Taylor Swift Surprise Announces 'folklore' Follow-Up Album 'evermore'

Taylor Swift is keeping the 2020 surprises coming!

In celebration of her upcoming birthday, the almost 31-year-old singer/songwriter announced that her next album evermore will be out at midnight on Friday (December 11).

Taylor shared the news on Instagram, and revealed that it’s a continuation after folklore, because they couldn’t stop writing songs.

“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,” Taylor wrote. “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.”

“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,” she continued. “In making it, I felt less like I was departing and more like I was returning. 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…”

Taylor revealed more in a couple of follow up posts, including the full tracklist, and bonus tracks. Check out her posts below…
