The latest deluxe version of Taylor Swift's Midnights (The Til Dawn Edition) has dropped and it comes with two special new tracks: a remix to the fan-favorite, "Karma" featuring the people's princess, Ice Spice, and an extended version of "Snow on the Beach," with Lana Del Rey giving listeners more Lana this time.

Swift first announced the new additions to her deluxe, deluxe album earlier this week in a tweet, "Um. SO much to tell you. I’m a massive fan of this brilliant artist and after getting to know her I can confirm: she is THE ONE to watch. So delighted to say that Karma Featuring the incredible @icespicee_" the tweet continues, "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."
Fans had claimed they could barely hear Del Rey in the original version but in this deluxe version, it's as if her voice is now more prominent than Tay's, but still cultivating a beautiful balance.
In an interview with Billboard, Del Rey revealed that Swift had originally asked her to sing the whole second verse on the original version but she believed her job as a feature "is to make sure I help add to the production of the song, so I was more focused on the production," she said.
Ice Spice complemented "Karma" well, adding adlibs behind Taylor to spice up the song before owning the second verse in this version.
But the real treat, for some, comes in the form of a physical CD that includes a never before heard song that exists in no other format but this physical version. The song is called "You're Losing Me" and is what Swift refers to as a "vault track." The sad part is, this will only be available at merch stands for her East Rutherford stadium shows.
Fingers crossed Tay is coming up with a plan to distribute the CD elsewhere.
