Taylor Swift is Releasing a New Album Tonight. What do you Need to Know?

This morning, when One Direction fans were already high energy about their tenth anniversary events, Taylor Swift added to the energy by announcing on her instagram that she is releasing a new album, Folklore, tonight. It will be her eighth album.

She states that: “Tonight at midnight I’ll be releasing my entire brand new album of songs I’ve poured all of my whims, dreams, fears, and musings into.”

The album will consist of 16 tracks and one bonus track, “The Lakes”, and, on top of the album, she’s releasing a music video for one of the songs, “Cardigan” tonight as well. It will release at midnight as well.

To clear any confusion amid the current pandemic, Taylor states that “the entire shoot was overseen by a medical inspector, everyone wore masks, stayed away from each other, and I even did my own hair, makeup, and styling.”

Because this is her eighth album, there are eight deluxe CD editions and eight deluxe vinyl editions available for one week only. They are available on the Taylor Swift website only.

Taylor is releasing this album because “Before this year I probably would’ve overthought when to release this music at the ‘perfect’ time, but the times we’re living in keep reminding me that nothing is guaranteed. My gut is telling me that if you make something you love, you should just put it out into the world. That’s the side of uncertainty I can get on board with. Love you guys so much.”

Be sure to listen tonight.
