Fallon tells the audience that the new album is projected to sell over one million copies in its first week. “I’m feeling very overwhelmed by the fans’ love for the record. I’m also feeling like very soft and fragile,” Taylor Swift says.
In addition, the singer discusses her love and passion for writing, and how the last six or seven years she has not stopped creating. Taylor Swift discloses that she had more fun making Midnights than any other album. Which, is in fact her first “directly autobiographical album in a while.”
Subsequently, she talks about the creative process behind her music videos for “Anti-Hero” and “Bejeweled.” Mike Birbiglia makes a cameo in her “Anti-Hero” video, while the Cinderella-inspired “Bejeweled” video features appearances from the HAIM sisters, Laura Dern, Dita Von Teese and more.

For her interview, the “All About That Bass” singer talks the inspiration behind the album title. Many people love her “throwback” type sound reminiscent of the late 90’s. Hence, the album title Takin’ It Back.
Also, Jimmy Fallon shows a clip of Meghan in the studio with her one-year-old son and she talks how becoming a mom has improved her music. “Everything means so much more and you can hear that in my lyrics. It’s not sad it’s happy.”
