Hey you all! Ok, this article wasn’t planned, at all. So, the whole thing’s going to be hectic.
I am going crazy ASF! This is so unexpected! I was literally on the floor the second I saw this, not kidding. Who the hell thought something like this was going to happen?!
This is Taylor Swift! A queen who graces us with the best music ever when we need it the most!
I am a die hard Swiftie, if you still haven’t realised.

“ Most of the things I had planned this summer didn’t end up happening, but there is something I hadn’t planned on that DID happen. And that thing is my 8th studio album, folklore. Surprise 🤗Tonight at midnight I’ll be releasing my entire brand new album of songs I’ve poured all of my whims, dreams, fears, and musings into. I wrote and recorded this music in isolation but got to collaborate with some musical heroes of mine; aarondessner (who has co-written or produced 11 of the 16 songs), boniver (who co-wrote and was kind enough to sing on one with me), William Bowery (who co-wrote two with me) and jackantonoff (who is basically musical family at this point). Engineered by Laura Sisk and Jon Low, mixed by Serban Ghenea & Jon Low. The album photos were shot by the amazing bethgarrabrant. 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. 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. Love you guys so much ♥️ ”
~ This (the one on top) was Taylor’s caption announcing the album.
“ folklore will have 16 songs on the standard edition, but the physical deluxe editions will include a bonus track called “the lakes.” Because this is my 8th studio album, I made 8 deluxe CD editions and 8 deluxe vinyl editions that are available for one week😄 Each deluxe edition has unique covers, photos, and artwork. Available exclusively at taylorswift.com ”

So, my fellow Swifties, I feel you. Either we’re screaming our lungs out or we’re shell shocked. I went through both phases.
Lot’s of love
