WTF? Taylor Swift Dropping a Second 2020 Album Tonight Called “Evermore” to Celebrate 31st Birthday


Taylor Swift has a surprise for everyone: a new album called “Evermore,” the follow up to her massive summer hit, “Folklore.” It’s coming out tonight at midnight.

She writes on Twitter: “I’m elated to tell you that my 9th studio album, and folklore’s sister record, will be out tonight at midnight eastern. It’s called evermore.”

She continues: “Ever since I was 13, I’ve been excited about turning 31 because it’s my lucky number backwards, which is why I wanted to surprise you with this now. You’ve all been so caring, supportive and thoughtful on my birthdays and so this time I thought I would give you something!”

Swift turns 31 on Sunday. She’s already had the top selling album of the year with “Folklore,” now nominated for several Grammy Awards including Album of the Year. “Evermore” solidifies her position as Overachiever of her generation!

She writes: “To put it plainly, we just couldn’t stop writing songs. To try and put it more poetically, it feels like we were standing on the edge of the folklorian woods and had a choice: to turn and go back or to travel further into the forest of this music. We chose to wander deeper in.I’ve never done this before. 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.”

Just think of it: when touring resumes late next year, Swift has enough material to clone herself and send out two different tours simultaneously. “Evermore” is also her third album in two years counting “Lover,” which was already a smash hit. Extraordinary.
