Taylor Swift has had a patient album rollout with Midnights, which is set to drop in just a few days on October 21. A couple weeks ago, she confirmed the album’s tracklist, which features 13 songs. Now we know a bit more about what’s going on there: The album’s Apple Music listing shows how long each song is, indicating that they have a total length of 44 minutes and 2 seconds.

- Taylor Swift — 40:28
- Fearless — 53:41
- Speak Now — 67:29
- Red — 65:09
- 1989 — 48:41
- Reputation — 55:38
- Lover — 61:48
- Folklore — 63:29
- Evermore — 60:38
- Fearless (Taylor’s Version) — 106:20
- Red (Taylor’s Version) — 130:26
Meanwhile, Swift recently unveiled a bunch of things she has going on in the next week-plus. After the release of Midnights, there is set to be a “special very chaotic surprise” at 3 a.m. ET on October 21. Later that day, a video for “Anti-Hero” will premiere. Beyond that, a couple of big TV appearances on both sides of the pond are in Swift’s future: She’s jumping on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on the 24th, then on October 28, she will be on the UK’s The Graham Norton Show.
