Zoë Kravitz Co-Wrote Two Songs For Taylor Swift’s ‘Midnights’ Album

Two songs from Taylor Swift’s next album ‘Midnights’ were co-written by Zoë Kravitz. This Friday, the singer-songwriter will release her tenth studio album. Along with the single ‘Anti-Hero,’ it will also include the song ‘Snow on The Beach,’ a duet with Lana Del Rey.

Kravitz collaborated on the songs ‘Karma’ and ‘Lavender Haze’. Swift revealed last month that Jack Antonoff, a longtime collaborator, had contributed to ‘Midnights’. The singer then revealed the album’s 13-song tracklist, which comes after 2020’s ‘Folklore’ and ‘Evermore’.

Swift co-wrote 11 of the album’s 13 songs with Antonoff; ‘Vigilante S**t’ is supposedly the sole song she penned on her own. Swift recently disclosed that the title of the Kravitz-co-written song, ‘Lavender Haze,’ was inspired by a Mad Men episode. Swift, who revealed that she came across the phrase while watching the legendary TV show, explained the song’s meaning in a new video.

“I happened upon the phrase ‘Lavender Haze’ when I was watching Mad Men and I looked it up because I thought it sounded cool,” she said. “And it turns out that it was a common phrase that was used in the ’50s where they would just describe being in love.”

“Like, if you were in the ‘Lavender Haze,’ that meant you were in that all-encompassing love glow, and I thought that was really beautiful.”

On a billboard in London, Swift just shared more lyrics from her album ‘Midnights’. She started a week-long run of lyric reveals in collaboration with Spotify at midnight. 

The line “I should not be left to my own devices…” appeared on a huge screen in Times Square, New York City. Another lyric then popped up in London, reading: “I polish up real nice.”

Swift is expected to reveal details of a forthcoming live tour, according to a post on her official website.
