Taylor Swift has been impressed and productive through the pandemic. The celebrity singer revealed Thursday by way of Twitter that she’s dropping a brand new album at midnight, titled “Evermore.” It is a “sister record” to Swift’s “Folklore” album which was launched in July.
“Folklore” was the primary music album to promote one million copies in 2020.
“To put it plainly, we just couldn’t stop writing songs,” Swift wrote. “To try and put it more poetically, it feels like we were standing on the edge of the folklorian woods and had a choice: to turn and go back or to travel further into the forest of this music. We chose to wander deeper in.”
The album could have 15 songs and value $9.99 for a digital copy of the report. “Evermore” is Swift’s ninth studio album and has two bonus tracks as a part of its deluxe version.
Additionally, a music video for a brand new monitor referred to as “willow” will likely be launched at midnight. Like the music video for “cardigan,” “willow” was filmed through the pandemic and “every precaution” was taken to guarantee the security of Swift and the crew who filmed the video.
“I’ve never done this before,” Swift stated. “In the past I’ve always treated albums as one-off eras and moved onto planning the next one after an album was released. There was something different with folklore. In making it, I felt less like I was departing and more like I was returning.”
Like “Folklore,” “Evermore” has been cowritten and coproduced by Jack Antonoff and the National’s Aaron Dessner. Swift additionally hinted at some but unnamed collaborators.
