Shortly after, she posted the same announcement on her Instagram, sharing some details about her upcoming album and what inspired it. It's called "Midnights" and it's made up of "the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life." She encouraged her followers to "meet me at midnight" and said the album will be released on October 21.

"We lie awake in love and in fear, in turmoil and in tears," she wrote. "We stare at walls and rink until they speak back. We twist in our self-made cages and pray that we aren't — right this minute — about to make some fateful life-altering mistake."

"This is a collection of music written in the middle of the night, a journey through terrors and sweet dreams," she continued. "The floors we pace and the demons we face. For all of us who have tossed and turned and decided to keep the lanterns lit and go searching - hoping that just maybe, when the clock strikes twelve... we'll meet ourselves."

The post already has more than 6 million likes. Taylor's fans are known to be some of the most loyal fans in the world so it's no surprise that they're waiting with bated breath for her next album.
