So much is happening this year, I can’t believe we’re only halfway through the year! A lot of awful things happened but a lot of good things are happening too. And one of those things is that Taylor Swift is dropping a surprise music album. Yes, really! Only she can pull it off like it’s no biggie. The whole internet is loving this.
But before we get to what everyone thinks of this amazing piece of news, let’s find out more about the Taylor Swift surprise album.
What is the new Taylor Swift music album about?
Randomly, Taylor Swift shared this on her social media:
The singer shares that there are many things that she had planned for summer of 2020, but that didn’t end up happening. But on the plus side, she got to make and release her 8th official studio album ‘Folkore’. Taylor Swift has poured herself into this album, meaning we’ll get to see an even different side of Taylor.
Usually, her fans get to know about her upcoming music weeks and months in advance. But this time, there was no preparation! She posted cryptic pictures on her Instagram account before finally revealing her picture in the woods and then sharing the news of the album.
We also got to know some exciting news! There’s a whole music video that is going to premiere tonight. Yep, only Taylor Swift can pull this off without anyone knowing.
The music video for “cardigan” will premiere tonight, which I wrote/directed. A million thank you’s to my brilliant, bad ass video team – Cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto, producer Jil Hardin, executive producer Rebecca Skinner, AD Joe ‘Oz’ Osbourne pic.twitter.com/2hNXnzFbwY

Just like her ‘The Man’ video, Taylor Swift is also the director of this music video. Since that video was amazing, we can expect ‘Cardigan’ to be as well.
Taylor also reveals that she did her own styling for the music video too. Not only that but she followed all the precautionary steps needed to ensure everyone was safe. The songs themselves were written and recorded ‘in isolation’.
Taylor Swift being a queen as usual.
