Taylor Swift has thanked her fans for “doing something mind blowing” as her new LP broke the Spotify record for most-streamed album in a single day.

The pop-megastar’s latest offering, Midnights, was released on Friday.

Less than 24 hours later the music streaming giant announced online that the album had amassed the most streams in a single day in the platform’s history.

Swift took fans by surprise when she announced the new album in the closing moments of the 2022 MTV VMAs in New Jersey in August.

She has described the record as the story of “13 sleepless nights scattered throughout her life” and “a journey through terrors and sweet dreams”.

It sees her turn away from the intimate indie songwriting of her two last albums, Folklore and Evermore, in favour of electronica, synth-pop and sometimes even hip hop-influenced beats.
