In a year full of surprises airing mostly on the negative side, Taylor Swift is keeping it balanced with a last-minute announcement of her upcoming album evermore. The album is the sister record of folklore, her first quarantine project which snagged multiple Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year. Swift took to social media to share the news with the world.
“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. I loved the escapism I found in these imaginary/not imaginary tales. I loved the ways you welcomed the dreamscapes and tragedies and epic tales of love lost and found into your lives. So I just kept writing them.”
Like folklore, evermore will feature songs co-written with familiar faces like Jack Antonoff and Justin Vernon. New musical guests will also be featured, including Haim and The National. In addition to the album, Swift will be releasing the music video for “willow”, evermore’s first single, at midnight eastern time.
