Not even a year after dropping her double Platinum seventh studio album, ‘Lover,’ GRAMMY-winning Pop diva Taylor Swift stunned fans with news she’d completed its follow-up, ‘Folklore.’
Assembling her “musical heroes” Bon Iver, Jack Antonoff, William Bowery, Aaron Dessner, and more to contribute to the 16-song LP, Swift issued a statement to trumpet the set’s arrival just Thursday (July 23).
“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,” Swift wrote in her statement announcing the project. “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.”
Look inside to see if the risk paid off.
