Taylor Swift just released a new film, Folklore: The Long Pond Studio, an intimate concert movie coinciding with her latest album, Folklore. The movie's now available on Disney + and gives fans a more in-depth look into the album, as well as an at-home concert.
In the film, which Taylor directed herself, the artist performs every song from Folklore for the first time. She also reveals each song's story to give fans a better idea of the meaning behind the album. Since putting on a concert isn't realistic right now, this film seems like the next best thing!
Swift announced the release of the film, along with a trailer, of the production, which was created with the help of Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff, and Justin Vernon. "It's an album that allows you to feel your feelings, and it's a product of isolation," Swift said about the album, which was initially released in July.
Well it’s 11/24 and 24-11=13 so I’ve got an announcement 🤓 You haven’t seen this film before ✨ folklore: the long pond studio sessions will be out tonight at midnight PST on @DisneyPlus! #folkloreOnDisneyPlus pic.twitter.com/BTWSRM0yaI— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) November 24, 2020
"There's something about the complete and total uncertainty of life," Swift said in the trailer. "If we're going to have to recalibrate everything, we should start with what we love the most first."
"I've never worked on an album like this," Jack Antonoff of the band Bleachers revealed. It turned out that all crew members became extremely invested in the project, and Swift shared, "I'm so glad we did because it turned out everybody needed a good cry, as well as us."
Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions is swift's third film this year, following the previous concert movie, City of Lover, which debuted in May. She also released Miss Americana in January, a documentary that premiered at Sundance Film Festival.
