Taylor Swift surprised fans with a brand new album, Evermore — the “sister record” to her newly-GRAMMY-nominated July album Folklore.
Swift announced a surprise “sister record” album to July’s Folklore on Thursday — and less than a day later, Evermore was here. The new record features 15 tracks, plus two bonus songs on the physical edition, and Swift shared with fans the creative process that led her to the spiritual follow-up to her newly GRAMMY-nominated album on social media — describing Evermore as the fall/winter to Folklore’s spring/summer.
“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,” the singer said. “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.”
