Taylor Swift, Aaron Dessner (The National), Jack Antonoff (Bleachers) and Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) created an album that crossed genres — a musical journey that allows us to cry and laugh, and during these trying times, makes us feel like we’re not quite so alone. They recorded “folklore” thousands of miles apart from each other and had never been in the same room together…

…until now

Taylor Swift Will Release Surprise Album ‘Folklore’ Friday

While in isolation, Taylor Swift has created a new album and is releasing it Friday.

“Folklore,” the eighth record by Taylor Swift. Swift says the standard edition will include 16 tracks and the album will feature Bon Iver, Aaron Dessner of The National and frequent collaborator Jack Antonoff. 

The pop star made the surprise announcement Thursday on Instagram.

“Most of the things I had planned this summer didn’t end up happening, but there is something I hadn’t planned on that DID happen. And that thing is my 8th studio album, folklore. Surprise,” she wrote. “Tonight at midnight I’ll be releasing my entire brand new album of songs I’ve poured all of my whims, dreams, fears, and musings into. I wrote and recorded this music in isolation.”

“Before this year I probably would’ve overthought when to release this music at the ‘perfect’ time, but the times we’re living in keep reminding me that nothing is guaranteed. My gut is telling me that if you make something you love, you should just put it out into the world. That’s the side of uncertainty I can get on board with,” Swift wrote.

She also said that the music video for the song “Cardigan” will premiere at midnight Eastern.

Watch Taylor Swift Transform Into “The Man” In Her New Music Video

Today Taylor Swift released the music video for the fourth single off her album Lover — “The Man”. The song, which Swift penned with frequent collaborator Joel Little, sees Swift contemplating what people would say about her life and career if she were a man.

Swift literally becomes “The Man” for the video, an obnoxious alpha-bro who manspreads, yells at co-workers, parties on yachts, gets lauded as the “World’s Greatest Dad” just for spending time with his kid, and eventually becomes an old man marrying a much younger woman. At the end of the video, “The Man” walks off set and asks his director (Swift) for notes — with his voice dubbed by Dwayne Johnson. And if you stay tuned to the very end, you’ll see a time-lapse of Swift’s transformation for the video.

Ryan Adams 1989

taylor_swift_ryan_adams_1989_732_732

On 1989, Ryan Adams offers a track-by-track reinterpretation of Taylor Swift’s chart-topping 2014 album. The result is as intimate as it is disarming. Adams presents Swift’s explosive pop hooks with an air of graceful melancholy, using acoustic guitars and reverb-soaked vocals to add heartbroken emotion to familiar hits like “Shake It Off,” “Bad Blood,” and “Blank Space.” Still, the most satisfying moments on Adams’ version of 1989 are the deep cuts from Swift’s original release, including the dusky glow of “Out of the Woods” and chiming guitars of “Wildest Dreams.”
