Back in July of this year, Taylor Swift dropped a surprise album titled “Folklore” in the midst of a pandemic. And on Dec. 10 of last week, she announced her second surprise album of 2020, “Evermore” to be released at midnight. (Tweet below)
“Evermore”, her ninth studio album, is the sister album to her previously released “Folklore”. Her previous album was a chart topper, according to the Los Angeles Times, holding number one on the Billboard 200 for eight weeks and becoming the first album to sell 1 million copies in 2020.
Swift mentioned in the tweet below that her new album will consist of 15 songs featuring some acclaimed artists in Haim, The National, and Bon Iver.
Swift said about the album on social media, “To put it plainly, we just couldn’t stop writing songs.”
The album announcement came days after The Los Angeles Times marked her previous album “Folklore” the number one album of the year. She recently released “Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions” on Disney+, a documentary about the creation of “Folklore”, including performances of each song.
Swift’s video for “Willow”, directed by herself, will be released at midnight on Dec. 11. It will coincide with the album release.
