Will Lana Del Rey Finally Appear on Taylor Swift’s New Album Midnights

Taylor Swift fans are convinced that Lana Del Rey will be featured on her new album: Midnights, set to be released on October 21st. Fans have been speculating about the possibility of a collaboration between the two icons for years, and this October, Swift may be granting their wish. 

The two’s similar positions as some of the most influential singer-songwriters in the music industry today means that this collaboration makes complete sense for both their careers and as well as their brands. Taylor Swift has always voiced her support of Lana; in an acceptance speech in 2020, Swift refers to Lana Del Rey as “the most influential artist in pop,” explaining that Lana’s “vocal stylings, her lyrics, her aesthetics” have been “echoed and repurposed in every corner of music.

Swift’s collaboration with Lana Del Rey was pretty much confirmed by Swift herself in a recent TikTok video she posted. The video was a montage documenting the process of making Midnights, including her long-time collaborator and friend, Jack Antonoff. However, fans noticed something else. In one of the video clips, Taylor Swift wore the same sweater that she wore when she, Jack Antonoff, and Lana Del Rey all hung out. 

While this could all just be some inconsequential coincidence, there is more evidence to support this theory. When fans went to Genius to look up Taylor’s discography, they found an unreleased song called “Tossing Turning Ticking” that credited Lana Del Rey as a songwriter on the track. Although Genius has since removed this evidence, fans remain hopeful that this is a definitive sign of a collaboration between the two pop icons.

    Exploring the Magic of Movie Music

    I once had a music teacher tell me that music is one of the greatest things to study, because from it we can learn math, science, history, and art. It uses math to create beautiful scores, and from it we can learn about sound waves and resonance. Music’s role in society throughout all of humanity, lends itself to a rich history that we can learn from, and of course it is a form of art. Because it is such a rich and expansive medium, it lends itself to many aspects of society, including film. Music has a transcendent quality that makes it the perfect match for film as a form of escapism. The transcendent qualities of music enable it to create an ambiance, influence people’s mood, and foreshadow story, unlike any other tool at filmmakers disposal.

    Tukoh Taka – Did the FIFA 22 song deserve all that backlash?

    the song consists of a verse of lyrics for each Myriam, Nicki, and Maluma, the rest is vocals, vibes, and repeating the phrase “Tukoh Taka.”

    The early 20th century saw a large influx of immigrants from Latin America, which is when Latin music first started to have an impact on American popular music. Their own music, which they brought with them, started to be heard in American cities with sizable Latin American populations.
