TAY TAY also dropped some news overnight!

Most of the things I had planned this summer didn’t end up happening, but there is something I hadn’t planned on that DID happen. And that thing is my 8th studio album, folklore. Surprise!

Tonight, at midnight (2pm today our time) I’ll be releasing my entire brand-new album of songs I’ve poured all of my whims, dreams, fears, and musings into.

I wrote and recorded this music in isolation but got to collaborate with some musical heroes of mine.

Most of the things I had planned this summer didn’t end up happening, but there is something I hadn’t planned on that DID happen. And that thing is my 8th studio album, folklore. Surprise 🤗Tonight at midnight I’ll be releasing my entire brand new album of songs I’ve poured all of my whims, dreams, fears, and musings into. I wrote and recorded this music in isolation but got to collaborate with some musical heroes of mine; @aarondessner (who has co-written or produced 11 of the 16 songs), @boniver (who co-wrote and was kind enough to sing on one with me), William Bowery (who co-wrote two with me) and @jackantonoff (who is basically musical family at this point). Engineered by Laura Sisk and Jon Low, mixed by Serban Ghenea & Jon Low. The album photos were shot by the amazing @bethgarrabrant. Before this year I probably would’ve overthought when to release this music at the ‘perfect’ time, but the times we’re living in keep reminding me that nothing is guaranteed. My gut is telling me that if you make something you love, you should just put it out into the world. That’s the side of uncertainty I can get on board with. Love you guys so much ♥️

 The album features 16 songs, and as a little treat she’s giving us 8 deluxe CD editions and 8 deluxe vinyl editions for one week only as a celebration of her eighth studio album.

You can pick up the special editions on her website here, or wait for it to (presumably) drop on Apple Music, Spotify and other digital platforms at 2pm.
