Stream Taylor Swift's New Surprise Album, 'Folklore'”

But on her new album folklore, which arrived less than 24 hours after she announced it with a woodsy social media rollout, she steps up her game in a way she never has before.

Taylor Swift on Friday won some of the best reviews of her career with an album produced entirely during the coronavirus crisis that breaks new ground for the Grammy-winning artist. The result is, much like Swift's masterpieces Red and Lover, a tonal and emotional mish-mash that, while lengthy, still showcases some of the most nourishing songcraft that modern pop has to offer. The over-energized Swift who realizes what kind of situation his fans are released his previous album in August 2019 and has now released the album with the realization that this grief will pass as the world struggles with COVID-19. She owned it eight years ago. It wouldn't be the first case of secret identity in her work: Swift used the name Nils Sjöberg for her work on Calvin Harris' 2016 song "This Is What You Came For".

A highlight of the album is the single "Cardigan", and Swift dropped a video for it around the time of the album's release. "Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon and Carole King", Swift "reminds us once again that she's the most gifted songwriter in music today", writes Patrick Ryan at USA Today. Elsewhere, the production swells on "august" and "seven" are some of the most understatedly attractive moments of her discography.

While the songs were written and recorded while she was in isolation, she also revealed a list of other musicians whom she looked up and also worked with on the album. As has been well documented, Taylor Swift is an autobiographical songwriter. Most times, but this time it was true.

Taylor added: "I was 18, yeah". Lead single "Cardigan" is a narrative that seems to span years, vividly evoking two-timings and lost loves over Dessner's deft synthesis of orchestral folk and rhythmic pop, while opener "The 1", a rootsy spin on Lover's palette-cleansing opener "I Forgot That You Existed", conjures images - a bus stop, a Sunday matinee - that Swift hasn't been able to convincingly relate to since her teenage years. On "my tears ricochet", she quips, "If I'm dead to you / then why are you at the wake?"
