Taylor Swift dropped her second, surprise quarantine album Evermore on Friday, December 11, 2020, and she’s already dominating music charts. Lyric videos for all 15 tracks of the song showed up on YouTube along with the first official video that Taylor Swift directed — “Willow.” While many people found themselves reinventing their careers during the COVID-19 quarantine, Taylor used the time to write, collaborate, record, and direct.
First, she took the world by storm with her album Folklore that she released on July 24, 2020. Evermore is Folklore’s companion album and was released only five months following. Now, rumors abound that Taylor may drop another surprise, quarantine album — Woodvale.
Taylor featured several artists on the album including Bon Iver, The National, and Haim. The track list is as follows.
- “Champagne Problems”
- “Gold Rush”
- “Tis the Damn Season”
- “Tolerate It”
- “No Body, No Crime” (featuring Haim)
- “Coney Island” (featuring The National)
- “Cowboy Like Me”
- “Long Story Short”
- “Evermore” (featuring Bon Iver)
Taylor released the following announcement on Twitter when she dropped the musical gem. Evermore is Taylor Swift’s ninth studio album
You may watch the official video for the song “Willow” from Evermore below.
Fans long suspected that Taylor Swift’s boyfriend Joe Alwyn was using the pseudonym William Bowery when listed on the song credits for the album Folklore. Taylor later confirmed that their suspicions were correct. Now, William Bowery has returned and Joe Alwyn has contributed lyrics to three of the songs on Taylor’s new album: “Evermore,” “Coney Island,” and “Champagne Problems.”
As Taylor’s fans (Swifties) are adept at finding hidden meaning and Easter eggs in Taylor’s music, videos, and artwork, some suspect that the imagery depcited in the video “Willow” may indicate that Taylor and Joe Alwyn are secretly married.
Fans are thrilled that Taylor and Joe are still very much in love and after Taylor shared a photo where she wore a beautiful gown from Zimmermann with a bridal tiara, fans can’t stop wondering if she’s sending a message that she’s secretly married.
Evermore is gaining critical acclaim and is being hailed as one of 2020’s best alternative rock/folk albums.
