Taylor Swift has just confirmed she is the hardest-working woman in music right now as she revealed the release of her 9th studio album, evermore.
Just months after she blew the world away with her surprise album, folklore, she has revealed that a ‘sister record’ will be out tonight.
Taking to Instagram to announce the exciting news, she explained: ‘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. I’ve never done this before.’
The hitmaker opened up to fans about why she chose to create the project as she added: ‘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. 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…’
In another post she added: ‘Ever since I was 13, I’ve been excited about turning 31 because it’s my lucky number backwards, which is why I wanted to surprise you with this now. You’ve all been so caring, supportive and thoughtful on my birthdays and so this time I thought I would give you something! I also know this holiday season will be a lonely one for most of us and if there are any of you out there who turn to music to cope with missing loved ones the way I do, this is for you.
‘There are 15 tracks on the standard edition of evermore, but the deluxe physical edition will include two bonus tracks – “right where you left me” and “it’s time to go” All *digital downloads* of the album will include an exclusive, digital booklet with 16 brand new photos. You can pre-order evermore now at store.taylorswift.com.’
The 30-year-old singer then announced the lead single’s video was coming in a matter of hours as she stated: ‘Tonight the story continues, as the music video for “willow” drops at midnight eastern.’
She then went on to thank her team for helping develop the exciting new project as before she wrote: ‘Thank you to our medical inspector who made sure every precaution was taken for our safety. I’ll see you guys in the YouTube premiere page chat before midnight to answer some questions.’
Naturally, her fans were overwhelmed to learn that even more new music was dropping this year as one wrote: ‘WTF TAYLOR I AM HAVING A HEART ATTACK’.
Another added: ‘The most productive person in 2020 is Taylor Swift.’
It’s already been an incredible year for the singer after she broke records left, right and centre with the release of folklore.
In fact, the star had only recently celebrated getting several Grammy nominations for the project.
