Taylor Swift has come to save the year, yet again. She dropped a second surprise album – a sister to folklore – evermore. This album was another collaborative effort with Jack Antonoff, Aaron Dessner, and Justin Vernon. It also included another song with Bon Iver, plus collabs with Haim and The National.
I would have never called myself a “fan” of Taylor Swift. I hated her early work but grew to like her more when she dropped Red and her music matured. 1989 was a decent album and then she lost me again with Reputation. I never took the time to fully listen to Lover. But folklore- folklore I could get with. evermore is another collection of those light, wispy, whimsical songs we heard on folklore. I mean, I was excited as soon as I saw there was a song with The National.
My favourite tracks? willow, coney island, ivy, and the title track – evermore. I can’t decide on my #1, but I gotta say – evermore hits different when Bon Iver comes in.
