Taylor Swift Announces Imminent Release Of New Album 'Evermore'

Thursday, 10 December 2020 Written by Laura Johnson

Taylor Swift has announced the imminent release of a new album.

At midnight Eastern Time tonight (December 10), she will drop 'evermore', which she explains in a social media post is the sister record to her latest album, 'folklore', that arrived without forewarning this summer.

The new record will feature collaborations with Haim, the National and Bon Iver, with the latter also having appeared on its predecessor. Swift said:

"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. 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 an earlier post, she explained:

"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 https://taylor.lnk.to/evermorealbum"

Alongside the release of the album, the superstar singer-songwriter will also unveil the video for Willow, its opening track, which she self-directed with a little help, as she explained in another in-depth social media post.
