Taylor Swift has announced a new album by surprise, ‘Folklore’, which will go on sale this midnight and can already be reserved on its website. It has been on social networks, where the singer has revealed this unexpected news, to the delight of her fans. A studio album he has worked on during the confinement for the coronavirus pandemic.
“Surprise! This midnight I will publish my eighth studio album, ‘Folklore’; a completely new album full of songs in which I have poured all my wishes, dreams, fears and reflections,” Swift wrote on her Twitter account. On Instagram, the singer published a fragment of the album cover, as if it were a puzzle, and then announced the release.
The announcement has been complete, since it has also revealed the number of songs that will include ‘folklore’, a total of 16 plus a bonus track. Although done during quarantine, it includes a collaboration with Bob Iver, ‘Exile’.
The Pennsylvania diva has also shared that she will release eight separate physical editions of ‘Folklore’, eight deluxe editions on both CD and vinyl, each with unique covers and photos, and which will be available for a week.
The singer has commented that he has co-written 11 of the songs on the album, which is produced by Aaron Dessner of The National, who also published the announcement on their social networks. Jack Antonoff and William Bowery have also collaborated on the album.
“Before this year, I probably would have thought too much about when would be the perfect time to release this album,” Swift wrote in a statement attached to the album images.
“But the times we are living remind me that nothing is guaranteed and tell me that if you do something you love, you should share it with the world,” he added. In addition, this midnight will be the first video clip for the album, ‘Cardigan’, which has been directed by the singer herself.
