Taylor Swift Addresses 'Woodvale' Rumors & Joe Alwyn's Pseudonym During 'Kimmel' Interview

Taylor Swift responded to a bunch of rumors while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night (December 14).

The 31-year-old singer was asked about the theories that she has a new album called Woodvale on the way and she also was asked about her boyfriend Joe Alwyn‘s songwriting pseudonym William Bowery.

“Your boyfriend wrote some of the lyrics to some of the songs under a pseudonym, William Bowery. Who chose that name?” Jimmy asked.

Taylor replied, “He did.”

When asked for the inspiration behind the name, Taylor said, “You gotta ask him because it’s really more of his story than mine.” Jimmy then told her to turn the camera around and let him talk, which led her to let out a big laugh.

After the release of Taylor‘s ninth studio album Evermore, fans came up with the theory that a third pandemic album titled Woodvale would be released. During an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday (December 14), she shot down the theory.

“Well, this takes a bit of explanation. I tend to be sort of annoyingly secret-agenty about dropping clues and hints and Easter eggs. It’s very annoying, but it’s fun for fans and it’s fun for me because they like to pick up on things. And they’ll notice lots of things in music videos and photos or whatever. Sometimes I take it too far and make a mistake,” Taylor said.

The singer then explained what actually happened and how “Woodvale” ended up on that photo.

Taylor continued, “Basically, when I was making Folklore, the album that came out back in July, I was too afraid to even unveil the title of the album to even my closest teammates and management. I didn’t tell anyone the album title until right before it came out. I came up with a fake code name that had the same amount of letters as Folklore. Chose a random name. Chose Woodvale. Wanted to see how it would look on the album covers, mocked them up, and then decided I don’t actually want to have a title on the album covers. And we forgot to take the fake code name off of one of them.”

Taylor added, “Evermore had a code name. It was November. We remembered to take it off the mock-ups of the album covers before we released it this time. We learned our lesson.”

When Jimmy suggested a title for another album, Taylor replied, “I’m so tired. I’m so exhausted. I’ve tired myself out. I have nothing left.”
