Did Taylor Swift tap Zoë Kravitz for songwriting assistance on Midnights?

New York, New York - Taylor Swift is dropping not-so-subtle Easter eggs as the release of her new album Midnights fast approaches, and her latest reveal name-dropped an unlikely collaborator: Zoë Kravitz.

Swifties have a long list of collaborators they'd like to see Ms. Swift work with in some way, shape, or form, but we're betting that most people didn't have Kravitz on their Bingo cards.

That's not because she isn't a talented vocalist in addition to being a respected actor, because she is. And honestly, who would expect anything less from the daughter of the legendary Lenny Kravitz?

And yet, on Tuesday, it's been reported that Kravitz, amongst others, got songwriting credits on Swift's forthcoming record. Like clockwork, this led many to wonder in what way the 33-year-old contributed to Swift's already iconic song-making process.

According to IndieWire, Kravitz was credited as a songwriter on two tracks from Midnight: Karma and Lavender Haze.

Swift previously revealed deets about Lavender Haze during one of her Midnights Mayhem with Me dish sessions on Instagram: "I happened upon the phrase 'Lavender Haze' when I was watching Mad Men and I looked it up because I thought it sounded cool,' she said.

"And it turns out that it was a common phrase that was used in the ’50s where they would just describe being in love ... Like, If you were in the 'Lavender Haze,' that meant you were in that all-encompassing love glow, and I thought that was really beautiful."

William Bowery returns on Midnights

Though Kravitz might've helped Swift with the creation of Lavender Haze, we have no doubt that the Grammy winner's boo – and possible hubby – Joe Alwyn was the source of inspiration for the track itself.

Also rumored to have songwriting credits on Midnights is "William Bowery," which we now know to be Alwyn's songwriter pseudonym that Swift gave credit to for the track Betty from her 2020 album Folklore.

With three days until Midnights' "chaotic" release, we can't wait to see what other tea is spilled about the forthcoming album!
