Once again, Taylor Swift took us all by surprise.  The singer announced on Thursday morning on her Twitter account that she would be releasing her ninth studio album, evermore, at midnight on Friday. Swift had sent Twitter into a frenzy on November 23 when she tweeted, “not a lot going on at the moment.” 

What made this such a big deal was Swift had tweeted this exact tweet back in April when she was secretly recording folklore, which came out three months later much to everyone’s surprise.  Some (like myself) assumed that she was hinting at re-recording music from her first six albums as she announced after winning the American Music Awards artist of the year or the concert she did for Disney+, and yet others speculated that Swift was recording another album.  Turns out it was the latter.

Swift tweeted the album artwork,  which was done by Beth Garrabrant, and the track list for evermore. Artists making an appearance on the new album are Haim, The National and Bon Iver, who appeared on folklore singing on “exile.”

Here are some of the tweets from Swift on the album, evermore, including the announcement of the premiere of the music video for the first single, “willow.”

The video for “willow” premiered on YouTube at midnight on Friday as well.  Directed by Swift, “willow” continues the narrative from the music video of “cardigan,” folklore’s first single.

Let us know your thoughts on the upcoming evermore album in the comments or on our social media accounts.
