on Instagram.

The additional songs are The Great War,” “Bigger Than The Whole Sky,” “Paris,” “High Infidelity,” “Glitch,” “Would’ve, Could’ve, Should’ve,” and “Dear Reader.” There are 12 actors that will be featured in the “Midnights” music videos. Their names haven’t been announced.


Swift also shared visuals from her album and many Swifties recognize parallels to her past.

Swift released “Midnights” on Friday, but she teased music videos during “Thursday Night Football.”

Taylor worked with “All Too Well: The Short Film” cinematographer Rina Yang on the films. In the teaser, she puffs out a purple smoke clock, wears jewelry-laden clothes, and smashes a guitar.

Swifties, notably @ThrowbackTaylor on Twitter, quickly saw references to the singer’s earlier visuals and songs. This contained an allusion to Swift’s song “The Archer,” a castle from her “Love Story” video, and a vibrant outfit from her “Lover” era.
