NEW YORK, KOMPAS.com — During isolation amid the coronavirus pandemic, Taylor Swift has kept busy and finished a new album that is being released on Friday.
The mega pop star made the surprise announcement Thursday on her Instagram page.
The American singer-songwriter’s eighth studio album has been titled “Folklore” and it comes less than a year after dropping her previous album “Lover.”
“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 eighth 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," shared Taylor.
The “Folklore” standard edition features 16 tracks. The album also features collaborations with Bon Iver, Aaron Dessner of The National and frequent collaborator Jack Antonoff.
“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.
She says because of the coronavirus pandemic, they took extra safety precautions while filming.
“The entire shoot was overseen by a medical inspector, everyone wore masks, stayed away from each other, and I even did my own hair, makeup, and styling," Swift wrote, ending the post with a laughing emoji.
