Taylor Swift Shares Just How 'Folklore' Came About

Taylor Swift Shares Just How 'Folklore' Came About

Taylor Swift opens up about the inspiration behind her new album Folklore!

The 30-year-old musician wrote, recorded and released her eighth studio album all while in quarantine.

“In isolation my imagination has run wild and this album is the result, a collection of songs and stories that flowed like a stream of consciousness. Picking up a pen was my way of escaping into fantasy, history, and memory. 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,” she captioned a post that details how she was inspired. See below!

“It started with imagery. Visuals that popped into my mind and piqued my curiosity,” Taylor wrote. “Stars drawn around scars. A cardigan that still bears the scent of loss twenty years later. Battleships sinking into the ocean, down, down, down. The tree swing in the woods of my childhood. Hushed tones of ‘let’s run away’ and never doing it. The sun drenched month of August, sipped away like a bottle of wine.”

“Pretty soon these in my head grew faces or names and became characters,” she continued. “I found myself not only writing my own stories, but also writing about or from the perspective of people I’ve never met, people I’ve known, or those I wish I hadn’t.”

Be sure to check out the “Cardigan” music video, and stream the full album!

Taylor Swift not only dropped a BRAND NEW ALBUM tonight, she also released the music video for the song “Cardigan.”

The surprise album Folklore was announced only 16 hours ago and we’ve already been blessed with so much new Taylor music to listen to for the rest of the summer.

Taylor says that she filmed the video on a socially distanced set that was overseen by a medical inspector. She wrote and directed the video!

“The entire shoot was overseen by a medical inspector, everyone wore masks, stayed away from each other, and I even did my own hair, makeup, and styling 😂,” Taylor said.

She also said, “A million thank you’s to my brilliant, bad ass video team – cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto, producer Jil Hardin, executive producer Rebecca Skinner, AD Joe ‘Oz’ Osbourne, editor Chancler Haynes, special effects wizards David Lebensfeld & Grant Miller, and set designer Ethan Tobman.”

Stream Taylor Swift's New Album 'Folklore' Right Here!

We’re still pretty much in shock about Taylor Swift‘s surprise announcement of Folklore and now the album has already arrived!

It was only 16 hours ago that Taylor, 30, revealed to the world that she is giving fans a surprise album that she recorded during quarantine.

“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,” Taylor said in her big announcement.

Taylor said that she “wrote and recorded this music in isolation,” but still got to collaborate with some of her heroes. One of those heroes is “William Bowery,” whose information is no where to be found on Google and fans think it’s a pseudonym for someone super close to the Grammy winner.

The standard edition of the album features 16 songs and the deluxe edition, which can be ordered on Taylor‘s website in eighth different versions, features an additional song called “The Lakes.”

You can download the digital version now on iTunes or stream it below thanks to Spotify.

Taylor Swift's 'Folklore' Album Out Tonight & a Music Video Is Coming Too!

Taylor Swift's 'Folklore' Album Out Tonight & a Music Video Is Coming Too!

Huge news! Taylor Swift has a surprise album, Folklore, out tonight!!!!

“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,” Taylor announced. “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 continued, “folklore will have 16 songs on the standard edition, but the physical deluxe editions will include a bonus track called “the lakes.” Because this is my 8th studio album, I made 8 deluxe CD editions and 8 deluxe vinyl editions that are available for one week😄 Each deluxe edition has unique covers, photos, and artwork.”

About “Cardigan,” she said, “The music video for “cardigan” will premiere tonight, which I wrote/directed. A million thank you’s to my brilliant, bad ass video team – cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto, producer Jil Hardin, executive producer Rebecca Skinner, AD Joe ‘Oz’ Osbourne, editor Chancler Haynes, special effects wizards David Lebensfeld & Grant Miller, and set designer Ethan Tobman. The entire shoot was overseen by a medical inspector, everyone wore masks, stayed away from each other, and I even did my own hair, makeup, and styling.”

We’ll have the entire stream here later tonight. Stay tuned!

Taylor Swift Calls Fans Into Action After Not Seeing Nonbinary or Transgender As Options on 2020 Census

Taylor Swift Calls Fans Into Action After Not Seeing Nonbinary or Transgender As Options on 2020 Census

Taylor Swift is issuing a call of action to her fans to keep raising your voice for the voiceless during Pride Live’s Stonewall Day livestream event, which is an annual commemoration of the 1969 Stonewall uprising.

The 30-year-old musician called out the 2020 Census during her message, for not featuring nonbinary or transgender as a choice when listing your gender.

“We had a really good step forward recently with the Supreme Court ruling based on discrimination, based on sex, but we still have so far to go in terms of equality and protections for LGBTQ people and people in the trans community,” she noted in her pre-recorded message for the event.

Taylor continued that “The Equality Act has still not been passed and that needs to happen” and further called out the 2020 Census.

“I got my Census the other day and there were two choices for gender. There was male and female and that erasure was so upsetting to me, the erasure of transgender and nonbinary people,” she said. “When you don’t collect information on a group of people, that means that you have every excuse in the world not to support them. When you don’t collect data on a community, that’s a really, really brutal way of dismissing them.”

Taylor used this as a call to action for her fans: “Obviously, we all need to exercise our right to vote this year. We need to check out our absentee ballot policy in our states and we need to make sure that we elect people who care about all communities.”

If you missed it, earlier this month Taylor called out historical, racist figures in a series of tweets. Read them all here…

Taylor Swift Voices Support for Juneteenth Being a National Holiday

Taylor Swift Voices Support for Juneteenth Being a National Holiday

Taylor Swift has been very vocal on social issues lately and she’s speaking out about the importance of Juneteenth.

If you didn’t know, Juneteenth marks the day that slaves in Texas found out they were free, two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation had formally freed them.

The 30-year-old singer shared an article from The Root that included a video of the history of the holiday.

“Happy Juneteenth! I want to thank @TheRoot and @RhapsoDani for allowing me to post this video about the significance of today, June 19th, and why it should be celebrated as a National holiday,” Taylor tweeted right after the stroke of midnight on June 19.

Taylor continued, “Personally, I’ve made the decision to give all of my employees June 19th off in honor of Freedom Day from now on, and to continue to educate myself on the history that brought us to this present moment.”

“For my family, everything that has transpired recently gives us an opportunity to reflect, listen, and reprogram any part of our lives that hasn’t been loudly and ferociously anti-racist, and to never let privilege lie dormant when it could be used to stand up for what’s right,” she concluded.

Last week, Taylor spoke out against statues of racist historical figures and said that she doesn’t think that states should replace any of the ones torn down by protesters.
