Are you ready for it?
Taylor Swift gave her fans the ultimate surprise on Tuesday when she announced the trailer for her new film "folklore: the long pond studio sessions." The best part? Viewers didn't have to wait long to see the project because it dropped Wednesday at midnight PST on Disney+.
"Well it's 11/24," the 30-year-old singer explained on Instagram, "and 24-11=13 so I've got an announcement."
The film provides Swifties with "an intimate concert" of her eighth studio album, held at Aaron Dessner's Long Pond studio in Hudson Valley, New York.
"So folklore was an album that was made completely in isolation, which means that Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff and I never saw each other while we were collaborating and creating the album," Swift said in a video posted to Instagram Stories. "But, we got together at Long Pond studios and, for the very first time, got to create this music together, play through it, talk through it. We were joined by [Bon Iver's] Justin Vernon, and it was filmed by Disney+."
The 10-time Grammy winner then said she couldn't wait for followers to see the film.
"It was an amazing experience getting to really jump into the album with the people that I made it with," Swift said, "and I really hope you enjoy it."
Created amid the global coronavirus pandemic, "folklore," according to Swift, is "an album that allows you to feel your feelings and it's a product of isolation."
"This could have been a time where I absolutely lost my mind," she told Dessner in the sneak peek, "and instead I think, you know, this album was, like, a real flotation device for both of us."
Throughout the nearly two-minute teaser, fans saw Swift sing her hits, like "cardigan" and "august." At one point, Antonoff also told the artist he's "never worked on an album like this."
"I was so glad that we did," Swift replied, "because it turned out that everybody needed a good cry, as well as us."
