When Swift teased that she had a "very chaotic surprise," fan theories were all over the place.

Most Swifties were sure the artist was making a tour announcement, while others thought she'd be making a documentary about the album itself.

A few thought the artist would be releasing a double album or sister album like she did with Folklore and Evermore.

As it turns out, the Lavender Haze artist did something no one expected. She dropped seven bonus tracks because she's been "loving the feeling of sharing more of our creative process," she tweeted.

"I think of Midnights as a complete concept album, with those 13 songs forming a full picture of the intensities of that mystifying, mad hour. However! There were other songs we wrote on our journey to find that magic 13," Swift said while announcing the bonus tracks.
