The folklore era will continue tonight at midnight.
Early Thursday, Taylor Swift surprised fans with the announcement of her ninth studio album, a “sister record” to folklore titled evermore.
“To put it plainly, we just couldn’t stop writing songs,” Swift said. “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.”
Per Swift, we can expect “some new (and longtime) friends” to join the proceedings this time around.
