The NFL confirmed at midnight last night that the organization has found a new major sponsor: Apple Music. (The NFL’s former sponsor, Pepsi, pulled out of their relationship in May.)
Here’s why that matters, according to Swifties: Taylor Swift has an upcoming album titled “Midnights,” due out Oct. 21.
Before the album, Swift gave her fans a lot of surprises: a collection of vinyl records that form a working clock, for example, and a series of TikTok videos posted at midnight to tease each person. track names.
Although Apple’s tweet about the Super Bowl did not name the artist, fans on TikTok believe that the NFL’s midnight announcement of Apple Music could be a sign of Swift’s involvement with the halftime program.
Swift is no stranger to surprise announcements. Just this month, a cryptic tweet from the Toronto International Film Festival brought Toronto Swifties to shame. Days later he appeared at an event to screen his short film “All Too Well.”
Swift hasn’t toured since the Reputation Stadium Tour, which played Toronto in 2018. Fans speculated that the singer intends to tour “Midnights,” as well as other albums from “Reputation” — “Lover,” “Folklore,” “Evermore,” and re-recordings of “Fearless” and “Red” — next year.
Neither the NFL nor Swift confirmed the singer’s involvement with the 2023 Super Bowl, but that did not dampen the excitement from Swifties around the world.
