ISBN Retrieved April 11, On December 10,three days prior her 31st birthday, Swift posted nine photos on Instagram, which together formed an image depicting the singer's back. In another post across her social media, she announced her ninth studio album, titled Evermorereleasing at midnight. She revealed the track-list, and a music video for its opening track, " Willow ", which would premiere on YouTube alongside the album release.
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". 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.
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 ways you welcomed the dreamscapes and tragedies and epic tales of love lost and found into your lives. So I just kept writing them. Despite releasing FolkloreSwift continued to work remotely with Dessner, who would send her his instrumental tracks, to which she would write the lyrics. Spontaneously, these sessions resulted in a project that was a natural extension of Folklore which soon assumed its individual identity, becoming Evermore.
Dessner stated he "didn't need to talk Out Of The Woods - Taylor Swift - 1989 (File about structure or ideas or anything" with Swift, and dubbed Evermore a "weird avalanche " effecting from Folklore.
Swift embraced the style of songwriting that stemmed from Folklorelyrics rooted in first-person fiction. To celebrate FolkloreDessner casually composed an instrumental track "Westerly", named after the location of Swift's Rhode Island home. An hour later, Swift wrote "Willow" to the track and sent it back to him. Dessner realized they were creating a counterpart to Folklore only after the duo wrote more than seven songs.
He composed "Tolerate It" on a piano in 10 8 time signature and sent it to Swift, conjuring a scene in her mind upon hearing the track; she sent it back with finished lyrics.
Dessner stated he "cried when [he] first heard" its lyrics. Dessner narrated, "we played all night and drank a lot of wine after the fireside chat—and we were all pretty drunk, to be honest". The next morning, she approached Dessner in his kitchen with " 'Tis the Damn Season ", which she wrote during the night.
Swift had specific ideas on how she wanted the song, including a guest feature from American pop Album) band Haimwho recorded their vocals at Ariel Rechtshaid 's Los Angeles home and forwarded it to Swift. The song's harmonica and guitar riffs were played by Josh Kaufman, who also played the harmonica on " Betty " from Folklore; JT Bates played the drums, and also did the same on "Dorothea".
I've rarely had this kind of chemistry with anyone in my life—to be able to write together, to make so many beautiful songs together in such a short period of time. Inevitably, I think we will continue to be in each other's artistic and personal lives.
I don't know exactly what the next form that will take, but certainly, it will continue. I do think this story, this era, has concluded, and I think in such a beautiful way with these sister records. Aaron Dessner and his twin brother, Bryce Dessnersent Swift some of the instrumentals they made for their band, American indie rock band the National.
One of those was what would become " Coney Island ". Swift and Alwyn wrote its lyrics, and recorded it with her vocals. After listening to the demo, the Dessner brothers felt that the song is very related to the National, and envisioned Matt Berninger the band's lead vocalist singing it, and Bryan Devendorf the drummer drumming it.
Aaron Dessner informed Berninger, who was "excited" for the idea. The band assembled, Devendorf played the drums, while his brother Scott Devendorf played the bass and pocket piano; Bryce Dessner helped produce the song.
The latter's drone is present in the former's bridge. The backing rhythm of "Marjorie" was composed with an Allovers Hi-hat Generator, a software developed by producer Ryan Olson, which had been used in many Big Red Machine songs. The instrument takes any sound and splits them into samples, and regenerates them in randomized musical patterns. Dessner went through the patterns, picked his favorite parts, looped them, developed them into an instrumental, and sent it to Swift, who wrote "Marjorie" to it, a song about her maternal grandmother and opera singer, Marjorie Finlay.
Swift also sent a folder of Finlay's opera records to Dessner, who sampled some of it on the song. Dessner had been working on the composition of "Happiness" sincethinking it would be a Big Red Machine song; Swift, however, admired its instrumentals and ended up finishing its lyrics, which was also the case with "Right Where You Left Me".
