Taylor Swift Releasing New Album ‘Folklore’ Tonight

Big news for Swifties. Taylor Swift low-key Instagrammed that a new album Folklore will descend upon us common folk tonight. Since there’s nothing going on in 2020 and we’re stuck at home, I predict big things.

Her caption read:

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. And that thing is my 8th studio album, folklore. Surprise 🤗Tonight at midnight I’ll be releasing my entire brand new album of songs I’ve poured all of my whims, dreams, fears, and musings into. 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. The album photos were shot by the amazing @bethgarrabrant. Before this year I probably would’ve overthought when to release this music at the ‘perfect’ time, but the times we’re living in keep reminding me that nothing is guaranteed. My gut is telling me that if you make something you love, you should just put it out into the world. That’s the side of uncertainty I can get on board with. Love you guys so much ♥️

She’s got Bon Iver on this, who’s like the go-to guy for people into folk. Then Jack Antonoff who’s wrote and co-produced with Swift on 1989. Antonoff’s also worked with Lana Del Rey and Lorde. An aside: I don’t think that guy is that great, not sure why people keep turning to him. Max Martin was amazing, why is no one big working with him anymore? Was the Swedish music scene a flash in the pan?

Folklore comes out 12am EST tonight. Hopefully, this doesn’t turn out to be like Justin Timberlake’s Man of the Woods.
