Taylor Swift will drop a surprise tonight
Surprise! Taylor Swift will be releasing a new album this week, one that she wrote and recorded entirely in isolation.
The world has less than a day to prepare for Swift’s eighth studio album, “Folklore”. The pop giant announced its sudden launch on Twitter Thursday morning.
“Most of the things I had planned for this summer are not over,” she wrote, probably referring to her canceled tour from her 2019 “August” album. “But there was something I did. had not planned to do. ”
Unlike his last album, Chasing Easter Eggs online and off, and plenty of candy-colored music videos, performing at the Billboard Music Awards, this time … Taylor Swift drops it. His new album, Folklore, will be released at midnight tonight. She wrote in an Instagram post announcing the album: “Most of the things I planned for this summer haven’t ended, but there is something I didn’t plan for DID.” “And this stuff is my eighth studio album, Folklore.
Surprise tonight in the middle of the night, I’ll be releasing my brand new album of songs that I’ve poured out all my passions, dreams, fears and thoughts on.” Folklore contains 16 songs, but the premium versions include an additional track called “The Lakes.” “The physical versions come in eight different CD and vinyl versions, each containing unique images and artwork.
wrote this music and recorded it in isolation, but I have collaborated with some of the heroes of the music. Aarondessner (who co-wrote or produced 11 of 16 songs) and Boniver (who co-wrote and had the kindness to sing a song with me) and William Puri (who shared Writing Two with me) and @ jackantonoff (who is basically a musical family at this point).
Apparently, it was “Folklore”, an album which, according to Swift, “poured out all of her fantasies, dreams, fears and hopes”. She wrote and recorded everything in isolation, but enlisted the help of colleagues like Bon Ever, a Grammy-winning independent singer, prolific producer, songwriter and frequent collaborator of Swift Jack Antonov.
Gone are the days of the usual album release tactics in Swift – weeks of hours of clues, hours of countdowns, Instagram rubs and laughter among fans. Less than a year ago, Swift released “Lover” with many of these tactics, including changing up her Instagram color scheme and stirring up song titles on magazine covers. But the world she released the movie “Lover” in in August 2019 is now completely different.
She wrote: “Before this year, I probably would have thought about when to release music at the ‘perfect’ time, but the times we live in constantly remind me that it’s not guaranteed.” “My gut tells me that if you do something you love, you have to bring it into the world. This aspect of uncertainty, I can agree.”
Taylor Swift has been virtually silent in 2020 since the release of her Netflix documentary “Miss Americana” in January. On Thursday night, however, she will begin releasing the album with the first musical for “Cardigan,” a new song which Taylor Swift says also wrote and directed the music video.
