Taylor Swift announces she’s releasing surprise ninth album Evermore at midnight

Taylor Swift has announced she will be releasing her ninth album Evermore at midnight tonight.

The 30-year-old pop star revealed the exciting news in an Instagram post, leaving her fans thrilled.

She told her 140million followers on her social media page: “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. 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.”

Her new album comes after the success of her eighth record, Folklore. 

The musician continued: “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. I loved the escapism I found in these imaginary/not imaginary tales. 

“I loved the ways you welcomed the dreamscapes and tragedies and epic tales of love lost and found into your lives. So I just kept writing them.”
