“not a lot going on at the moment,” Taylor Swift said in a recent Instagram post, calling back to the caption of an April post she made not long before announcing the release of her quarantine album folklore. With Taylor’s passion for Easter eggs and subtle clues, her fans were all over this, wondering what the popstar had in store.
Today, Taylor announced that folklore is going to be explored in a whole new way, a filmed studio session. “folklore was an album that was made completely in isolation,” she said in a post via Instagram story and Twitter fleet, “which means that Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff, and I never saw each other while we were collaborating and creating the album, 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 Justin Vernon, and it was filmed by Disney Plus.”
In what might be the closest thing we can get to a folklore concert experience for a while, Taylor and her co-creators reunite, play music, and talk about their work in a dreamy cabin setting perfect for the album’s much-loved woodsy aesthetic. “It was an amazing experience getting to really jump into the album with the people that I made it with,” Taylor said about the project. On November 25, 2020 at 12AM ET, folklore: the long pond studio sessions will be available to stream on Disney Plus.
