Taylor swift is dropping a surprise album tonight and my coworker knew about it before I did.
Speaking of work, my team has been working mandatory overtime off and on for the last week. This album release is the only thing keeping me going.
Let’s talk about we know.
It’s called folklore
Per Swift, the songs are ones she’s “poured all of [her] whims, dreams, fears, and musings into.”
Based on the track listing, I doubt any of these songs will cover actual folklore.
Still have my fingers crossed for a duet about the Babadook and the wendigo.
The album has 16 tracks with 1 bonus track
Full track list below.
it has a lower-case aesthetic
i don’t know what it means, but i’m into it.
All the promotional art is in black-and-white
I’m getting folky, nostalgic vibes from the entire project.
Hm. That couldn’t be at all because of the title, could it?
The video for the song “cardigan” will premier tonight
Said video was written and directed by Taylor herself.
I will play this album on loop once it releases
This was a given.
folklore drops at midnight EST
Which means 9 PM PST. I have never been happier about a time difference in my life.
It’s happening, friends. Get ready.
If you’re bored in the meantime, I have a qualitative research project you can peruse.
