So it turns out Taylor Swift wasn't quite done with 2020 after all.
The singer on Thursday morning announced she's got yet another new album to share, a 15-track record called evermore, which arrived Friday at midnight and is described as the "sister record" to her previous surprise album folklore, which arrived earlier this year with little warning to fans.
Like folklore, the newly released album is the result of a massive creative surge for Swift, who acknowledged she has always "treated albums as one-off eras and moved onto planning the next one after an album was released," she said in a note to fans. "There was something different with folklore. In making it, I felt less like I was departing and more like I was returning."
“To put it plainly, we just couldn’t stop writing songs,” she said of evermore, which features collaborations from HAIM, Bon Iver and The National. And like folklore, Aaron Dessner and Jack Antonoff contributed heavily to the framework of this new release.
Along with the album's release is an accompanying video for new song "willow," the opening track off the new record.
