On Instagram yesterday, Taylor Swift announced that she was going to be releasing her new album today.
Folklore arrived on Friday (July 24) at midnight along with a whopping sixteen tracks. “Most of the things I had planned this summer didn’t end up happening, but there is something I hadn’t planned on that DID happen,” Swift previously wrote on Instagram. “And that thing is my 8th studio album, folklore.”
Swift told her fans that she “poured all of my whims, dreams, fears, and musings” into this new record. She also gave a shout-out to her collaborators: “I wrote and recorded this music in isolation but got to collaborate with some musical heroes of mine; @aarondessner (who has co-written or produced 11 of the 16 songs), @boniver (who co-wrote and was kind enough to sing on one with me), William Bowery (who co-wrote two with me) and @jackantonoff (who is basically musical family at this point). Engineered by Laura Sisk and Jon Low, mixed by Serban Ghenea & Jon Low.”
In isolation my imagination has run wild and this album is the result. I’ve told these stories to the best of my ability with all the love, wonder, and whimsy they deserve. Now it’s up to you to pass them down. folklore is out now: https://t.co/xdcEDfithq
