Taylor Swift posted a TikTok at the stroke of midnight with a very cable-access vibe… and the title “Midnights Mayhem With Me.”
Swift was wearing a mustard blazer and sitting in front of a brown crushed-velvet backdrop, and had a gold lottery-ball cage next to her with ping-pong balls labeled 1 to 13, representing each track on her Midnights album, due Oct. 21.
She says, “I know I have a habit of dropping cryptic clues and easter eggs when giving you information about new music, and I’m not here to deny that, but I am here to defy that. Welcome to a new series I’m calling ‘Midnights Mayhem With Me.’ I am going to be using this technologically advanced device to help me allow fate to decide exactly what track titles I’m going to be announcing and in what order.”
She proceeds to draw the first ball from the cage, and... it’s Track 13, representing Swift’s very famous lucky number.
Taylor says with a smirk, “The first track I’m going to tell you about is Track 13, because of course,” before picking up a red phone and revealing into the receiver: “Track 13 is called ‘Mastermind.’”
It remains to be seen how often she’ll roll out episodes of this series.
