Taylor also shared that a video for a new song from the album titled 'Willow' will arrive along with the album — and to make this announcement even sweeter, Swift will be logging into the YouTube premiere page at midnight to answer fan questions.

The exciting news is that the album continues the working relationships from 'Folklore', which was cowritten and coproduced with Jack Antonoff and the National’s Aaron Dessner, and also includes a contribution from “WB,” William Broad, a pseudonym that she recently revealed is her boyfriend, British actor Joe Alwyn. Keep the news coming Taylor, we love it!

According to the tracklist that Swift posted, it also includes a collaboration with Haim called “No Body, No Crime”; a second duet with Bon Iver (who sang on the “Folklore” song “Exile”) on the title track; and a song with the National as her backing band called “Coney Island.”

The announcement definitely came as a surprise even to insiders, no one was expecting a whole new release just as the year was ending.

The string of posts continued with details about the album: 

All (digital downloads) of the album will include an exclusive, digital booklet with 16 brand new photos. You can pre-order evermore now at https://taylor.lnk.to/evermorealbum

Swifts 'Folklore', has already garnered six 2021 Grammy nominations, the album is actually Swift’s third release of the year. But wait just two weeks ago, Swift released a video on Disney Plus of live, stripped-down performances of songs from 'Folklore' called 'The Long Pond Studio Sessions'.

Taylor we here for it all!
