Taylor Swift wins award for “All Too Well” music video and announces new album


Since the start of the pandemic, Taylor Swift has been busy producing four albums in total, including two new albums and two re-recordings.

It’s been two years since the release of “Folklore” and “Evermore,” but fans were thrilled to hear that a new album is in the works.

MTV Music Awards

At this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, Taylor Swift won first place for Video of the Year.

Her win marks the first time an artist has won the award three times.

While that was reason enough to celebrate, fans went wild when she took the stage to announce that a new album was coming.

Swift previously won Video of the Year in 2015 for her music video “Bad Blood” and later in 2019 for “You Need to Calm Down.”

This year, she hired another moonperson for All Too Well: The Short Film, a music video she directed.

The win made her the first artist to win Video of the Year for a music video she directed herself.

Taylor Swift previously co-directed You Need to Calm Down with Drew Kirsch. His win in the category also falls into the longest entry ever.

All Too Well

The music video for “All Too Well” ran for ten minutes and won awards for Best Long Form Video and Best Director.

The video marks her second best director award after 2020’s The Man.

The ten minute version of “All Too Well” is a re-recorded “Taylor’s Version” of the 2012 album Red.

While re-recording her music after Scooter Braun bought and sold the rights to her master recordings, Taylor Swift also recorded new music.

The announcement

As the VMAs drew to a close, Taylor Swift concluded her speech with rousing fans, saying:

“I had sort of made up my mind that, if you were going to be this generous and give us this, I thought it might be a fun moment to tell you that my brand-new album comes out October 21. And I will tell you more at midnight.”

Within an hour, the artist announced the arrival of his 10th studio album, Midnights.

The upcoming album will be Swift’s first full-length release since Folklore won her a Grammy in 2020.

According to the artist, the album contains 13 tracks from the sleepless nights of his life.

Her tweet read:

“We lie awake in love and in fear, in turmoil and in tears. We stare at walls and drink 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. 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 search — hoping that just maybe, when the clock strikes twelve… we’ll meet ourselves.”

Besides Evermore and Folklore, Taylor Swift’s other original music in 2021 was “Carolina,” a track from the movie Where the Crawdads Sing.
