Taylor Swift Says ‘I’ve Never Done This Before’ While Explaining The Main Difference Between Folklore And The Other Albums

Taylor Swift Says ‘I’ve Never Done This Before’ While Explaining The Main Difference Between Folklore And The Other Albums

On Twitter, Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Taylor Swift announced that she would release her ninth studio album tonight, which she described as ‘sister album’ after Folklore, one of the most popular albums of 2020, and shocked her fans.

Folklore, which Taylor Swift secretly recorded during the coronavirus lockout, gained both critical and commercial success after its release. It topped the US and UK charts, and Swift received six nominations for the 2021 Grammy awards, including the album of the year and the song of the year for, ‘Cardigan.’

The 30-year-old musician said it will be released tonight, the album is titled ‘Evermore.’ Swift has stated that she hasn’t stopped writing songs and says she and her crew ‘chose to wander deeper in.’

Here’s what she said:

“I’m elated to tell you that my 9th studio album, and folklore’s sister record, will be out tonight at midnight eastern. It’s called evermore.

To put it plainly, we just couldn’t stop writing songs. To try and put it more poetically, it feels like we were standing on the edge of the folklorian woods and had a choice: to turn and go back or to travel further into the forest of this music. We chose to wander deeper in.”

Swift also said that she had never released consecutive albums before and treated them as a single term. But she admitted that there was something different in Folklore, and she said she ‘felt less like she was departing and more like she was returning’ while creating this album.

Here’s what she tweeted:

“I’ve never done this before. 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.”

She also tweeted:

“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.

And I loved creating these songs with Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff, WB, and Justin Vernon. We’ve also welcomed some new (and longtime) friends to our musical kitchen table this time around…”
