Just in time for the holiday season, Taylor Swift announced that she was dropping the “sister” album to Folklore. In case you aren’t a true Swiftie, “Folkore” is the album she released in July of 2020. Many fans said that this album truly helped them get through some of the most difficult moments of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Taylor Swift’s Evermore and Folklore are a Cottagecore Dream
This newest winter installment is called “Evermore”, and it truly does carry on the same calm, whimsical vibe. Somehow, she truly did capture the sounds of winter. Taylor Swift Evermore has 15 tracks, including “‘Tis the Damn Season”. (Which is perfect to play while you’re wrapping presents or hanging out by the Christmas tree.)
In her Netflix documentary Miss Americana, it’s clear that Taylor Swift is an artist who dedicates her life to her entire life to music. Under lockdown, she can no longer go on tour or meet social obligations. This has given her far more time than usual to write. Fans are thrilled, and many have already expressed their gratitude to have new music from their favorite artist in the midst of lockdown.
On Twitter, Taylor said, “I have no idea what will come next. I have no idea about a lot of things these days and so I’ve clung to the one thing that keeps me connected to you all. That thing always has and always will be music. And may it continue, evermore.”
Along with the new album, we also found a surprise on Taylor Swift’s YouTube channel. In her new music video “Willow”, Taylor follows a golden thread through other realms to finally be reunited with her soulmate. The year 2020 has been difficult for most people. One of the ways we’ve found solace is by delving into fairytales. Trends like cottagecore are on the rise, with people dreaming of simpler times. I could feel all of those vibes encompassed in this video.
