Taylor Swift Shares ‘Midnights’ Visual Album With ‘Music Movies’ – Indigo Music


Taylor Swift said that she has created a series of ‘music movies’ for her eagerly anticipated 10th album, ‘Midnights,’ which will include Laura Dern, Haim and others. 

Swift also confirmed the collaboration of Dern, Laith Ashley, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, John Early and Mike Birbiglia, in addition to the three Haim sisters, collaborator Jack Antonoff, make-up artist Pat McGrath and model Dita Von Teese in a trailer for the ‘Midnights’ video series.

Check out the trailer, Taylor Swift posted on her own social media platforms:

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Swift’s collaboration with cinematographer Rina Yang on her short film ‘All Too Well’ last year led to them working together again on the ‘Midnights’ video series. Swift stated in a statement obtained by THR: “I love storytelling, I love songwriting, I love writing videos, I love directing them. And this was a really fun opportunity to work again with the cinematographer Rina Yang.”

As she and Yang wanted to challenge themselves to try different things this time around, Swift hinted that the videos would go into “the world of this record.”

The singer-songwriter continued: “I’m really proud of what we made and I really hope you like them. We worked with some amazing actors, which you’ll find out more about at the end of the teaser trailer.”

After making her directorial debut with the ‘All Too Well’ short film, which will be eligible for the Oscars next year, in November, Swift released her first visual album, ‘Midnights’. Swift took that movie, which featured Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner) and Sadie Sink (Stranger Things), to the Tribeca Film Festival in New York after its Manhattan premiere, where she said that it would be amazing to write and direct a feature.”

In a statement commemorating the release of ‘Midnights’, Swift described it as “a wild ride of an album” and called Antonoff her “co-pilot” in its creation. She wrote: “He’s my friend for life (presumptuous I know but I stand by it) and we’ve been making music together for nearly a decade HOWEVER… this is our first album we’ve done with just the two of us as main collaborators.

“We’d been toying with ideas and had written a few things we loved, but ‘Midnights’ actually really coalesced and flowed out of us when our partners (both actors) did a film together in Panama. Jack and I found ourselves back in New York, alone, recording every night, staying up late and exploring old memories and midnights past.”

Swift also expressed gratitude to the other people that worked on the album, such as Lana Del Rey (who is featured on the song ‘Snow on the Beach’), Zoë Kravitz (who co-wrote ‘Karma’ and ‘Lavender Haze’), William Bowery (Joe Alwyn’s alias), and others.

Swift described ‘Midnights’ a “collage of intensity, highs and lows and ebbs and flows. Life can be dark, starry, cloudy, terrifying, electrifying, hot, cold, romantic or lonely. Just like ‘Midnights’. Which is out now.”

Swift confirmed that she collaborated with Antonoff on ‘Midnights’ last month. From 2014’s ‘1989’ through her 2020 lockdown albums ‘Folklore’ and ‘Evermore,’ as well as last year’s re-recorded versions of ‘Fearless’ and ‘Red,’ the two have collaborated on each of Swift’s previous five albums. Swift stated earlier this week that a UK tour in support of ‘Midnights’ will be revealed soon.
