Taylor Swift made history on Sunday night at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards when she became the first artist to win the ceremony’s most prestigious award, Video of the Year, three times. She also garnered the most attention on Sunday, when she unexpectedly announced onstage that a new Taylor Swift album is forthcoming.

Swift, who won Video of the Year in 2015 with “Bad Blood” and again in 2019 with “You Need to Calm Down,” won another Moonperson on Sunday for the short film she created, “All Too Well: The Short Film.”

The singer-songwriter also made VMAs history as the first artist to win Video of the Year with a completely self-directed clip (she co-directed “You Need to Calm Down” with Drew Kirsch) and for winning Video of the Year with the category’s longest-ever entry.

“All Too Well,” a 10-minute video, also received awards for Best Longform Video and Best Direction. (This was Swift’s second win for Best Direction, following her win for “The Man” in 2020.) Swift stated in her 2022 Video of the Year acceptance speech that she was “encouraged by the fact that, for the first time in VMA history, four of the Video of the Year category nominees are women.”

The 10-minute “All Too Well” is from Swift’s re-recorded “Taylor’s Version” edition of her 2012 album Red, but along with redoing her back catalog — a long-term endeavor she began after Scooter Braun bought and sold the rights to her master recordings — she is still concentrating on new music.

So, when the VMAs concluded on Sunday, she teased, “I had sort of decided that, if you were going to be this generous and give us this, it could be a wonderful opportunity to tell you that my brand-new album will be released on October 21. And I shall elaborate at midnight…”

Swift announced the release of her tenth studio album, Midnights, an hour later. “We lie awake in love and fear, in turmoil and tears,” she tweeted, describing the album as “the story of 13 restless nights spread throughout my life.” We drink and stare at walls till they speak back. We twist in our self-made cages and pray that we are not about to make a life-altering error at this very moment.

This is a compilation of music composed in the dead of night, a voyage through nightmares and pleasant dreams. The hallways we traverse and the demons we confront. For all of us who have tossed and turned and opted to keep the light of the lantern and continue searching in the hope that when the clock strikes twelve… we’ll meet ourselves.”

Midnights will be Swift’s first full-length album since her Grammy-winning 2020 pandemic album Folklore and her companion album Evermore. Her only other new original composition in 2021 was “Carolina,” written for the film “Where the Crawdads Sing.”

“All Too Well: The Short Film” has reportedly qualified to be eligible for the Oscars’ Best Live Action Short category, according to The Hollywood Reporter. If that song receives an Academy Award nomination for Best Song the following year, Swift could become a double-nominee and make awards show history yet again.

Sunday, August 28, 2022, at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, Nicki Minaj, LL Cool J, and Jack Harlow co-hosted the MTV Music Awards. Minaj also had a successful night, collecting the Video Vanguard Award, while the Red Hot Chili Peppers received the Global Icon Award for lifetime achievement.

Among the other performers were the K-pop trio BLACKPINK, the country singer Kane Brown, the Italian glam-rock band Mneskin, the emo veterans Panic! At the Disco, EDM superstar Marshmello alongside Khalid, Lizzo, Eminem, and Snoop Dogg, as well as Latin talents Anitta, Bad Bunny, and J Balvin.
