If there’s one thing that can stabilize most of the music world, it’s the astonishing Taylor Swift album. And that’s exactly what happened on Thursday night. An album for “Folklore” that didn’t sign the release agreement, virtually no one knew that Swift was coming until Thursday morning when it would arrive in about 15 hours. Music’s social media channels talked around the world about low lo-key and intimate album digging – something that was probably the reason for this surprise – which was originally created in collaboration with Brooklyn-based Aaron Desner was the alternative band The National.
One of the highlights of the album is the single “Cardigan” and Swift released a video for it when the album was released. The song from the single album is part of a “fictional high school trilogy” (for more information, read our review). Although there isn’t much schooling in the video, it certainly fits the album’s folkloric and intimate embarrassment, Swift starts playing the piano in a dimly lit room and then sits down on a wooden floor filled with water and sits down and ends the song on the algae-aka piano. Waterfall from behind. Then the same thing happens when he climbs on the piano bench and rises into the stormy sea that only appears to float on the piano. These are all very “Narnia”.
In the announcement, Swift mentioned that she directed the shoot of the video, “Supervised by a medical inspector, everyone wore masks, stayed away from each other, even I did my own hair, make-up and styling.”
In a social media post, Swift explained that the album was the result of many of her plans for 2020 – including supporting her 2019 album “Lover” with a short stadium tour – due to the epidemic. On Lockdown, he co-wrote the lyrics for the new album, partnered with Bon Iver, William Bowery and Jack Antonoff.
