In July, Taylor Swift caught everybody by surprise with folklore, an unannounced album featuring the pop superstar linking up with Aaron Dessner of The National (co-writing or producing 11 of the LP’s 16 songs), William Bowery (two co-writes), Bon Iver (co-write and a vocal guest spot on one song) and Jack Antonoff.

The album was surprising in its depth — at least to those who weren’t already dedicated Swift fans — and was met with near-universal acclaim.

The recording sessions for folklore must have been especially productive, because Thursday morning Swift announced a companion album, evermore, which will be released on digital platforms late Thursday night/early Friday morning. It’s all geared around her 31st birthday, which comes up this Sunday, Dec. 13:

As the track listing indicates, Swift worked alongside The National, Bon Iver and Haim for this collection of songs … and the whole aesthetic, at least, implies it might sound similar in nature and spirit to the eclecticism on display throughout folklore.

When the album drops, Swift will also premiere a video for “Willow”:

Said Taylor Swift of the process behind evermore:

“In the past I’ve always treated albums as one-off eras and moved onto planning the next one after an album was released. There was something different with folklore. In making it, I felt less like I was departing and more like I was returning.”

“I loved the escapism I found in these imaginary/not imaginary tales. I loved the ways you welcomed the dreamscapes and tragedies and epic tales of love lost and found into your lives. So I just kept writing them.”

“And I loved creating these songs with Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff, WB and Justin Vernon. We’ve also welcomed some new (and longtime) friends to our musical kitchen table this time around … “

Evermore comes on the heels of a special Disney+ concert film featuring Swift and her folklore collaborators, which premiered Thanksgiving week.