Vernon was profoundly involved in Evermore more than Folklore. He played the drums on "Cowboy like Me" and "Closure", guitar and banjo on " Ivy ", and contributed backing vocals in "Marjorie". For "Closure", he processed Swift's vocals through his Messina vocal modifier,  which distorted her soft timbre into a robotic growl. He intentionally added "a wintry nostalgia" to most of the music in Evermoreleaning towards the idea Swift told him.
Dessner said mixing the album's 17 songs was a " Herculean task" and that the sound engineer Jon Low thought it would not be finished on time.
The standard edition of Evermore is one hour long, consisting of 15 tracks, while the deluxe adds two bonus songs. Evermore is an alternative rock chamber rock  and folk-pop  record with country elements,  infusing its predecessor's minimal indie folk,  and lo-fi  styles, but looser and more experimental in nature.
Rolling Stone wrote Evermore deepens Swift's goth-folk vision. Evermore is an intimate album  heavily rooted in elaborate first-person storytelling from third-person perspectives character studies,  and narrative mythmaking.
Akin to its sister album, Evermore lyrically incorporates nature, landscapes and objects in the skysuch as crescent moonsunrise, cometsamber skies, precipicewillowclover and ivy. Evermore opens with "Willow", a chill chamber folk  love song  propelled by picked guitars  coupled with glockenspielorchestrations, programmed drums, and a breathless chorus.
Its frenzy verses are couplets delivered in a pulsating rhythm over persistent beats,   with a red herring in its intro and outro made of layered vocals. Expressing jealousy and insecurity towards an attractive subject, "Gold Rush" limns the narrator's infatuation for the subject in a daydream  and depicts her distaste at her own incapacitation in the face of beauty, comparing it to gold rushes. The fourth track, "'Tis the Damn Season", is a Christmas songbut departs from traditional festive balladry.
The ninth track, "Coney Island", is an alternative rock,  waltz  and indie-folk duet  with Matt Berninger of the National. Swift sings about two " gold-digging " con artists in the eleventh track,  "Cowboy like Me", who unexpectedly fall in love with each other, while frequenting resorts and deceiving rich individuals.
Swift retreads Reputation in the song,   summarizing her life's worse moments   and her personal redemption. The deluxe edition of Evermore includes two bonus tracks: "Right Where You Left Me" portrays the heart-rending fate of a love frozen in time, over dreamy acoustics of twangy guitars.
Following the lush, ghostly, woodland aesthetic of FolkloreEvermore takes upon a wintry theme, a yuletide version of the former's cottagecore. The cover artwork of Evermore shows Swift in a barren field,  facing away from the camera, looking over bare trees in the distance, which reflect the last glow of an autumnal sunset.
Evermore was released on December 11,two days before Swift's 31st birthday, to digital music and streaming platforms only. The CDs were released on December 18, Billboard reported that the delayed release of the album's physical formats is owed to its surprise release and the time-consuming manufacturing process of physical albums, specifically the vinyl copies.

Evermore was met with widespread acclaim upon release, with several critics admiring its kinship with Folklore and Swift's expansion of her musical boundaries. Distinguishing Swift as an unrivaled songwriter, Brodie Lancaster of The Sydney Morning Herald found Evermore traveling deeper into the singer's fictitious narratives, and praised the depth and variety of its characters.
Spin critic Bobby Olivier thought the "career-redefining" album finds Swift at her prime, joining "the pantheon of songwriters who consistently deliver despite unimaginable expectations".
He regarded Evermore a stronger work than Folklore. Club also chose Evermore over Folkloreand noted that the former continues the latter's " universe-building " with stronger writing and greater sonic cohesion. The Independent writer Helen Brown deemed its songs haunting and contemplative, and likened their nature to a campfire setting. He explained that Evermore explores the complications of adult love more extensively than its predecessor, and flaunts Swift's boldest and richest songwriting.
