While Taylor Swift likes to talk about how normal and boring her life is, she’s unusual in at least one respect: The woman does not sleep. Fresh on the heel of her record-breaking album of quiet quarantine anthems Folklore comes another project. Disney Plus will host the album’s concert film — or, at least, what counts for a concert film in 2020. The intimate affair, which united Swift with her band of collaborators like The National’s Aaron Dessner, Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, was recorded in upstate New York at Long Pond Studio, where the National recorded their own Sleep Well Beast.
There’s a trailer and everything.
The film will drop on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, and the live album will appear on streaming platforms as well.
It was already hard to imagine Taylor Swift getting any bigger than she is, but her newly Grammy-nominated Folklore feels like a bid not just for stardom but legacy. In an age of flash-in-the-pan hits and single mines, Swift feels like someone who is going to be around for a while.
