Taylor Swift has released a new deluxe version of her 10th album ‘Midnights’, titled ‘Midnights (Til Dawn Edition)’, featuring an Ice Spice remix of ‘Karma’ and a re-recorded version of ‘Snow On The Beach’ with “more” Lana Del Rey.
The extended edition was released today (May 26) at midnight ET (05:00 BST). In addition to the Ice Spice and Del Rey tracks, the digital edition also includes ‘Hits Different’, which was previously only available on the Target version of the album.
Fans attending the East Rutherford shows on Swift’s ‘Eras’ US tour will be able to purchase a special edition CD which features a never-before-heard ‘Midnights’ vault track called ‘You’re Losing Me’.
Listen to the new songs below:
In a May 24 tweet announcing the deluxe edition, Swift called Ice Spice a “brilliant artist.” “After getting to know her, I can confirm: she is THE ONE to watch,” she added.
She continued, “In addition to Karma Ft Ice Spice… You asked for it, we listened: Lana and I went back into the studio specifically to record more Lana on Snow on the Beach. Love you Lana.”

Just hours after Swift released ‘Midnights’ back in October, the singer surprised fans with a deluxe edition that added seven more tracks.
Earlier this year, Del Rey shared that she wished she had “sung the whole second verse” on her collaborative track with Swift, ‘Snow On The Beach’.
In an interview with Billboardshe discussed the process of being asked to be on the track – where she only sings a short section of the song – and how she would have played a bigger role had she known she was the only featured artist to be on on the number.
“Had I known, I would have sung the whole second verse as she wanted. My job as a feature on a major artist’s album is to make sure I help add the production to the song, so I was more focused on the production.”
In recent ‘Eras’ tour news, Swift gave her track ‘I Think He Knows’ its live debut during a May 21 show.
The next scheduled stop on the big tour is Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, where she will play three consecutive concerts at the venue from Friday through Sunday (May 26, 27, 28).
Elsewhere, Stevie paid tribute to Nicks and thanked Swift for writing the song ‘You’re On Your Own, Kid’ to capture how she feels about the loss of late Fleetwood Mac bandmate Christine McVie.
Review of ‘Midnights’ upon release, NME said the album was “a sparkling return to pure pop”, adding that it “turns away from her mellow lockdown creations and recent remake project and offers brighter, forward-looking sounds”.
