Fans react to Taylor Swift announcing Ice Spice collaboration on Midnights (Til Dawn Edition) deluxe album

Taking to her socials yesterday evening (25 May), Taylor Swift had a whole string of news to announce to her fans.

Just hours after Swift released Midnights last October, the singer surprised fans with a deluxe edition – Midnights (3AM Edition)which she called "very chaotic".

Aaron Dessner, who worked with Swift on Folklore, Evermore and some "From the Vault" songs on her re-recordings, didn't make an appearance on the original Midnights tracklist, but he did co-write and co-produce three of the seven bonus songs on the 3am Edition of Midnights, including "The Great War", "High Infidelity" and "Would've, Could've, Should've".

Now, Swift has revealed that she will be releasing another version of Midnights, which features a collaboration with Ice Spice, on "Karma", and a version of "Snow On The Beach" which will include more of Lana Del Rey – much to the delight of fans. "In addition to Karma Ft Ice Spice… You asked for it, we listened: Lana and I went back into the studio specifically to record more Lana on Snow on the Beach. Love u Lana", Swift says.

Earlier this year, Del Rey shared that she wished she’d “sung the entire second verse” on "Snow On The Beach", had she known that she was the only featured artist on the track. Luckily, she is now able to redeem herself with this new release.

Fans have reacted to the news of these releases, with one user noting that Taylor Swift is doing this for the gays, whilst another person notes that Swift was "bullied" into the re-record.

Swift also announces that fans who are attending the East Rutherford shows will have access to a special edition CD of Midnights (Til Dawn Edition). The CD will include a previously unheard Midnights vault track called “You’re Losing Me”.

Whilst many of the reactions have been positive, other Swift fans have been discussing the fact that Swift's alleged boyfriend, The 1975's Matty Healy was recently under fire for making racist comments towards Ice Spice.

He issued an "apology" a few months after the event, but there is yet to be any statements made from Ice Spice, herself.

"Karma" featuring Ice Spice will be released on 26 May. Midnights (Til Dawn Edition) is available to pre-order.
