Taylor Swift released a surprise second album last night and we can't deal
The gift we needed in 2020.
Being the same age as Taylor Swift I feel like I've been exactly the right age for all of her albums on her musical journey.
An angsty teen for her bluesy country tracks and in my twenties hitting night clubs just as she was getting more into her pop/dance track stage.
I wondered how Taylor's music would change now that she's in her 30s and when she released Folklore this year I think the world collectively decided that she's entered probably her best song writing stage yet.
Folklore is stunning, but guess what, it's not the only album for Taylor in 2020.
Yes, last night, Taylor Swift released her second album of 2020, Evermore.
Taylor has always spoken about how her lucky number is 13, having only recently donated $13,000 each to struggling mothers.
Taylor says that it's because her current age, 31, is the reverse of her lucky number that made her want to get extra creative this year;
"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! I also know this holiday season will be a lonely one for most of us and if there are any of you out there who turn to music to cope with missing loved ones the way I do, this is for you.
There are 15 tracks on the standard edition of evermore, but the deluxe physical edition will include two bonus tracks - “right where you left me” and “it’s time to go”
All *digital downloads* of the album will include an exclusive, digital booklet with 16 brand new photos. You can pre-order evermore now at store.taylorswift.com."
I think it's safe to say we're all going to be busy today downloading Taylor's new album.
